During my workout today, I read about a book called “29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life”. The author, Cami Walker, was struggling with worsening multiple sclerosis and received an interesting “prescription” from a South African healer: “Give away 29 gifts in 29 days”. And give, she did. By the month’s end, Walker’s health and happiness had improved, and she had started a worldwide giving movement.
How COOL is that?
I immediately asked myself, ‘What can I give that would help improve someone else’s life?” The first thought that came to mind was my editing services. I have been writing and editing professionally for nearly 15 years, and I have always been the go-to-girl when friends and family have needed help with resumes, emails, web sites, you name it.
Are you looking for a new job? Starting a business? Considering going back to school? It’s a new year and many of us have personal and professional goals that we are tackling (or that are on the ‘to do’ list). I would like to help be a part of your success.
Do you have a resume, cover letter, professional bio, or personal statement (for college, grad school, dental school, medical school, whatever) that you'd like some help with? I will help you polish your document to the best of my ability, ABSOLUTELY FREE.
My only request is that, in return, you do something kind for someone else. I would love to hear what you did and how it was received, so that we can keep sharing the love.
- The first 5 people who respond to my blog in the comments section of this post and then send a follow-up email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of their request will be considered for editing assistance.
- Please do not send me your homework—that’s not cool and I won’t do it!
- That’s it! I’m keeping this as simple as possible.
I look forward to seeing what the universe produces through our shared efforts.
What can YOU do right now, with your God-given talents, to help others? Share the love!
