As you probably remember, I released several new consulting resources last week.
However, I was blown away by your response. Judging from your e-mails and the nearly 300 people who downloaded the consulting resources kit over the weekend–yes, over the weekend, when you’re supposed to be AWAY from your computer–that’s an incredible response.
Like I’ve said, my goal is to provide you with the kind of information I needed when I started out, and to help you achieve the same kind of financial and lifestyle success that I’ve been able to achieve–and that I used to think was unrealistic.
Seeing your response has been incredibly gratifying, humbling, and rewarding.
You’ve told me…
You’ve told me some of the changes you want to make in your life.
If you’ve got a day job, chances are high that you’re one of those 80% of workers who don’t like their job. If you’ve already started a consulting business, maybe you’ve been frustrated, and want to grow your business to the next level.
The fact is, we ALL want to make changes in our lives. Maybe you want to earn more money, or quit your day job, or have more freedom and flexibility in your life.
The great thing about consulting is that you already have marketable skills, and there are virtually unlimited consulting opportunities out there. The fact that there are lots of other people are freelancing and consulting only shows that there truly are tons of opportunities out there to build a consulting business that can change your life.
You’ve told me the biggest challenges you face, and some of the biggest frustrations and fears you have in starting and building your consulting business.
What’s in store, and how it’ll be different in a major way
You’ve told me–loud and clear–that a comprehensive consulting training system is needed that will help propel you toward a profitable consulting business, and ultimately, your ideal lifestyle.
Now, although most of the resources on this blog are free, as you know, this blog is a business, and the consulting system will be a premium product.
There are a few reasons why I’m making it a premium product:
- The consulting system is going to be a comprehensive curriculum, covering all the topics–in depth–to allow you to build a profitable consulting business, whether you’re just starting out, or have been consulting for a while.
- I’m completely committed to making this consulting system results-oriented, and going all-out with it to make it insanely useful. Like I’ve said before, I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I’m also passionate about making this hands-down the best consulting resource on the market.
- Creating all the content for the consulting system will require me to take a significant amount of time away from my regular consulting.
The value is going to be immense
The value you’ll get for this premium consulting system is going to be immense.
For example, as you know, I’ve posted my income for every month since I started my consulting business back in early 2007.
In 2007–my very first year consulting–the average value of each of my clients was over $4,000; that means, on average, each client paid me over $4,000. Even if I’d charged just HALF my hourly rate, an average client from back in 2007 would’ve paid me $2,000.
Since then, my average client value has gone up; in 2011, the average amount I billed a client has climbed to nearly $7,000. And remember, most consulting clients will continue to give you work over a long period–years, in fact.
And you don’t need many clients. In 2007, the first year I began consulting, I only billed 5 clients. But that brought me over $20,000. Yep, just 5 clients that year.
So, yes, the value of this material is huge–enough to literally transform your life.
And transforming your life is the whole reason I started this blog. It’s nice to be able to say I quit my job, became a consultant, and now earn more, have much more freedom, flexibility, and financial security. But it’s incredibly gratifying–and energizing–to hear how I’m helping you do the same.
This is going to be a huge undertaking
To create all the resources–video, workbooks, Q&A calls, etc.–will be an immense undertaking for me. This isn’t going to be a little ebook; it’s going to be an all-inclusive system.
Taking part in this consulting system is going to be a learning process for you–since you’ll be in the very first graduating class.
But it’s also going to be a learning process for me as well.
I’m going to focus on what’s most useful to you and how I can best mentor you so you can succeed no matter where you’re starting from, what your niche is, or what your level of experience is.
The very first graduating class
When the doors officially open on this premium consulting system, I want to have all the kinks worked out.
I want to ensure that our online curriculum has been carefully crafted from the ground up to meet your needs, that our online learning environment works flawlessly, that the live conference call service we use for Q&A sessions and mentoring calls meets our needs without any problems, etc.
When the premium consulting system officially opens, I want to make sure that everything works without any hiccups.
Here’s the trade-off
As members of the first graduating class–the “First 50″ participants–I’ll want extra feedback and participation from you. I want you to give me lots of input on the content and how it’s delivered, what topics you’d like me to spend more or less time on, and let me know as soon as possible if any technical glitches come up (and then be patient with me as I work to get them fixed as quickly as possible).
As part of the “First 50,” I’ll want you to:
- give me your thoughts on our online learning environment;
- heavily use the online peer-support forums and fill them with case studies;
- fill out 2 to 3 additional surveys, and serve in an advisory role by becoming members of a virtual advisory “focus group” to help this program be the very best it can be.
In exchange for this, you’ll get 50% off the final price
In addition, you’ll also get special “First 50″ status, which will come with its own perks, like discounts on future products, classes, and seminars.
Are you POTENTIALLY interested in becoming one of the “First 50″?
At this point, I’m not looking for commitments–after all, I haven’t even decided on the price yet.
But if you’re POTENTIALLY interested in becoming a “First 50″ participant in the consulting system, then click this link to email me. Let me know:
- that you’re interested, and
- what’s the biggest benefit you want to get out of the program.
If I decide to proceed with this “First 50″ program, then I’ll be sending out details in the next day or so.
