We had the good fortune of connecting with Tonnesha Edmond and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tonnesha, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
In Aug. 2020, my son Casimir was born 3 months premature and has been oxygen-dependent since birth. Because of his chronic lung condition, he requires around-the-clock care. As a means of income and schedule flexibility, I launched my company Pretty Resumes. Pretty Resumes is a professional writing service that specializes in career services. Throughout high school and college, I was always the go-to for resumes, but I never considered making it into a business until 2020.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
At Pretty Resumes, we specialize in resumes, cover letters, interview preparation, career coaching, and more. We also offer ghostwriting services such as Thank You Letters, personal statements for college, corporate biographies, capability statements, and more. We are known for our simple, sleek designed, highly effective resumes. Our processes are streamlined and easy because we value our clients’ time. Because of the world-class experience we provide our clients, we have outstanding reviews on Google and Facebook.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We would DEFINITELY go to brunch. Atlanta has so many nice brunch spots.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to send a shoutout to my family and friends as they are always there to support my business ventures even if that means babysitting (LOL). I would also like to send a special shoutout to my significant other, Bo aka Bo Lavish. No matter how wild my ideas are, he always supports them and encourages me to stay focused.
