Bridget Weide Brooks: Industry Hero 2015

Presented September 18, 2015
Charlotte, North Carolina

“Through her affordable yet high-value membership website, BeAResumeWriter.com, Bridget has transformed the résumé-writing industry. Through her business model, she not only empowers and advocates for small business owners, but also exemplifies successful small-business ownership. Her savvy entrepreneurship is balanced by her huge heart, so she is able to not only grow her thriving business, but also be a true servant and steward to her members. 
 
Bridget helps résumé writers start, grow, and elevate their small businesses by providing quality content, information, and support that can transform a solopreneurship with limited manpower and resources. Bridget also freely shares quality information with the public through her blog. Her experience and expert knowledge of the résumé-writing industry is invaluable. She could be very successful focusing her efforts on running a résumé-writing practice, but she chooses to help others thrive in this industry. For that reason, I am proud to nominate Bridget Weide Brooks for the Inaugural Industry Hero Award.”
