Cheers to new beginnings
After bouncing all my ideas and scenarios off my hubby and sister, I have decided on the Court Reporting at Home program.
I bought the program and the WAVE writer to the tune of $5650.00
I called (again) and the nice gentleman on the other line (Steven) talked me off the edge.
I over think things sometimes, okay, almost all the time. I am a detail person, what can I say?
So, now instead on nerves, I feel excited to start!
CRAH now offers the PROcat Blaze. (Another $300) The student version of the Impression.
Although it does have a touch screen and tilting tripod, I still went with the Wave. The Wave is the student version of the Diamante. The same machine my sister has. I thought it would be best, since she will be helping me out from time to time.
So far my impression is that this program will work for those who have the five D's
- DESIRE – You must have a strong, solid desire to become a court reporter.
- DETERMINATION – You must be a persistent and determined individual who lets nothing stand in your way of accomplishing your goals of becoming a court reporter.
- DEDICATION – You must be dedicated enough to put forth the time and effort required to accomplish your goals of becoming a court reporter.
- DISCIPLINE – You must have enough motivation and self discipline to make your career goals a priority.
- DESERVE – If you possess the above attributes, then you must be a winner; so you deserve the rewards of being a successful court reporter.
I have read that no matter what theory you learn, learn it frontwards, backwards and inside out.
I do believe that Stenomaster is an excellent theory, but the program was just too expensive and they just do not have a complete program like CRAH. Selfstudycourtreporting.com was sold to this lady, it was not through Mark. Plus, his new books will be coming out shortly, so who knows when this gal will get the new copies. I will probably join his Magnum Steno Club at some point. If I need help with speed building. I do not doubt his talent. His wife informed me that this was for more advanced students, not those fresh out of theory.
