I had an impact on the sale by providing a positive and assertive approach to the customers.
I was a personal care giver to a person with a rare auto immune disorder that was confined to a bed. I provided the daily routine for personal hygiene, meals, and managed all PT and OT appointments. I also provided various forms of personal encouragement such as reading inspirational books, movies and personal discussions about goals. I set short term and long term goals that were realistic and appropriate for the patients capabilities. In addition, I also provided daily encouragement to the individual in order to maintain a positive outlook in order to accomplish those goals.
I helped children achieve educational goals. I would tell the children what I would like to see on their next reports from their teachers, and make sure that they understood that they were capable of achieving these goals. Often, having someone to feel accountable to really helped them. I saw positive changes in the children, and they were often proud to tell me about the accomplishments they made. I responded very positively to these, and believe that fostered confidence in the children.
