 I started how different this would be from my previous writing work. I can’t wait to start my ghostwriting career!
 applying outside-the-box—the whole process of deconstructing and then reconstructing not only sets us apart from everyone else, it makes my day-to-day life better!
 absorb-still doing that about some things, so I appreciate that you explained it from the beginning.
 know, though, that I didn’t know enough to take someone’s money to write their book. Now I do.
 as the information about the book industry.
 didn’t know, but thought you knew, but actually need to know to become a ghostwriter. I cannot fully express to you my gratitude for this program, your team, and all of your advice. Your willingness to share what you’ve learned—all of it—as well as your genuine desire to see your students succeed is really what sets this course apart. Prior to taking this course, I had been working on staff for an author for years. I didn’t realize I was ghostwriting in its most basic form. When I realized I had a skill to find and develop the gold in manuscripts, I took some side jobs ghostwriting as a freelance… I wasn’t making any money. I didn’t know what my skill was worth. I didn’t know that I knew next to nothing about my skill. I didn’t know that I am the gold. Last June, in the Introduction to Ghostwriting Course you had a video on Mindset Transitions. That video changed everything for me. In the video, you asked, “Envision your idea life 10 or 15 years from now, and think about what you have to do differently to reach that goal.” I knew in that moment I needed to recognize my value and quit my job. It was a big risk for our family, but in January 2020 I quit my job and set my sights on my ghostwriting career. This course gave me the confidence to do that. Thank you.
 that’s pretty neat. I used to be a very lazy thinker, and everything was either black or white. Now I’m deep into the grey and I love knowing that there are so many possible outcomes.
 to stretch SO MUCH… from creating a manuscript template to writing fiction. I have never asked myself to attempt something and dare to not do it perfectly. And as a result, I have NEVER learned so much in such a short time. Thank you for being so committed to my ghostwriting career. I’ve worked in publishing for ages, and I learn something each week in this course. Your commitment comes through in every class. And through Kata, too. He is incredible. I am so HAPPY with everything I am learning in our course! I am USING IT! When the theory of finding the gold *dropped*, I was a little bit stunned. At first I beat up on myself for not getting it all on my own. Then I was excited, because I see the possibilities! It has been a long time since I have learned something truly, completely new and different.
 of having a long-term career in ghostwriting seems much more attainable. It’s not that I didn’t believe I could make it work before, but it definitely feels different to be working on a real book for a real client. Without your class, I don’t think this would be happening.
 I call myself my first ghostwriting client, which helps me maintain objectivity. I am thrilled to have these new skills at hand, giving me the opportunity to finish this project:) I know why I was stuck before too-- it was overwritten (right foot, left foot) and the structure was cumbersome,. But I didn't know how to fix it. I just kept line editing the monster, suspecting all the while that it wasn't enough. So, thank you Claudia, Sabriga, Liv, and Kata, for helping me understand this process so much better!
 I appreciate you answering so patiently what I know is in the lesson, but I like to hear your take. There's always helpful, added nuance. Finally, I wanted to thank you for the program. I've learned so much, been through so many mindset transitions (still transitioning!!). We're not done yet, but I wanted to say, I appreciate all the effort you and your team made in formalizing what for you is second nature. THANK YOU!
 work. Nor would I have known how to do the writing justice. So this is a great learning experience--theory in practice. The author ticks all the boxes: he does not read, cannot write cohesively, has no vision beyond wanting to write a book, thinks we can co-write and make money from sales. Ha! Tempting as it is to sharpen my teeth on a real job, after careful analysis, I don't think I'm taking this one! Thanks guys!
 go with the writing/rewriting. So as a student, who every week learns more, by the time I got the MLE, esp. v2, I had more understanding and to draw from -- leading me to re-envision the assignment. Anyway, that's been my experience. Thanks for last week's class. It was amazing! (at least the first 50 minutes!) Take care.
 worth and doing way more than I ever agreed to do. I stood calm and strong—she would have signed for $25,000 and my shopping the book for her. Then she offered to pay me $15,000 to write part of the book. I said NO (though I could really use the money). The conversation started off very emotional on her part. By the end, she was calm, thoughtful and thanking me.
 I listened, I thought of the latest glitch with XXXX and how you not only handled it, but talked about it. And the Elliott’s Wave/metaphysics part is not only hopeful, but another mindset transition for those who want to accept it. I kept thinking, “This is what a good mother (could be any parent, but I thought mother) does—reassures, encourages, instills hope along with objectivity.” Someday I hope we have time over coffee and gnosh for you to tell me the story of how you changed the course I took in 2012 to this deep, thorough, exclusive, and fun version. An amazing accomplishment, Claudia—a perfect reflection of your passion, dedication, and ethics. Lucky me to be the beneficiary of all of it and you!
 to find the gold in everything! I appreciated the generous advice and honesty, and how the course fully prepares us to hit the ground running on our ghostwriting career. I was expecting an immersive, hands-on skill building course and the program certainly delivered.
 Line Editing into my process with current clients, to name a few. The GPDP isn’t like any course or program I’ve taken before. From week one, Claudia and Co. emphasized utility over theory. In other words, the distance from learning to earning is happily short… I’m blown away by the abundant publishing industry knowledge the GPDP offers.
 if I had to choose among them all, I’d choose this program any day of the week and twice on Sunday. That it achieves all its ambitious goals is an accomplishment in itself. That it does so in the most real, inspirational, and positive ways possible is yet another.
 to this level. While they were fantastic in many ways, they can’t hold a candle to this course.
 of devalued content. And here you are, doing this. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to be here! Also, it seems fitting that line editing falls to ghostwriters since line editors, at least in newspapers and magazines, were always the invisible part of the process of producing polished prose.
 authoring. Then I finally decided to dive in, but even then I worried I was going too far with all the cuts and the merging of different chapters. Now after reviewing your feedback, it sounds like I didn’t go far enough! Lol. But with your notes, I’m confident the second pass will be stronger. I’m eager to get in there and have at it again. Thanks again for your comments.
 fill. I will never forget you saying, “You’re not an employee.” It took a few times but, By George, I think I’ve got it. Thank you, Claudia. The course was excellent.
 one-of-a-kind workshop, information you can’t get anywhere else. A career-maker.
 interaction would be lost. I can’t imagine you in a horrid post-WWII classroom on an overhead projector.
 to start a ghostwriting business than I ever thought I would.
 to learn on your own in months, and walk away as one of the few professionally certified ghostwriters in the world.
 about future bookings! ¶ I have already asked some of the folks I work with as editors to take it so that we can have a shared vocabulary and outlook. I would tell them that the processes simplify the work and clarify the expectations of clients (even if they don’t know it) and the industry.
 I publish my own books.
 start my own business as a certified ghostwriter. P.S. There's no referral fee! I just loved this program and think it's perfect for those of us with advanced degrees and military lifestyle.
 a lifetime of meaningful connection. I’ve come to realize that’s what I really want in my work. I don’t want to spend six weeks with a client rushing through some project their boss threw on their plate. I want to spend six months with a client, getting to know them as a person, and helping them create something that will change their life and the lives of possibly hundreds or thousands. Yes, ghostwriting pays better too, and the gigs last longer (both bonuses) but it’s really the work that has me most energized. If you need to create and want to help people, ghostwriting is a wonderful career. And now that I’m on my way to becoming a full-time professional ghostwriter I feel for the first time that I’m ready to go all in, and it’s the right choice. I want this life. Thank you for helping me get here.
 verbal discussions. ¶ I feel more prepared to start a ghostwriting business than I ever thought I would.
