Isn’t It Time to Finish Your Ph.D.?

As your dissertation coach, I have one goal:  To help you get back on track with your research and writing, graduate and move on to the next phase of your life.

Achieving your doctorate opens up new career opportunities, increases earnings and serves as the culmination of a life-long personal goal. You deserve to kick-start your progress and complete your doctorate once and for all. Yes, your rewards are out there, waiting for you to claim them.

I’ve been there myself as a grad student. You’re frustrated, stalled out and unsure of how to move forward. Perhaps you’re even considering giving up on the dream of graduating with the coveted “Dr.” in front of your name. (Undeniably, A.B.D. just doesn’t have the same cache and won’t open the same doors.)

With a 50% drop out rate, the tragic reality is that many grad students never complete their dissertations and graduate. DON’T BE A STATISTIC. Dissertation help is a game-changer.
