As I stated in my last post, I am enrolled in the Work at Home School. I am LOVING it! I wasn’t sure when I first heard about it, but they had a week-long Summit where different instructors from the school were interviewed by Caitlin Pyle. She is the person who put this all together for us and is also an instructor for the school. She is also the mastermind behind Proofread Anywhere. This is a successful blog as well as exceptional training to become either a general proofreader or a transcription proofreader.
By instructor, I mean that all of these people have their own classes that they teach and sell on their websites. Caitlin just puts them all together and made them all available in one place. There is also a massive discount for buying them through the school instead of individual classes.
What WAHS is Like
The classes come in three tiers.
- Curious is the lowest tier, it is for those who would just like to test the waters and get some information about working from home.
- The Confident package is next, it includes everything in the Curious package as well as many more classes. It is for those people who know they want to work from home.
- Committed is the highest tier, this includes everything in the other two tiers as well as some very high dollar classes. It is for those of us who know that we want to work from home and run our own business.
Committed is the one I went with, and I don’t regret it for a minute. I did the math on all of the classes out of the packages that I wanted to take. The total came to a whopping $3806.00! Needless to say, I did not pay near that much. At the time I started, I paid $697.00 for the whole thing.
I have taken several of the classes so far. Of course, I am only taking one or two at a time and I am going through several units a day. If you actually do the action steps as you go then you don’t have time for fear to get in your way. I am learning so much and I have been implementing what I am being taught. Even if I’m scared, even if I’m not sure I am doing it anyway. These people have all been where I am and they know how to get to where they are.
Believe me. I am not the type of person who will blindly follow anyone but these people are all who I want to be when I grow up, so follow them I will. I want to do what they do and I want to have the lives they have. Who doesn’t want the freedom that their jobs afford them? Most importantly, I am willing to work for it.
Unfortunately, the website states that the school is closed for now but it is reopening this Spring. There is not a firm date listed, but there is a place to sign up for the waiting list. I believe that after that the plan is to open at the first of the year every year. Since this is the very first of the school I do not have all of the information. I am so excited to be one of the firsts!!
I will be doing write-ups about the classes I take. Reviews, if you will. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything so far. There have even been a couple that has made me uncomfortable with the action steps that we need to take. I did them though. Anything worth doing should scare you a little. If not, then you are not reaching high enough.
Please go to workathomeschool.com to get on the waiting list. You have to start somewhere.
