About Me

Good Day,

The key to running a successful business that operates at its full potential against the competition is not what the average working professional thinks it is. It is not a result of simple hard work, tenacity, current technologies, or business models. The key to running a successful business is telling the best story that makes the business stand out among the crowd.

I am living proof of this endeavor.

Over the course of my educational and professional career, I have learned how to take skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and analysis, leadership, discipline, and perseverance, and apply them in a creative, thought-provoking way. A business is only able to thrive, grow, and innovate not by telling its consumers what the competition cannot do, but by emphasizing what its business can do. The question "why you?" is by far the most vital in any professional setting, and I have mastered the ability to work with any company to explain why its products and services surpass all others.

After obtaining my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Georgia, I have gone on to enhance my skills in retail management and administration as well as professional authorship. I am interested in finding a position that will allow me to put my years of experience to their most productive capacity and build a company or department to its pinnacle of success.

Thank you for your consideration,

Letitia R. Carelock
