Another Successful Dissertation Client!

By Dr. Sheila Pope

My SECOND dissertation client called me to share her exciting news: her dissertation was approved by her committee and it has been sent to her school for final approval!

I have coached my client through stressful times and edited her work for the last year. I tell my clients, “I am here until the end”. Sometimes it takes a while for the end to arrive. I had the honor to edit her proposal, her ethics paper, her Capstone project, and her final Capstone Report!

Trust is Required
I am glad my client trusted me to help her accomplish her goal. She was not always happy with my feedback, but she listened and respected my knowledge of Capella’s process. We spent a great deal of time via the phone and I will miss her, but I look forward to working with her in other professional endeavors.

Capella’s Capstone Project
Capella University has cut down the time it takes to earn a doctorate in Education. My client contracted my services in September 2017 when she was ready to write. I am proud of her! I have TWO clients preparing to defend this month!

Two Opening!
I have openings for two more Dissertation Clients. I can only take a couple at a time. I stay until the end. I provide clients with several opportunities to talk with me via phone and email. I thoroughly edit and return work with feedback to help clients secure their mentor’s approval. I coach clients through the creative process and through conquering milestones. I celebrate their success like it was my own. I love this part of coaching. Getting the phone call makes my day!

Accomplishments in 2017

It has been a year since I went into full-time entrepreneurship. During my first year, I focused on getting all of the legal stuff and paperwork in place. I development my faith level. I was preparing mentally and spiritually to never return to traditional employment. I was letting go of past battles and preparing to experience new success. In August 2017, I stepped out and secured office spaces for The Resource Center, Dr. Pope’s STEM and Liberal Arts Academy 501c3, and The Next Move Re-entry Program 501c3. I took my dream from my home office to a new destination! I went from working part-time on my business to dedicating my full attention to my businesses. I trusted God to do more than I could think or ask.

Focus for 2018

This year, my focus is on cultivating partnerships, developing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), and securing joint ventures with my companies, The Resource Center, The Next Move Re-entry Program, and Dr. Pope’s STEM and Liberal Arts Academy to provide more services so each business can grow financially. I am excited to announce that I have signed my first joint venture with LEAP72!
Joint Partnerships

 

Joint Venture with LEAP72

The Resource Center and LEAP72 are working and planning together to bring services, products and professional development to support female entrepreneurs who are making Boss moves. I founded a Facebook group called Boss Ladies. We are a community women (some men too) who owns their own businesses and/or have founded nonprofits. We are collaborating and supporting each other’s successes and missteps. With this joint venture, we plan to help these entrepreneurs and many others reach a new level of success. I look forward to doing great things with Khufere Qhamata, founder of LEAP72, and a constant source of advice and wisdom. He is also the founder of SMAART Incubator, an awesome organization that supports and helps African-American owned startups. Keep your eyes peeled to see some of the results of our partnership. We are going to invest and improve other start-ups and make a profit in the process.
