You're great at consulting.

you feel shaky as a business owner.

You know you're great at what you do as a consultant.

As soon as you land a client, you're off to the races.

But getting clients feels uncomfortable and unclear.

You don't like selling yourself.

So you procrastinate and delay until you're stuck taking on the lower-paying, less strategic work that comes across your desk.

You want a predictable, fulfilling consulting business.

You know what you need to do, but you're not sure how to do it. It feels so much harder to do for your own business even when you're an expert for your client's businesses.

  • You've tried to be consistent with your business development activities.
  • You've tried to rework your consulting offers so you're not trading time for money.
  • You've promised yourself you'll prioritize working on your business.

But, you're not where you want to be with your consulting business.

  • You keep repeating the same things and getting the same results.
  • You can't escape this plateau.
  • You're likely questioning if this roller coaster you're on is sustainable.

Running an independent consulting business doesn't have to be this way.

You can have it all if you know what you want and are willing to change your approach...

because, as Marshall Goldsmith famously said,

"What got you here won't get you there."



  • I launched my independent consulting business 11 years ago. And, for the first ~6 years, I struggled.
  • I was taking work that came to me from my network.
  • And, I was overworking, undercharging, not fulfilled, and constantly sacrificing family and personal time to keep my clients happy.
  •  I hit rock bottom the day I was parked on the side of the road to take a client call from the hood of my car while my three crying/fighting boys were inside strapped in their seatbelts.
  • I wanted to make more money, work less, and do work that was valuable and fulfilling.
  • I hired my first coach, and she helped me realize I needed to revamp everything - from what services I was offering, to the types of clients I was targeting, to my lead generation process, to my sales process, and most importantly (although I didn't agree with her at the time...), my self-identity.
  • I figured this out with a lot of trial and error.
  • It took me so much longer than it needed to.
  • And, as a result, I left so much money and free time on the table.

I don't want that to happen to you.

This is why I'm a coach for independent consultants.

I help my clients make more money, have more impact, and create a business-life balance they never realized was even possible.

Hi, I'm Melisa Liberman.

You might say I've been in the trenches just like you. My journey took me from being a corporate consultant at Accenture to building a global consulting team for a SaaS startup. Then, I made the leap into the world of independent consulting and coaching.

For over a decade now, I've been where you are, balancing client work with running a business, and yes, it’s a whole different ball game compared to the corporate world.

My passion is making the complex simple for consultants like you. I've stumbled, learned, and succeeded so you can skip the hard parts and go straight to the success part. With the scale-IC Method™️, I work one-on-one with independent consultants to boost their income, ramp up their impact, and let them enjoy the freedom of working on their terms. Plus, you might catch me on my podcast, the 'Grow Your Independent Consulting Business' Podcast.

My goal today is to help consultants to sidestep the pitfalls that lead to doubt, burnout, or even heading back to a 9-5. I'm here to help you exceed your own expectations so you can embrace the financial rewards, flexibility and freedom that should come with independent consulting.

The scale-IC Program™️ is ideal if you've waved goodbye to the corporate world and already have a couple of clients under your belt. It's for consultants ready to grow a predictable, lucrative business and fully commit to refining their business strategies, processes, and mindset.
