Top ** Reasons Why You Should Hire Me

(Not the only ten reasons, just the top ten)

By Shawn Nelson • 214.***.****

www.1Light.com

1. I’m an expert at Photoshop

I can spit out Illustrator designs, I use InDesign a lot, and I know what a Pantone color is. My design is professional, clean, and client appropriate. I have Logo and Print Design expertise as well as a strong conviction about branding and brand Management. 2. I know web technologies.

I’ve built web sites for ministries, startups, small businesses and corporations. I have considerable experience in web design and Content Management. My email campaign designs, e-newsletters and web designs have been used to create millions of dollars of revenue.

3. I’m experienced with business development, creative management and creative work flow. Having run my own business as well as frequent freelancing, I understand what it takes to develop new business and keep it. I also understand the difference between doing it all myself and delegating it to others. I’m not afraid of either one. 4. I’ve managed both small and large creative teams. I understand deadlines, decisions and dealing with customers. I enjoy mentoring, coaching and teaching. I lead with confidence and understanding. I get things done. 5. I communicate well.

I’m not a scary, antisocial creative prima donna type; I’ve met with and won over difficult customers and co-workers. I’m great at bringing people together and delivering the message. I possess the ability to retain composure in stressful situations, to adapt quickly and seek alternative solutions, to think on my feet, to see humor in most everything, and to laugh at myself. I offer honest opinions; and hard work, dedication, and loyalty.

6. I’m life savvy.

I understand what it is that people face on a personal level. I know what they mean when they explain their ideas and goals. I know how to listen proactively and speak their language life. Customers and clients, as well as employees want to do work with someone they feel they can trust. They need that. In business, as in life, the stakes are too high for anything else.

7. I can play many different roles.

I’m able to do many different things well. I am beyond multi-tasking, which is usually code for “doing way more than you are capable of doing at one time.” I make it a priority to know how to do every job. Not so I can do it all, but so I understand and can help the team be successful.

8. I’m a nice guy.

9. People like working with me.

In life and at work, I’m friendly, mellow, calm under stress, and really hard to offend. I hang out with current and former co-workers, and we don’t just talk about work. I don’t have many odd hang ups or bizarre pet peeves. I’m enthusiastic and passionate about interesting projects and doing things the right way. 10. Vision.

Companies need leaders who have vision for success. They are proactive and responsible leaders who have a plan, set goals, prioritize life, are win-win minded, listen well, and always search for ways to make themselves and the team better. The value of your investment in machines or materials will always be measured by the quality of the people you invest in. They are your most valuable resource. For quality, leadership and creativity hire me.

I’ve been a designer and creative

content consultant for many years

and genuinely enjoy doing what I do.

The challenge of creating something

that makes people take notice is fun

and pretty cool. I love brainstorming

and being creative.

I also love singing and acting, especially

when you put them together. I’m a sports

fan, a movie watcher, and a family man.
