Skills

Creative Skills
I desire to express my creativity.  I want to find what will catch someone's eye and keep their attention.  I feel successful when combine a picture or expression that closes the deal on a sale.  I enjoy designing anything with colorful arrangements or boldness to pull the attention to the product I am working on.   I enjoy writing.  I am currently working on writing my own book in my spare time.  I have also worked on a few children's short stories.     I find it a desired challenge to mix the correct words with the perfect illustrations.
Leadership Skills
I have no problems taking the role of a leader.  I enjoy making sure that everything is done as planned.  I enjoy being in a leadership position to: organize, delegate, and work hard to succeed. 
Researching Skills
I love to research and dig to find the whole story of what I am researching.  I like to find details and include them in my work, when they are needed.  I mostly enjoy research, because I get to learn about new things.
Organizational Skills
I am a very organized person.  I like to know exactly where something is and what needs to be done with it.  I feel organization brings simplicity in life.
Interpersonal Skills
Interpersonal skills is another area that I feel is essential.  I have always worked closely with my clients and most bosses. 
Communication Skills
I have two degrees from college in Speech Communications and Communications & Theatre Arts.  I taught as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at ASU during my Masters degree there.  I feel clear communication is essential when working with anyone to get the results needed and wanted.
Wordpress Website Design and Maintenance
I began working with Wordpress' web design for my parents in their real estate venture.  I learned most of what  I know concerning Wordpress websites by searching for what I needed to do.  I enjoy designing the site to fit the business or main idea of what is being sold or advertised.  I don't have many years experience, but I feel I can do a good job and learn anything else I need to learn.  If I don't know it, I learn from tutorials or others that use it.
Wordpress Blogging
I started helping others on their blogs over 3 years ago.  I enjoy creating the design of the blog to grab attention and keep them reading.  I also enjoy coming up with the most tag words for posts, so I can to bring in more traffic to the blog.  I currently have 3 blogs for 3 different reasons.     I used my passion for education and homeschooling in one blog to share about resources I found that are FREE or not very expensive.  I also shared things my children and I do for our homeschooling.   "Free or Inexpensive Homeschool Resources" --  http://excellenthomeschoolresources.wordpress.com/   In my second blog, I focus on living life to the fullest.  My main focus currently has been finding a job that will work with me homeschooling my children.     "Winding Roads in this Journey Called Life" -- http://cmrescapefromstress.wordpress.com/   In my most recent start of a blog, I focus on mental health topics (stemming from my most recent degree in Rehabilitation Counseling).     "When the Mind Verses Dreams" -- http://whenthemindversesdreams.wordpress.com/  
Microsoft Powerpoint
I have used Microsoft Powerpoint for almost as long as Microsoft Word.  I loved using Powerpoint for my educational purposes.  I also loved using it when I taught communication classes.  It made things easier to me to have it all organized in a powerpoint with colorful layouts to keep everyone interested.  I think the content along with the layout is essential.  If you can't keep someone interested, then the content doesn't matter.
Microsoft Word
I use Microsoft Word for multiple things on a daily basis.  I started using Microsoft Word when I went to college.  I have continued using it to design any documents I need to do in written form.

Interest

I am interested in doing work from home.  I love to write (technical writing, research with report, blogging, responding to e-mails or notifications, etc.).  I have helped the real estate company my parents work for to manage their website through wordpress.

I guess to put my interests in bullet form, I would say:

  • writing
  • research
  • basic website design (preferably Wordpress based, but I am willing to learn others too)
  • blogging
  • proof-reading
  • Posting videos or pictures
  • ... I am open to other opportunities.
