Are you at the mercy of your business, feeling forced to choose between taking time off and leaving billable money on the table? Do you feel like you should maximize the billing that you've got on a project because you never know what next year is going to bring? Does it feel impossible to get out in front of your business and that you’re stuck in a reactionary cycle?

I want to help you get out in front of your business so that you're not at the mercy of it anymore. 

Listen in as I share the first pillar of my Double Method for Independent Consultants, a strategy you can use to get out in front of your business so that you're not at the mercy of it anymore and double your revenue without working more. This needs to be the guiding force for what you're doing as a business owner.

It will give you that clear path for your business. So you know exactly what it is that you're headed toward versus just taking what you can get. It'll give you that control back in your business versus feeling you're at the mercy of the clients who come to you. And it's going to give you enough lead time to land your ideal clients and projects. Developing your consulting-specific business plan should be a guiding force for you as a business owner.

If you want help figuring out the plan to double your business without working more, then apply for a revenue optimization session with me. We'll dive into your business and we'll get clear on your goals, your challenges and figure out an action plan for you to create the business impact, the income, and the flexibility that you want in your independent consulting business.
