    I just wanted to let you know your articles have really helped me to get over my fears and go to school. I’m currently working for a judge that suggested I become a court reporter. I was having trouble figuring out what was my passion. I love typing and being in court hearing the different cases. So, I am looking into going to school at CCR.EDU online program. I have talk to a freelance and official reporter and they gave me good advice. I am so scared of failing but I want to do this so badly. I have never been a great student and I suck at punctuation but I know I will be more focused now that I am older and I need to do this for me and my daughter. Since I have been reading your articles it has motivated me even more to start and finally accomplish a goal in my life, and I know I will love going to a dream job. Thank you for all the words of encouragement and stories from others. I am going to be one of these people one day telling my stories.

    I have been a court reporter for 17 years and have taken five years off. I would like to become a CART writer, and I need to work on my speed…to pass the RPR and CART test. I would like your input on what would be most beneficial for me at this time.

    Hi Monette!
    I am a veteran court reporter and would like to know if you could help me become a CART writer for the deaf and hearing impaired college students. Could you email info. and pricing, as well.

    Thank you,
