Kyle Elliott is a Career & Life Coach, Resume & LinkedIn Writer, Professional Speaker, Caffeine Addict and a Disneyland Annual Passholder.

As a career coach Kyle started his business on Fiverr, charging a mere 5 bucks to edit resumes and write LinkedIn profiles. His goal was to support his soy, sugar-free vanilla latte addiction through undergrad and grad school.
