This picture was taken during my grad school years. The sweet bundle I am holding in my arms is the reason why I was able to propose, write, and defend my dissertation in one year...and still smile.
I had no choice but to be organized and make every minute of the day count. I earned my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University. I also served as a training and education manager for Hugo Boss, the well-known fashion company, for three years prior to my doctoral studies. I conducted motivational seminars in five different languages throughout the world and thus interacted with a wide spectrum of people.
So why me as your dissertation coach?
A happily married, famous psychologist, Dr. Ellen Kreidman, who has enabled numerous couples to maintain romance in their relationships, was once asked why people should listen to her. Her reply was that if you want to make money you get advice from someone who has accumulated wealth, so if you want to have a successful relationship you ask for advice from someone who has had a longstanding, happy marriage. Thus, since I was able to complete my dissertation in a year, while also having a little daughter, I have invaluable insights to share about organization, time management and motivation.
I did it. You can do it, too. Let there be no doubt.
