A training resume is just another name for a folder where you are going to start keeping your list of training achieved, history and important documents. Much like the training folders mentioned in The Marketplace series by Laura Antoniou you can build a file on yourself to offer your current or future dominant partner(s). Throughout the course of this program, you will learn how to write your own files, learn to focus your training in the direction you wish to go and develop a personal development plan for your own growth.

It all begins with the basic information that all dominant request of a submissive when they are first getting to know someone. This is known as a basic profile. Personal basic profiles are a great way to distill information in an interesting and digestible format.The process of writing a personal profile is to intrigue the reader about the person it is written about.

  1. Be Concise and condense - No one needs to know everything in every small detail about you in a profile. Try to say it in as few words as possible.
  2. Choose your adjectives - Use a thesaurus if you need to. Find words that clearly state what you want to say.
  3. Choose specific terms - 'I like sports' is not nearly as clear as 'I like soccer'. Make sure you express yourself completely.
  4. Write in outline format - Outline format is easier to follow and give a snapshot of what you are like.
  5. Present a 3D image of yourself - Don't just focus on a few aspects of your life.
  6. Be honest - Don't lie or exaggerate.
  7. Take pride in who you are - Use positive words but do not brag.

Some information you may want to include:

  • personality (choose 3 power words)
  • likes/dislikes
    • food
    • entertainment
    • activities
    • hobbies
    • music
  • family life
  • education
  • religion/spirituality/beliefs
  • causes you are active in
  • living situation
    • environment
    • location
  • pet peeves (You can learn a lot about a person on this issue alone.)
  • goals/dreams/plans
    • professional
    • personal
  • travel
  • hope to accomplish
  • family structure or size (i.e. 'Would like to have 5 kids.')
  • unusual experiences (i.e. 'Worked in the peace corps in the Sudan,' 'went to Germany in school,' 'survived a severe storm,' 'met famous person,' 'home-schooled kids.')
  • what is important to you (i.e. 'saving money to help the needy' or 'protect the environment.')
  • talents or skills
    • musical
    • artistic
    • sports
    • drama
  • groups or affiliations or online communities you belong to (another way to learn about someone)

Once you get the basics together you can start developing your training history. We'll start putting that together in future posts.
