She earned USD 214K per annum in her previous job. Her new salary is USD 293K per annum, which is a 37% increase, i.e., USD 79K per annum and USD 6.6K per month, from her old salary.
The enrollment cost for the Guaranteed Success Program was only USD 5,990 + 5% of her existing salary, i.e., USD 16.69K (USD 5.99K + 10.7K). This means she earned back her investment in less than three months (USD 6.6K per month increment).
Moreover, her first-year return on investment is approx 473% before tax ([293K – 214K]/16.698K * 100 = 473%).
If she decides to stay in the same role for the next five years, she will have an extra income of USD 395K (USD 79K*5), assuming she doesn’t get any increments in those five years.
In addition to the above monetary gains, Helen will be working for one of her employers of choice, one of the fastest-growing tech start-ups. Among other benefits, she has the flexibility to work from anywhere at least 3 days a week, paid time off to volunteer, and personal wellness programs. Winning!
