What Students are Saying:


"Claudia doubled her pay, works half the time, and gained the flexibility her family needs"

"When I started Emily’s course, I was an underemployed and underpaid property manager making $14/hr in Miami.

My original goal was to replace at least half of that income. What I achieved was more than I had ever expected. Now, I charge $30-35/hr, work half of the time I did in my 9-5, have a schedule that moves around my family’s needs, and get to pick who I want to work with.

My only regret is not having started sooner.

—Claudia Bretz

former property manager, engineer, milspouse and now digital marketing assistant

Stephanie is making an extra 2k a month while homeschooling

"My initial goal was to make $1,000 a month. With the course, I reached my goal within 3 months and have been consistently hitting $2k months for over a year. As a homeschooling mom, balancing work and family life is top priority and Emily's program has helped me make it happen."


—Stephanie Cutter

homeschooling stay-at-home mom + digital marketing assistant

"I was able to quit teaching and replace my income a year sooner than I thought"

"I had a goal when I started Emily's Crash Course to transition from teaching into working for myself from home as a digital marketing VA.

My hope was to accomplish this by the end of the 20/21 school year. However, due to the utter fabulousness of all that I've learned and the job ops posted in this group, I am accomplishing that goal one year early! I will get to work from home (even after the current shelter in place) and have a flexible schedule which will allow me more time with my husband and three sweet kiddos.

I am thrilled beyond words - and as grateful as I can be!! We unicorns are pretty magical after all 🦄🥰 "
