FOR THE INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT
The Ultimate Blueprint for Independent Consultants
A deep-dive into your business with a SME, to help you get clear on what you want in your business and how to get it.
In this IC Success Blueprint you'll:
Get crystal clear on what you want your consulting business to look like in the next 3 years
Take control in your independent consulting business by setting clear goals you'll reach over the next 3 years. This isn't the standard SMART goal-setting process. Instead, this is a deep-dive goal-setting process, where you'll know exactly what you want and why you want it. No more settling for what comes to you. You're going to be clear on exactly what you want, across all the aspects of your business.
Walk away with your strategic roadmap to evolve from where you are now in your business, to where you want to be
Identify the steps to get you to your 3-year plan, including the quick wins and milestones along the way. You'll get clear on your first 1-2 "needle-movers", how you'll reach your business goals, and who you need to become to achieve what you want.
And, you'll be armed with a proactive plan to manage and overcome inevitable roadblocks
There's no doubt you'll hit obstacles on the path to reaching your goals. Overwhelm, self-doubt, and setbacks are part of the process. A key to succeeding in your IC business is to develop a proactive plan to anticipate and manage the obstacles that you'll need to break through on your path to reaching (and exceeding) your goals.I'm Ready
You + This IC Success Blueprint = everything you need to hit your business goals
Maybe you've thought: I can't have everything I want in my consulting business - the income AND the flexibility AND the fulfillment
Or maybe it's: I know I can have the business of my dreams but the price is too high. It takes too much stress and too much sacrifice to get what I want
Either way, the IC Success Blueprint process will show you how you can have everything you want, and more.

- Get clear on what you want in every aspect of your consulting business, so you create the income, flexibility and impact you've dreamed of
- Create the step-by-step map to get there
- Break through your earning ceiling, without needing to work more hours to get there
A Note From Melisa...
I'm a former corporate tech executive turned management consultant and coach.
I've worked at Accenture and also built and led a global professional services organization for a SaaS startup, which I helped lead to a $.25B exit.
After leaving corporate, I became an accidental entrepreneur when my former company hired me on retainer. After I got a taste of the flexibility, income and fulfillment, I realized independent consulting was exactly where I wanted to be.
I've been an independent for the past 9 years and am passionate about helping other independents create the same success, growth and longevity I've achieved.
In short, my goal is to help other independent consultants (or those who are ready to take the leap), to accomplish exactly what they want in your business, as I have in mine.
