You can be a successful independent consultant and I’m going to show you how.
TIME TO GO SOLO
Getting tired of making money for other people?
Maybe you're here because you've been impacted by layoffs due to Covid-19. Perhaps you found me because you're tired of the long hours and crashing your head into that glass ceiling. Maybe you seek autonomy, the ability to build wealth and to become financially independent. Or maybe you’re here simply because you're tired of working for someone else.
I want to help teach you that it’s possible to remove the ceiling on your income potential, work fewer hours and bring in more cash.
However, after having two babies in 3 years, it became obvious pretty quickly that big consulting firms are not set up very well to support young moms. I had little control over my schedule and there were very high expectations with respect to how many hours I worked. I was killing myself to prove to everyone that I could do it all – be a great consultant, a great mom, partner and friend… but I felt like I was failing at everything. And it just didn’t seem worth it to be busting my ass for the compensation I was earning.
My aha moment came when a client of mine suggested that I go independent and start my own consulting company. I was 36 at the time and thought – “only super experienced (i.e. OLD) people can do that!”.
I had all the fears you probably have right now:
- I’m not an expert in anything – I don’t have the right skills
- I don’t know how to start a business
- I have no idea how to deal with proposals and contracts and accounting systems
- And worst - what if no one hires me? What if I fail?
Thankfully – I did have confidence in my skills and abilities, and figured I could learn all that stuff as I went. I spent weeks researching online, meeting people for coffee, and getting advice from lawyers and accountants. I took the leap and started my business in 2014, and I’ve honestly never regretted it for one second. I was able to leverage my network and build my business largely through word of mouth and referrals, and I doubled my income in my first year. Since then, I’ve grown my business every year and now make WAY more than what I did working for that big consulting firm.
How Would it Feel to Double Your Income?
My goal now is to pay it forward and to help you do the same thing – remove the limitations on how much you can earn AND gain more freedom and flexibility to enjoy your life outside of work. This program encompasses everything I've learned about starting a consulting business – you get to benefit from my mistakes, accelerate your path and start bringing in money sooner...like next month!
What would it mean to you and your family to earn more while working less?
You love providing exceptional services to your clients but you're feeling crushed by the long hours and culture at your big firm. You want more freedom, autonomy and the ability to build significant wealth. You need guidance, support and actionable steps to rapidly set up your own consulting business, and you're ready to make an investment to accelerate your path.

Top 5 Reasons
To Launch a Consulting Business
Starting your own consulting business can feel scary, but I promise you the benefits are worth the risks.
You Will Have Flexibility and BalanceWhen you‘re the boss, you can set your schedule. Need to take 3-5pm off to pick kids up from school? Prefer to work out mid-morning? Like to take summers off? It’s all possible.
You Will Determine Your Own Worth
It’s very likely you’ve been led to believe you should be grateful for your current salary. As an independent consultant, you can set your own fees and double your income with ease.
You Will Decide Which Clients to Work With
Independent consultants get to seek out the projects and industries that interest them most. You’ll be able to find the clients who are aligned to your values and working style.
You Will Gain Autonomy and PowerTrust me – it feels incredible to have agency to make your own decisions about your professional life. No need to ask permission. Power means setting your own goals and making them happen.
You Can Rapidly Build WealthThe difference in income between being an employee and owning your own consulting business is massive. Using tax deferral strategies can help you rapidly build wealth.

Amanda helped me quickly set up and launch my consulting business, and has coached me on how to land contracts, charge what I'm worth, and effectively manage relationships with clients. I highly recommend her services!"
