Launching the Independent Consultant’s Toolkit

What are you waiting for?

Over 60% of 20somethings want to start a business of their own.

Over 40% of employees want to start their own business.

That’s a lot of people who want to go out on their own, but, for some reason or another, haven’t taken the leap yet. And we get it. Leaping is hard.

What about you? Have you been sitting on a killer business model for years, but just haven’t gone out on a limb to make it a reality?

What’s stopping your from taking life into your own hands and starting your own legacy right here, right now?

We’ve heard it all before:

  • Starting a business costs too much money
  • I wasn’t born with the entrepreneurial gene
  • I’m scared of leaving the corporate bubble
  • It’s too big a risk; I need the security of my monthly paycheck
  • I’m afraid of failure
  • I don’t like the thought of constant self promotion
  • I want to start my own business, but I also really like my current job
  • It sounds like too much hard work
  • I don’t have the time for this
  • And so on…

First off, you aren’t unreasonable for thinking about the challenges. But, to be totally honest with you, none of those reasons should stop you from starting the business you’ve always dreamed of.

It can seem as though there is so much stacked against you when you start out on your own – but in reality, no issue is insurmountable.

Even better news? Independent consultants make more per hour, have more flexibility, and have access to more interesting projects than average employees everywhere – and the businesses require no overhead, no investment, and no risk to get started.

For all of you who dream of being the master of your own destiny, being in charge of your own schedule and leveraging your circumstances to the point that you only work on things you’re passionate about, The Independent Consultant’s Toolkit is just what you’ve been looking for.

1 – The Consulting CEO Bootcamp

Earlier this year, we held a bootcamp for our corporate friends, colleagues and business partners. Together, we worked through a 55-page workbook to go along with it and filmed it. We covered all the basic aspects of business before jumping headfirst into creating a business model for your own consulting business based on your consulting DNA:

  • Your education
  • What you know
  • Your skills
  • Your experience
  • Who you’ve worked for/with in the past

By the time you get to this point of the Bootcamp, you’ll know:

  • What kind of business it is you want to start
  • The business and consulting DNA you carry and how that will shape your business
  • The challenges you’re going to face
  • How to overcome them
  • How to price yourself
  • and a helluva lot more

Valued at $850, the Consulting CEO Bootcamp is an all day event. As part of The Independent Consultant’s Toolkit, you’ll get access to 12 videos from the day and the entire workbook to help you create a personalized plan for your consulting business.

Plus, if you’re interested in having us help you build a tailored plan to start or grow a consulting business, we’re right here for you.

2 – Business Coaching Sessions

In this section, you get to see Jenny Rae do some intensive 1:1 coaching with 8 local entrepreneurs, hear their stories, their pain points and their growth strategy before dishing out some top level business advice.

At 30-45 minutes each every single one of these sessions is a deep dive into growth strategy, giving you the chance to glean some ideas for your own consulting enterprise as well as showing you first hand what real consulting looks like.

The best part? These are real estate, restaurant and media businesses – the kind you’ll find in any city anywhere in the world. You’ll see – in under 1 hour each – how you could make a difference in the fundamental way they operate.

As you follow along, make sure you take notes, as you’ll have $900 of consulting advice at your disposal.

3 – The MC Consulting Starter Pack

One of the things people dread about starting out on their own is getting down to the nitty gritty and creating documents, drafting statements of work, business plans, invoices.

Understandable. That stuff is gnarly – so we did it for you! You get:

  1. Consulting CEO Bootcamp Workbook
  2. Proposal – North Highland
  3. SOW – North Highland
  4. Master Services Agreement/Contract
  5. NDA
  6. Invoice Template 1
  7. Invoice Template 2
  8. Project Management Plan
    • 1 month
    • 3 months
    • 6 months
  9. Project Performance Evaluation
  10. 3 Sample Consulting Project Plans
    • Due Diligence (1 Month)
    • Basic Diagnostic (3 Months)
    • Profitability & Revenue growth project (6 Months)
  11. Business Plan
  12. Example Resume

By itself, this document bundle is worth $600, but it’s included in the toolkit.

How Much Does It Cost?

All 3 pieces – that’s right, everything mentioned above – is $495.

If you actually start the business this year (and by that, I mean you buy the toolkit and tell your local tax advisor that you started the business, even if you have no revenue), this is a tax-deductible professional training expense.

After you buy, you have lifetime access – which includes updates we release in the future.

Why Should I Buy It Right Now?

Let’s face it – if you’re waiting for the perfect time to take the leap and start your own business, then you’re going to be waiting around forever. There is never the “right” time to do the hard but good things.

But if you dream of creating a lifestyle that revolves around your passions, making the impact you’ve always dreamed of making with a schedule that is marked by supreme flexibility, The Independent Consultant’s Toolkit is most definitely for you.

Don’t misunderstand us: starting your own business doesn’t have to mean you have to tell your boss what you really think about him and quit your stable job tomorrow. You have the freedom to start it out as a side project before making consulting your full-time gig if things progress well.

Even though fears can’t be eradicated entirely, the best way to silence them is to DO THE THING. Just start your own low-risk business venture – and see.

That’s the beauty of The Independent Consultant’s Toolkit. Once you buy it, you can start tomorrow. You can work through the whole thing, including the personalized planning workbook, this weekend. But you’ll also have lifetime access to all of the material, so you can come back to it if you start and get a bit gun-shy.

Best case scenario? You can go through the Bootcamp from start to finish, watch all the the Business Coaching sessions, create the framework for your business, target your clients, define your businesses’ scope and draft your work documents all before launching out on your own – which adds up to thousands of dollars of time saved getting started on the right path.

You can do it all on your own. Set out a shingle, thumb your price, and just try it. People have been doing that for almost 100 years, and a few have made it work. So feel free – go it alone. Just remember – without The Independent Consultant’s Toolkit, things are going to be infinitely harder for you. Seriously – why would THAT be attractive?

Remember – $495 (you’ll make that back in less than 1 day. Suck it up). Lifetime access – and a life change – await inside.
