Day to Day

I spend a majority of my time working with academic scholars as a coach, a mentor, an editor, and publisher to help them complete their doctoral journey, as well as publish their writings as a result of their doctoral journey.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Strong social and communication skills are needed to connect with my clients. I need to listen carefully to their needs to design a personalized program to serve their goals of degree completion as well as publication of their findings to share their story with the world.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

The first step is the ability to communicate well and connect with people. Marketing is about either creating a need or serving a need to ensure that your business serves others well.

The Noise I Shed

From Teachers:

"Your publishing model won't work as it is too different."

Just keep putting one foot in front of the other to never stop trying. My first book says it all: Fail Faster, Succeed Sooner. Find someone else who has done what you want to do successfully and hire them to coach you.

Challenges I Overcame

Financial
Financial

Most people think you need money to start a business in the form of a loan. No. I started without having ANY loans. Ask me how.

Learning Issues
Learning Issues

I am the first doctoral scholar in the family. Blazing a trail is part of being a pioneer in learning. I also created my own strategies: Technology That Tutors combining the benefits of a blog with video to help teach my students and clients.
