    Get to know other resume writers in our community with our “10 Questions” series. Our fifteenth profile focuses on Madelyn Mackie — owner of Madelyn Mackie & Associates | Activate Your Career Dreams

    Mackie is the “career activator”! As a Certified Career Management Coach, member of the National Resume Writers’ Association, and former board member of the National Speakers Association, Mackie offers conference keynotes, professional development trainings, and career coaching to help her clients design unique, job-getting documents, build successful career plans, and create lifelong success. She has been a professional resume writer for nine years. 

    “I never set out to be a resume writer. My goal was to be a professional speaker.

    Being a career business owner isn’t always what you dreamed it would be, is it? The less-than-supportive voices in your head (we all have them; you’re not crazy) keep telling you that you’ll never live up to your dream of being everything you wanted to be. We’ve all had these moments of self-doubt and, for the most part, we push through them. But negative self-talk about money undermines our self-confidence. Money blocks work their way into our psyche and hang out there for years, wreaking havoc on our lives and happiness, and you probably don’t even know it’s happening. 

    One thing is for certain: Your attitude about money directly effects your balance sheet. We believe that small but insistent voice that says, “My clients won’t pay more” or “You don’t know enough to charge that” or even “You don’t have what it takes to earn a six-figure income.” And when we believe it, it becomes true. 

    There’s a simple solution, and it starts with a shift in your money mindset. This 33-page special report is full of insight and exercises to help you change these long-held beliefs, write a new money story, and bust through your money blocks. Change the way you think and act about money and change your life — and business — forever. 

    Check out the Your Money Mindset Special Report in our online store

    The Your Money Mindset Special Report is available with a BeAResumeWriter.com Bronze Membership — in the Member-Only Special Reports section — until Nov. 30, 2022.
