We provide a new masthead, headline, About summary, and three previous Experience listings. You also get a profile settings checklist and recommendations summary.
Will you load my new profile into LinkedIn?
Unfortunately, due to LinkedIn's Fort Knox meets the Pentagon security features, we can't. We provide you with instructions to update your new profile.
Why you don't have a thousand reviews with lots of stars?
The vast majority of our clients prefer to be discreet and let their materials do the talking. If you're reading this, chances are you heard about Courtney through peer, friend, or colleague. We work with a self-selected group of discriminating clients. We're happy to provide samples or references.
Do I pay anything for an information session?
No. There's no point in putting up barriers to helping you get the information you need. These 15 minutes are sometimes necessary to determine fit and allow you to proceed with confidence.
I want something that doesn't fall into any of these packages
No problem. If we've worked together before, book an ad-hoc session here. If you're not sure how to proceed, drop our team an email and we'll make a recommendation. If we've never worked together before, start with a free consult.
