“I made almost HALF of my yearly salary as a school leader in Australia, in just a few weeks! I now have time to focus on building my business while still having plenty of time for my family. A few years ago this was a dream. But now, thanks to Amy… it’s my reality!”

Ever since I was a little girl, I knew that I wanted my own business. I am an entrepreneur at heart with a strong drive for independence.
But it wasn’t until later in my life, after I already had an established career as a schoolteacher, that I was able to go after this dream.
While teaching, I realized that many of my peers were struggling to teach their students how to read. Supporting other teachers became my greater mission, and I was inspired to start a blog offering teachers equal access to evidence-based reading instruction.
So, I went for it!
After awhile I realized this might be my ticket to becoming an entrepreneur. I started to see how I could help teachers on a larger scale while also having the freedom to leave my school-based job and stay home with my children.
This is when I began to dabble in the idea that my blog could be my business.
I started looking around for resources to help me, and that’s when I found Amy’s podcast. I LOVED what she was teaching, but I played it small for quite a while and just used the podcast for ideas and inspiration.
Two years of not making much progress went by, and I finally decided that if I wanted to reach my goals and turn my side hustle into a full-time gig, I needed to go all in and invest in Digital Course Academy.
So, I did!
I listened to every strategy Amy taught… and implemented it. It helped that her course is so easy to follow and it’s always clear as to what next best action steps to take. So I followed DCA step-by-step and created my 12-week course called “Reading Success in the First Year of School.”
My clear and practical approach shows teachers how to fully implement the science of reading in order to get EVERY child in the classroom reading without worksheets, guessing, or tears!
My first launch goal was to enroll 85 teachers in my course, but I ended up with over 200 signups and closed my cart with $63,000 AUD in sales!
(For perspective into how that impacts my life: I made almost HALF of my yearly salary as a school leader in just a few weeks!)
I now have time to focus on building my business while still having plenty of time for my family. A few years ago this was a dream. But now, thanks to Amy… it’s my reality!
DCA also gave me a gift I never expected. With Amy’s help, I’ve learned to overcome my self-limiting beliefs about money, and now I’m excited to set even bigger goals for my next launch!
Thanks, Amy and DCA! Not only have you changed my life, but you’re also helping to change the lives of teachers and students around the world, too!
Update: I have launched another course this year and closed the cart at $82 000! Next stop? $100k launch!

My very first launch generated 11,500 euros (over $13,000 USD), and I grew my email list from zero to 2,000 people!
Instead of it taking me multiple launches over 18 months to make 5 figures, DCA helped me make 5-figures in one launch!
Before working with Amy, it was difficult to create a truly impactful program to help teachers succeed… But after working with Amy, we have seen incredible transformations for the teachers who are taking the program and more importantly for their students.
