Creativity: This is something that can be applied in all things. Problems are challenges that may need creative solutions. Open mindedness and willingness to change, evolve, and improve are invaluable. Whether I think of it or discover it, a new way can be the best way.

Communication: Through experience I have learned to articulate the relative aspects of the work I am discussing. Using sophisticated terminology impresses no one if they cannot understand it. I have successfully dealt with all sorts of customers. I have worked with other professionals in various types of business relationships and as part of a team.

Organization and Time Management: I can successfully manage multiple jobs with changing priorities and deadlines. I like to keep things organized and work efficiently.
