“I really enjoy reading the newsletter Peanut Butter & Jelly [and want] to congratulate [you] Kim for [your] idea of putting [out] this employee newsletter.  The reason I read it is to be updated of any training that might benefit me because when I first met Kim, I [mentioned] that I would be interested in any trainings that might benefit me, I would be willing to attend.  This newsletter serves its purpose of updating employees of what is going on at the upper level of the company, fringe benefits and encourages employees [on] having a good attitude at work.”

Summary

I still believe I can change the world single-handedly!  I believe in encouraging people, building them up and advancement from within and I'm looking for a company looking for someone just like me.

I'm the person that believes in you when you don't have it in you to believe in yourself any longer.  I'm the person who see's your strengths and helps you capitalize on them, maximize their value on your resume and teaches you how to verbalize your greatest qualities in interviews. 

I'm the personal coach you always wanted, but thought your friends would laugh at you for having or thought you could never afford.  I'm the person you want on speed dial for that last minute confidence boost before the interview!
