  • You don’t have AN ACCOUNTABILITY METHOD THAT WORKS (and isn't boring and complicated)
  • YOU DON'T STAND OUT from other coaches in your niche
  • It’s DIFFICULT TO SELL clients into your programs and services, and they DON'T REFER others
  • You can’t KEEP YOUR CLIENTS long enough to reach their goals

    Listen to this amazing testimonial from Farida Akadiri, a participant in The Online Group Success System in April/ May of this year. She has earned the equivalent of $25,000 in the past 6 weeks, just following what I taught and creating online Get-It-Done Groups in Finish Agent. Discover exactly how she did it! (She joined me live on Tuesday, June 20, from Paris.)

    I’m Gina Hiatt, Creator of The Online Group Success System™, Finish Agent® Software, Academic Ladder® Inc, and the Academic Writing Club™

    I earned $455,000 last year in passive recurring income from running online groups in just one business, and you can too!

    After years of coaching academics, I saw first-hand the challenges that graduate students and faculty have in completing long-term writing projects, suffering from procrastination, and lack of structure.  In my own Ph.D. studies, I was in the same boat, and I struggled, too!

    That’s why I saw a need and an opportunity to create online accountability and support groups. So I started Academic Ladder® Inc. (the company), the Academic Writing Club (the groups, membership site, and software), and eventually Finish Agent® (the software I built for you, so you could do the same!) to support the groups.

    Testimonial from a grateful licensee

    CLICK on the image to listen to this amazing testimonial from Jenna Avery, a Finish Agent licensee, writing motivation coach and screenwriter - a real screenwriter with writers from all around the world!

    Jenna shares it was an easy yes and a “triple win” when she saw how Finish Agent works and how she could create her own online Get-It-Done Group in Finish Agent for writers. Discover how Jenna leveraged the power of Finish Agent not only to improve her own business, but also to help other coaches in the most gratifying way based on daily implementation. She has loved helping her clients become successful in writing and also learn new lifetime success habits.

    ~Jenna Avery, Founder of Called to Write Circle.

    • Do I have to attend the LIVE webinars?

      While we encourage you to attend the live webinars, so you can stay on pace with the program, have the opportunity to ask questions, and get laser coaching, it’s completely fine to listen to the recordings, which will be made available 1-2 days following the live webinar.  You can also ask questions and get help in your Finish Agent® group. 

    • When can I start using Finish Agent® to set up my own groups?

      You will receive your own lifetime Finish Agent® license in week 5 of the course, after you’ve experienced 4 weeks as a student in a Finish Agent® group, so you can understand the full experience before you start your own groups.

      Please note, even though your will receive the license in week 5, if you are on a payment plan and don’t complete your payments, your Finish Agent® license will be suspended (any groups you are running will be put on hold) until all payments are made.

    • I already have a membership site and content delivery platform that I use. Do I need Finish Agent®? Will Finish Agent® integrate with it?

      You can keep your current membership software for the content delivery piece and add Finish Agent® for the accountability piece. You can create a tab in your membership site that links to Finish Agent® so it feels cohesive from the client experience.

      Or you may find Finish Agent® has all of the features and benefits you need to run your online community and groups, and you may end up transferring over to it completely to streamline and save money. It’s up to you!

    • I’m not far enough along in building my business to start a group. What will I learn?

      It’s never too soon to take this program! In fact, you’ll be better off because you can design your business right from the start. Your goals for this class will vary depending on where you are in your business.  If you’re more of a beginner, this class will show you a model that you can aim for, and equip you with all that you need to run groups in Finish Agent®.  We can’t give you a big mailing list, though! The good thing is that you, yourself, will be learning good daily habits for building your business.  Work in your small group to create goals that are realistic and meaningful to you, and you will get a lot out of this program.

    • Are there additional fees?

      Yes.  Your lifetime Finish Agent® license will be free, but you will pay a minimal user fee for each client in the software. (This is industry standard for this type of software.)  The current rate is $10 per client per 4 weeks they are in Finish Agent®. However, it actually costs you nothing if you include this fee in what you charge your clients. That way clients cover their own fees.

      The Online Group Success System™ is so comprehensive that most will not feel the need for additional help.  However, we have additional coaching and tech support available for an additional fee, should you want it. Please inquire.

    • You’ve demonstrated success within academia, but will The Online Group Success System™ work for me?

      Yes! Our methodologies are based on psychology, communication, leadership, and business – universal principles – which can be applied to any industry or topic. Our licensees have proven that this works in diverse fields, including medical, spiritual, health and wellness, and business development.

    • I like the idea of building this kind of business, but I don’t want to do the actual group coaching. Should I still do this?

      Yes! We will teach you how to hire, train, and manage a team of coaches who can do the coaching for you.  That’s how you can grow passive income and only participate in the things you want to do.

    • How much time do I need to invest each week?

      You should budget a minimum of 2.5 hours per week for 6 weeks for:
      o    Weekly 90-minute live webinar (or listen to the recording).
      o    Participate 15 min. a day, 4 – 5 days a week, in your online group.

      In addition to the above, you’ll choose how much time you want to invest in working on your own business goals in Finish Agent®.  The important factor is sustainable, consistent action (daily or at least 4-5 times per week).  It’s better to choose a smaller amount of time you can commit to without fail (and then do more if you choose) rather than to commit to a larger amount of time that may be unsustainable.  This is the key to healthy habits and goal achievement! You will do this, and you will teach your clients to do the same.

    Your Investment in The Online Group Success System™ will quickly pay for itself.

    What is This Software all About?  

    Finish Agent® Features at a Glance

    DAILY PROGRESS GRID:  This a unique and powerful feature that only Finish Agent provides.  Help your clients build and maintain a habit of daily work or practice, by providing progress tracking, accountability, and structure. You'll be able to see at a glance the progress of each group member.  You’ll know instantly which members are active and which members are struggling and need more help.

    DAILY COACHING QUESTIONS: You will create your own  questions, which your clients answer each day when they check in. These questions can remain the same forever.  I will teach you the logic and psychology of it.  This simple but powerful process has clients stick to their goals, log their actions, and reflect on their progress, giving them clarity of purpose and make sure they keep on taking those small but important actions.  The whole small group can read their responses and then comment.

    COACH AND PEER SUPPORT: This is the heart of the Finish Agent system.  Because people can interact over each other's actions, thoughts and feelings from THAT DAY, the power of the interaction is heightened.  You'll be surprised at the level of closeness that these online groups achieve. Coaches and fellow small group members read each others’ responses and offer supportive, encouragement, and help in being resilient. They keep each other motivated, help them push through obstacles, and stay on track.

    DISCUSSION FORUMS: You and your clients can make announcements, upload documents, create and organize group discussions.  Larger topics that get started in the Progress Log can be shared and expanded.  This increases engagement and community building.  You can have a forums for each of your programs, and also one for each of the smaller groups within each program.

    LIVE CHAT:  A live chat feature— perfect for coach-hosted real-time discussions, tip sharing sessions, group challenges, and more! As with the discussion forums, you can have a chat for each of your programs, and also for each of the small groups within each program. There is also a private chat option, and a place to find out if a certain group member or program member is online.

    GRAPHS:  Graphs are automatically generated (for each individual and for each group) based on the type of data you’re collecting, (for example, # of minutes spent writing, number of calories, daily mood ratings on a 1-10 scale, etc.) and will help you track each client’s progress and the overall progress of your group.  It’s visually impactful — your clients will be amazed at how much they accomplish as a member of your community!  You can select line, bar or pie charts, and you can have cumulative or daily progress graphs.

    CLIENT PROFILES & GOALS: A personal space where each client can share information about themselves and list their goals for each program session. Clients can get to know the other members of their community, while you can tailor your feedback according to their needs. Note that people can assign themselves a "nickname" and be anonymous if they wish.

    CUSTOM CONTENT AREAS: Special areas to enter ALL the information for your program and classes. Embed videos, mp3s, PDFs, class schedules, and more when and where you need them. Tabs, sub-tabs and drop-down modules allow a huge choice in displaying your content.  Drip content is also available. If you have your content hosted elsewhere, just link to it from here.

    CUSTOM BRANDED SITE: Easily customize your Finish Agent® site with your own banner, colors, content, tab labels and some tab icons! You can even choose your own text and hyperlink colors, making an integrated look. Make it look just like your own site, or create a whole new brand.  On the left are three headings as examples.
