About Elaine Lawless

Elaine has two young children, and is married to a professional chef, which means she rarely, if ever, cooks the dinner. She works part-time for a US publishing company and in 2006 she started her own CV writing business on the side, igniting a passion for entrepreneurship and a determination to help others achieve their career goals. She spends her time juggling two kids, a husband and a dog with a part-time job, a business and the remnants of what used to be a social life.
