I’ve been asked several times by prospective students for reassurance they will be able to make money after taking my transcript proofreading course. They don’t want to invest hundreds of dollars in something if they’re not sure they’ll be able to recoup their investment (although millions of people spend thousands of dollars on a college degree all the time without such reassurance, but that’s another story for another day ;-)). I’ve also been asked a few times to prove I’m not the exception to the rule. There’s a thought that most people won’t actually make any money, even though many successful students have (and they make a good chunk despite a lack of an English degree, without prior proofreading experience, and with kids!).
Some folks are also looking for a guarantee of some kind, that if they pay for the course, they’ll make money guaranteed. I don’t guarantee that. I never will. And here’s why: I won’t guarantee students will make money because each student’s success depends 100% upon the student taking action, not my taking action for them. If someone takes the course then does nothing with the action plan, or they give up because it’s too hard, of course I can’t guarantee income from an obvious failure to act.
But all that said, I am proud to say NO, I am not the exception, and while I cannot guarantee everyone will have the same results I’ve had because there are so many variables, my students themselves are all the evidence necessary to strongly indicate that my transcript proofreading course truly is the perfect roadmap to help you earn income by proofreading transcripts for court reporters.
Meet Alicia. Alicia is a mother of two, works a full-time job in the city, and has no prior proofreading experience, and does not have an English degree. Being a parent, working a full-time job, not having an English degree, and not having prior proofreading experience are the top four objections/doubts/excuses I get from hundreds of prospective students thinking about enrolling in Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice™.
Just this morning (April 14, 2015), Alicia voluntarily posted in our student group on Facebook about her success in her very first month as a proofreader. She has three clients. It took her between one and two months to complete the course, and about a month to get her first client.
Here’s Alicia’s post:
Alicia made over $1100 in her first month, despite the lack of English degree, despite the full-time job, despite the two kids, and despite the lack of prior proofreading experience.
So how did Alicia do it?
First, she believed in herself. She knew she had an eagle eye, knew she was a hard worker, and she was willing to put in the time and effort it took to learn a new skill so she could pay off debt and live in financial freedom. Then, she enrolled in the course. She worked through all the material to gain confidence in her skills. She followed the instructions to get clients. And she hustled. Alicia made it happen.
Know this: if you are a hardworking, dedicated eagle eye who believes in themselves, the only way you can fail is if you just give up… or if you never start at all. Alicia knew going in this course was the real deal, no gimmicks, and no shortcuts. She knew she was going to have to work. She knew that success wouldn’t come overnight. Success does come little by little, though, with diligence and dedication, and her first $1100 in just a month is sheer proof.
I’ll be interviewing Alicia on video in the very near future and she’ll be able to share with us more about how she hustled and made it happen 🙂 I can’t wait to chat with her. As soon as I have the video, I’ll add it to this FAQ.
What do you think about Alicia’s success? Are you inspired? A little intimidated? Doubtful? Excited for your own potential success? Let me know in the comments!
