The step-by-step to build an effective, income-producing independent consulting business.
There's no reason to recreate the wheel. You'll receive access to a library of templates for outreach, proposals, pricing, and contracts.
Work with a guide who's built and grown her IC business for 12+ years, and who is fully dedicated to helping independents succeed as business owners.
What you'll achieve:
Immediate access to the independent consultant start-up checklist, including the key fundamentals, tech stack, and mindset to set you up for success. Make sure you have the essential backbone in place.
Gain access to the tool that will help you transform your employee thinking into business owner thinking so you set yourself up for success.
What you'll achieve:
Walk through a methodical, fit-for-purpose process to define your consulting offers, pricing, and essential marketing materials so you stand out.
Define your BDF (business development formula) and execute a simple process to fill your pipeline.
Tailor your step-by-step sales process so you know exactly how to move a potential consulting client from interest to contract, including powerful discovery calls, compelling proposals, and value-driven pricing.
Book a call to learn more about the program from week 0 to week 12 and how this program will help you avoid the employee-to-independent-to-employee boomerang.
Contract your first client earlier than you would have using trial and error on your own. For example, landing a client one month earlier would be $10k more for you.
Learn to price yourself competitively so you're not leaving money on the table. For example, 20% more on a 6-month contract could be $19,200 more for you.
Avoiding the mistakes most consultants make that lead to overworking, burnout, and second-guessing. This balance and confidence is foundational and will pay off for years to come.
