For your convenience, you can download the webinar slides here.

Starting a consulting business can be overwhelming and a little scary. There are many things to consider, plenty of unknowns, and a lot of resources to choose from to help you along the way.

Where should you begin?

When starting my first business, I learned things the hard way because I had limited resources to invest in my own development. I don’t want you to be in that position.

Part of my company’s business model has always included creating free content to share what I’ve learned and help everyone get to the next level. One of my passions is helping fellow nonprofit consultants. If you are building a nonprofit consulting business—this is for you!

Listen to this on-demand so you can learn from my mistakes and build success quicker. I share how I went from making ends meet to managing a successful six-figure business in under five years.

We cover:

  • Growing a list and why it is important
  • Ideal clients and how to identify them
  • Establishing rates
  • Using your website as a tool for growth
