One of the more
frequent questions I'm asked about doing handwriting analysis is, "What
got you into this?"
The first emotion
was just pure CURIOSITY about myself and how I can change my life. But
the thing that turned it from a hobby into a passion was the money.
The (shallow) truth is, I started seriously studying the science when
I realized I could earn $100 an hour - or more.
Now, I'm sure there
are lots of other jobs that pay as well. Brain surgeons, for example,
make some pretty good dough. But I eliminated that from my job prospects
long ago. It is very gratifying to be a handwriting expert: the insight
into people, the thrill of successfully entertaining, clients' amazement
at results, and the joy of helping others improve their lives.
But better yet,
I make GREAT money doing it. It's not just me - all of our students
have the same opportunity to earn money - and they are!
