Academic Success Catalyst Program Enrolling Now!

My writing's already taken a step forward! - ASCP Participant after just one call

The ASCP is for graduate students, postdocs, junior faculty, and other junior academic researchers who would like to:

Academic Success Catalyst Program• get more productive in their writing and other work
• finish their thesis, papers, or other projects
• have an easier time finding a job
• have better relationships at work and at home, and
• be more strategic and effective in building their career.

Not to mention...feel less stressed, more optimistic, more revitalized, and more connected with their work!

The ASCP is a series of weekly phone sessions designed to help you achieve all of the above, and more. Each week we'll have a fun, information-packed, and supportive group teleconference in which:

(a) I'll give a 10-15 minute overview of one topic. About 3/4 of the calls will deal with topics related to boosting your writing and other productivity; the remainder will be on career-building skills including networking, presenting, and working effectively with mentors.

(b) Each participant will then get to ask a question or share a situation they're facing, which the group will discuss for up to ten minutes.

That's it! A weekly boost of inspiration, information, support, and empowerment! Participants will also be encouraged to stay in touch with each other between calls for even more support.

I am currently offering afternoon and evening call times, and the fee is $125 per four-call series, payable in advance. All participants will get a free e-copy of my book, The 7 Secrets of the Prolific, and are advised to review it prior to starting.

Terms and conditions listed below. To enroll, PayPal $125 to




Academic Success Catalyst Program Terms and Conditions:

*Participation is entirely at my discretion. Reasons I might decline someone include: wrong job type (e.g., you're a senior academic, or not an academic); competitive concerns (you're in too close competition with a current participant); or you're not a fit with the program format or goals.

*I also reserve the right to end your participation at any time and for any reason, including that I don't think you're behaving productively on calls. If I do end your participation, I will refund the unused portion of your payment only, minus PayPal or other fees.

*Confidentiality is a big concern for all ASCP members. Participants have the option of not using their last names or identifying their institutions during calls, although it will be helpful if you share the type of institution you're at (e.g., large research university, small liberal arts college). All participants will be required to affirm that they will NEVER share any of the contents of calls, or any details about any of the callers, with anyone.

Breach of confidentiality is grounds for immediate termination from the program, with no refund given.

*Those who wish to exchange emails with the group may do so (and I'll compile and distribute the email list) but this is entirely optional.

*Refunds will be given *only* if requested within 48 hours of the first call, in which case a 100% refund (minus PayPal or other fees) will be given. Missed calls are not refundable.

*All program terms and conditions subject to change without notice.
