Don’t Just Consult Or Freelance – Start A Business
Just work a little smarter to explode your business.
You already have the skills that your clients need. Now, build a business around them.
The Pitfalls Of The Consulting and Freelancing Game
The rewards of becoming a consultant or freelancer are great. You can be paid a healthy wage while gaining much of the flexibility you need. And, it just feels good to have your advice or work highly regarded in your industry.
But, not everyone who sets out on their own reaches the high hourly rate and flexible work habits.
Many consultants end up knowing how to perform quality work, but they lack the clients in order to meet their financial goals.
Without enough clients or the right clients (where the work provides the right flexibility), you won’t be happy. You won’t achieve the lifestyle that you are seeking.
I actually already gave away the solution to this problem in my free 3 Steps To Becoming A Consultant Or Freelancer pdf.
The typical consultant doesn’t build a process to generate enough of the right leads. I included many marketing tactics to do just that in my free guide.
There may come a time, though, when it makes sense to build a business around your consulting or freelancing skills.
When consulting or freelancing just isn’t cutting it
You’ve considered or tried the consulting/freelance path. You just didn’t get the clients you hoped for. Or, the flexibility to work when and where you want just didn’t come.
You know that something is missing. You want more, like way more.
You want to be excited to wake up in the morning. You crave to spend more time with your family. And, at long last, you want the flexibility to be able to work from wherever you want.
Build a business around your skills and passions
The thing about consulting and freelancing is that you are doing 80% of the work of creating a full fledged business that can support the schedule and location flexibility you are looking for.
By not building a business around your skills, you are risking simply not finding enough work.
You’ve come so far, so why not finish building the business that will bring in the right clients that you need?
The missing details are hidden in your value proposition (offers and target clients) and marketing plan.
You are likely struggling to offer the right solution to the right customer.
When you figure out the right offer for the right client and how to get the word out about it, the rest will fall into place!
You have the skills, and you’re excited to use them.
You can’t wait for work to be fun! You’re ready to look forward to Monday!
Considering the current health crisis, you might be sick of seeing your kids. But, eventually, you will want to be able to see your kids anytime you want, and have the energy at the end of the day to actually enjoy them.
The current uncertainty in the world has cancelled your travel schedule indefinitely. But, when it is safe to travel again, you’ll be ready.
Hi! I’m BJ.
I am a lifestyle business mentor. I help people spend more time with their family, find “work” they love, and travel as much as they like. Isn’t that what life is about?
My clients are tired of the usual way of life: go to a generally unfulfilling job, spend what little energy remains with their families, and enjoy their limited vacation days on a rushed timeline.
They demand more. They want to finally feel like they have supplied the time and energy their families need from them. They crave work that they find rewarding and fulfilling. Travel is no longer optional for them – it’s necessary to learn and teach their kids about the world.
I’ll help you find the perfect match of your skills and your passions to connect with your ideal client. You’ll learn exactly how to turn what you love to do into an income – that you can do from anywhere.
At the end of our time together your life will be almost unrecognizable – doing work you love, taking care of your family, wherever you want.
As a result of this program, you will:
SCHEDULE SOME CHILD CARE AND GET READY TO SEE YOUR FUTURE
In just two sessions, we’ll get you headed in the right direction by following these steps:
We’re putting together a puzzle. The first step is to figure out what you want the final puzzle to look like. This is the picture on the front of the puzzle box.
You have started down a path of trying to get what you want: flexibility. You either considered a remote job or actually started applying. In either case, you know what you want in terms of location. Now, it’s time to consider when you want to work and what your ideal work consists of. I’ll send you a questionnaire to help you sort through what exactly you want your work life to look like. It will also jump right into an exercise that will explore your existing knowledge and skills.
The beautiful part is that you get to design it completely around your personal life, not the other way around. This questionnaire is 20% to bring me up to speed and 80% for you to get very clear on what you want.
The next step of the puzzle is finding the corner pieces. These are the pieces that are most easily recognizable, and you can figure out where they go. This 90 minute one on one session with me is when we will sift through your existing skills, interests, and opportunities to figure out what you want your corner pieces to be. By the end of the session, we’ll have identified several options on how you want to serve which audience.
Our goal is to satisfy three requirements. The holy grail is to find a product or service that:
- Utilizes your strengths and skills.
- Is something you love doing.
- Provides value for your target customer.
Once you tame the whirlwind of ideas flying around your brain, you’ll get excited about actually being able to see a path forward!
Chances are you’ll walk away from our initial discussion with a few different avenues to look into. This typically looks like researching online, talking to particular people in your network, finding examples of how others in your industry are doing what you want to do, or getting started creating content.
This information that you’ll uncover represents a few pieces from different sides of the puzzle. Aside from the corner pieces, the side pieces are the next most recognizable and easy to put into place. With very specific actions, you’ll take 1-2 weeks to learn a little more about the path that lies ahead.
I am excited for how much you’ll learn in this early planning stage. You’ll open up your world to so many opportunities that have been there the whole time. You just didn’t know how to train your brain to see them.
We will get back together via video call to discuss the exciting information you gathered. This is when accomplishing your dream finally starts to feel possible. During our first session, we came up with a few options and now we are whittling them down. We will flesh out several options to determine your best path forward.
By the end of this session, you’ll feel energized and focused to continue down your chosen path.
We will discuss how you plan on continuing to put the puzzle together. Are you going to schedule additional child care? Find some time during the day? Wake up early?
When we part ways, you’ll know exactly what you need to be working on. I’ll also lay out a few more steps beyond the immediate one. You’ll continue a steady and deliberate pace toward the business that will fuel your lifestyle!
You know that doing nothing is not an option.
Just imagine what your life will be like when you’re excited to wake up in the morning. Think about how much your family will enjoy being able to travel as much as you like (when that’s a thing again).
For me, though (and maybe for you, too), think about how this investment will affect your family. You’ll get to teach your kids how to pursue their dreams by leading by example.
