Why You Should Finish Your Dissertation and Why Others Don't Make it

Greetings Doctoral Candidate,

Congratulations on making it this far in your educational career!

Are you currently working on a dissertation or approaching the start of dissertation courses? If so, then you are in the right place.

U.S. News & World Report noted that people with doctoral degrees will earn $2 million+ more than those holding bachelors degrees over their lifetime! In fact, holding a doctoral degree still remains one of the most prestigious academic distinctions in the world.

Yet, only about half of doctoral students actually obtain it, so the total number of terminally degreed individuals in the United States sits at less than 1%. Why is this?

According to the PhD Completion Project, the latest completion rates for doctoral students entering a program and finishing within 7 years are between 55% and 64%, depending on the field. This same source reported that over 50,000 students drop out of their doctorate program each year!


  • Lack of proper mentoring and support
  • Feelings of aimlessness and exhaustion
  • Lack of community
  • Poor relationships with supervisors.

The professional and psychological consequences of remaining in ABD status can be serious and debilitating.

And don't forget the money. Doctoral students who don't finish stand to lose tens of thousands of tuition dollars as well as potential future income.

That's why we developed Dissertation Success Boot Camp - to help propel you forward and position you for the best chance of success in earning your doctorate!

Listed below is information about the boot camp, including a description of activities, agenda, and value.

We look forward to working with you,


Dr. Justin Bateh

Real Success Stories

Dr. Tessa Rivera And How She Finished in 6 months

Dr. Tessa joined our program in December 2016 and defended in August 2017. Her dissertation was titled: Defining Administrative Support: Perceptions and Experiences of Private Secondary School Educators.

From Tessa: Could not have reached this milestone without the support of you and your team, So....Thank You...for everything!!! Your service made this possible and WORTH EVERY DOLLAR INVESTED!

Congratulations Dr. Tessa!

Watch this quick video as Dr. Tessa explains how she utilized our boot camp to finish her dissertation.

As you plan your dissertation goals, take a look at this 3 minute video by a recent graduate, Dr. Shari Merlano.

Dr. Merlano came to us in distress. She had a goal of finishing in December but according to her, that wasn't looking so great. With our coaching and through her hard work, she beat her stated deadline and completed her final defense a month earlier than her goal date!

Watch how Dr. Melano was able to accomplish this (it's only 3 minutes and well worth the time):

Tiffany joined our coaching program last summer (2016).

She had been working on her Doctor of Education degree for nine – yes 9! – years!

She was told that she can't stay in the program forever and has been warned about her lack of progress.

She had cycled through three chairs.

She also has had to deal with real life issues: a marriage, a pregnancy, a birth, medical conditions, and family issues.

After 9 years of struggling, Tiffany reported this progress after working with our team in just the first few months:

In 2 months, I just received notification that my URR approved my proposal draft … I truly wish I would have stumbled across this program years ago. My doctoral journey may have actually been pleasurable and NOT as expensive… I enjoy reading the informative posts and meeting new people! Glad I joined! I believe this community is an excellent resource for doctoral candidates.

Now, we are proud to announce that Tiffany has defended her dissertation and has become Dr. Curry!

Story of Jennifer Collins

"I struggled with believing in my ability to do this lately and it's reassuring to know that I'm not alone. It feels like my committee through the University isn't really on my side and are waiting to see me fail.

Dr.Bill is not like that at all. When I doubt myself, he reminds me that I CAN do this and finish. I'm not a person who quits things so quitting is not an option for me but sometimes the process feels overwhelming. Knowing that Dr.Bill understands my journey and can relate to it, is incredible. The hurdles that I face are less daunting because I know I'm not alone.

It's really helpful when we can share screens and Dr. Bill can walk me through things. (SPSS, Nvivo, Qualtrics, etc.) I've never been taught these programs so having him there to help me is powerful.

I've recommended this program to others and one person has joined this group! It's nice to have the support from the mentors but also from peers. You see the end of this journey even when we can't see the finish line.

This journey isn't just about writing a paper and doing research, it's much more complex. Having support in the journey is critical. He keeps telling me I have everything I need to finish the dissertation. Even when I'm doubting myself, I trust him."

Testimonials From Real Boot Camp Members

A Note On Ethical Boundaries

Please be sure to review our Guidelines and Ethical Boundaries that we expect all clients to follow and that we abide by. We have developed a very respected reputation among students, dissertation chairs, and universities to provide coaching to dissertation students. We will not ever put this reputation at risk.

Is This The Right Program For Me? 

If you are working on a dissertation - regardless of the stage - the answer is YES.

We look for two characteristics when a client begins our boot camp:

Identification of a single goal that you feel you can accomplish.

In other words, are you stuck on the prospectus? Lit review? Data Collection? In an intensive boot camp, you can expect to be able to achieve a very clear and distinct goal - maybe even two or three.

YOU determine these with your coach and we customize our weekly mentoring to your goal.

Are you motivated?

If you do not believe you can succeed, why should we? We know each person is capable, but capability and talent only go so far.

You have to want to finish and want to work with a coach to help you get there.

Our coaching program is designed around YOUR unique status and goals. Regardless of which step you are in within your dissertation stage, your coach will work with you to identify a plan of action for your coaching program along with clear goals and objectives to meet during the program.

We know that you are seeking outside coaching because you may not be getting the support you need, motivation you need, or mentoring that you need – and that’s why you come to us. As the PREMIER dissertation coaching company, our PhD level expert coaches literally “hold your hand” and provide superior service and support to our students.

How Much Can I Expect To Invest In This Program?

Many people ask about “the price” of this program as their first question to us.

While we appreciate that each person must use their financial resources efficiently, if you are looking for a “quick, cheap fix” to your dissertation problems, this program probably isn’t for you.

While our program costs MUCH less than many other programs out there, we are definitely not the “cheapest” program.

Besides, is that what you want anyway?

As you have read on this site, we are a premier coaching program with a full service attitude that provides you with a team of resources available to you during your time with us.

Also, you can tell from the testimonials that students who work with us GET RESULTS. We guarantee it.

As you consider applying to our program, just keep in mind that you WILL need funds to invest in mentoring, coaching, guidance, and a proven blueprint to help you finish your dissertation.

If you are looking to just “spend a couple hundred dollars”, then you may be approaching our program with the wrong mindset.

You need to be ready to work hard and actually implement what you learn from us.

This is not a "write for me" or "do my dissertation" opportunity.

You'll need to be coachable or we won't work well together. If you follow our instructions and get help, you can succeed beyond your wildest dreams.

You can't be unethical or "scammy." There's plenty of other programs for you if that's the case, but this one is for serious and dedicated doctoral students looking to hire a dedicated coach that works with them.

Finally, keep in mind that when you join our program, you will get 100% money-back, risk free guarantee (see note about that on this page). Therefore, you have no risk with this investment.

You can probably expect to invest into our program with about the same amount of funds you would for the average doctoral-level 3 credit course.

Most importantly, if we feel you are a good fit for the program (And vice versa) we will work with you to get you in so you can get the help you need.

We offer various types of payment plans along with financing/loan options for those who are ready to commit.

As you think about that – consider this scenario:

I took a university that is well known, for-profit, online university and looked at their tuition and curriculum.

Here is the breakdown of the investment:

  • Requires 5 dissertation courses at a minimum
  • Each dissertation course is 8 weeks long. That's 40 weeks to work on the dissertation.
  • Each 8 week session cost $2,000. That's $10,000.

So, at a minimum, you are committing about 9-10 months and $10,000 towards your dissertation.

If you finish your dissertation within those 5 courses - you are golden!

You can now begin to reap the future earning potential of having a doctorate (which will more than pay for the $10,000 in dissertation courses).

BUT - we know that MOST people do not finish during the allotted time.

The universities already know this (but that's not for me to judge them on).

It typically takes 12-18 months.

Let's say, you need 5 additional 8 week dissertation sessions.

And let's say, your university charges a "rolling tuition" of $1500.

So that's another 9-10 months, plus another $7500.

So now, you are around $17,500 into your dissertation courses.

Students in our 8 week boot camp typically finish sooner than they would had they continued to work on their own.

Really, all you need to do is finish 8 weeks sooner to break-even on your coaching investment.

Anything sooner than that is pure money in your pocket.

Of course, there are those who have been working on their dissertation for 3, 4, or even 5 years - so enrolling in our boot camp is an absolutely no-brainer as far as funds are concerned.

Make sense?

Go ahead and make this investment in yourself.

Give yourself the best chance by surrounding yourself with a team of experts who work for you to help you finish your dissertation.

And give yourself the best opportunity to finish early (or finish in general) and begin reaping the potential earning capabilities that will make these small investments into your education seem very trivial in the long run.

What Is My Next Step? Read this CAREFULLY.

We have a boot camp start date beginning every Monday!

Option 1 is to Apply For and Schedule a Free Strategy Call.

Applying for and scheduling your strategy call does not commit you to joining the program, however, we ask that you think hard about this decision prior to our call.

Please do not schedule a strategy call unless you are absolutely positive you will pick up the phone when we call. Otherwise, we won't be able to work with you in the future. This option is not for those shopping around or unsure if seeking help is something they want to do.

Option 2 is to Email Us With Questions.

If you are not ready to enroll right now but have questions about our program and are shopping around at various coaching programs, feel free to email us at with your questions. We'll respond quickly and get you the information you need.

If you have reached this point on the page, you basically have 4 options:

Just Leave Things As They Are

To me, this isn't an ideal option, but obviously it's your choice. But if you choose this route, think about how long you've been doing this whole "dissertation thing?" And if you're determined to make a change, how much longer are you willing to wait? If now is not the right time, that's okay. But when will it be...?

Do It All Yourself

That's definitely a valid option, but if you are reading this, is this REALLY the option you want? Maybe you've already tried to do it all yourself...

Focus On Your Current Strategies

Nothing wrong with this option either. For all I know, you may already have had great success with your work and your committee loves your writing and you are smooth sailing. And if you're happy with this, stick with it. If not, you may want to consider the next option...

Use Our EXACT Blueprint

In other words, work with a team that has "been there, done that." Learn from experts who has finished their own doctorates and been a part of multiple success stories from students who graduated, and helped countless others finish their own dissertations. Work with a team of coaches, that provides amazing support, show you what you need to do to progress, provides lightening fast feedback and guidance, and is becomes your foundation as you pursue a life-changing degree.

So...are you in...?  

If so...
