EP. 037 - 5 Ways You’re Under-Earning as an Independent Consultant

podcast Nov 25, 2021
 
 
As a coach, I’m honored to work with independent consultants to grow their businesses. As a coach, I see common themes and mistakes almost every IC makes in their business at some point. 

One of these themes I see across almost all ICs is under-earning.

The issue with under-earning is that you can often look outside yourself for things to blame and for external justifications. However, as an independent consultant, you're creating your under-earning and you’re doing this in five very subtle ways that I want to share with you in this episode. 

Once you understand what these five areas are that are causing you to underearn, then you can start doing something about it, because you have full control to address it. Listen in to learn more.

To further assist you with identifying opportunities to improve and grow your business, I want to invite you to check out a new process that I've created called the Independent Consulting Success Blueprint. In this process, I help you assess your business as it is now. You will be able to identify the areas for improvement and opportunities. And then we hop on a 60-minute call where we deep dive into your business, evaluate your findings and determine where your focus should be to get to where you want to go. So I encourage you to book one of these calls so that you can get the clarity that you need in your business to move forward. 

Some of those elements that we're going to talk about in this episode, we will cover in deeper detail during the Independent Consulting Success Blueprint process. So if that's of interest to you go check it out at https://www.melisaliberman.com/ic-blueprint
