A love for learning
I am a self-starter. What I do not know, I will research. If I do not know a program or skill, I will find out as much as I can about it and teach myself. I put this to practice in my first job when nobody would train me on how to use the system because they were too inundated with work. I asked a few questions and then self-taught the rest. I quickly and gladly became a very useful member of the team.   When I started my own business, I researched, read and self-taught in many aspects of business, accounting, human relations, networking and advertising. There is a wealth of knowledge out there and I firmly believe all it takes is a little hard work to learn something new.   I consistently seek out new and challenging opportunities and skills.
My college English professor said I should have chosen to major in Journalism because she was so impressed with my writing abilities. I have excellent grammatical skills and am attentive to detail.
