Your Outcome

Your Outcome

Learn how to package, price, and promote your consulting services.

If you’re anything like me, you know you have expertise to share with the world, and you want to do so in the most efficient and fulfilling way possible.

And, although you’re an expert at your craft, the process of creating a business around it seems challenging. You’re willing to put in the work, but before doing so, you first need a clear and vetted path to success.

It’s time to move past those concerns by leveraging the actions, tools and mindset involved with scaling a consulting business. And, you’ll do so without cold-calling or sacrificing time away from your family, hobbies or other personal interests.

But instead of just receiving information, you'll also get customized advice on how to grow based on your personality, service offering and audience. I'll meet with you every week for live Q&A to support you throughout the course and beyond.

Your Business Development Process

By the end of this course you will be able to:

- Clearly explain what you do, who you do it for, and how much to charge

- Streamline your business process by implementing time-saving workflows and automations

- Create content and land partnerships to increase your reach and authority.

- Seamlessly navigate sales calls, and know when to turn down opportunities

- Effectively manage client relationships and deliver high-impact outcomes

And I'll be with you every step of the way.

Your Instructor

Terry Rice

Terry Rice is a Business Development Consultant and Staff Writer at Entrepreneur magazine. His work is focused on advising professionals on how to launch or scale their knowledge-based businesses so they can get paid for who they are, instead of just what they do.

Terry started his consulting career at Adobe before moving on to roles at agencies in New York City and Facebook. As his family began to grow, he decided to leave the corporate world so he could spend more time with them, and other interests - including physical fitness and writing - that were more fulfilling.

As an extension of his work, he’s an instructor at both New York University and General Assembly. Terry has has also been a featured speaker at South by Southwest and Social Media Week.

Frequently asked questions

Why is this better than other consulting courses?

The curriculum provided in this course was delivered live over 50 times before being presented in this format. It’s also the only course built by a trained educator, and in partnership with Entrepreneur magazine. This means you’ll learn from an expert who knows how to structure content in a way that is sequential and aligned with your desired outcomes. And, instead of learning how to be a freelancer, you’ll become an entrepreneur by leveraging workflows, routines and apps aligned with growth and efficiency.

Will I get support from the course instructor?

Yes. Each week you can join live Q&A sessions to get your specific questions answered. You’ll also join a private Facebook community.

This seems like a lot of content, how long will it take to complete?

You should be able to complete the course and all associated action items in about 4-6 weeks. However, there’s also an accelerated path which allows you to move a bit faster based on your desired pace and time commitment. With lifetime access, you can always complete the remaining sections at a later time.

Will I be able to consult clients after this course?

Yes. In fact, students have landed clients while still completing this course due to the hands-on nature of the activities.

What if I’m not comfortable with cold calling?

At its core, this program helps you attract your target audience through the content and partnerships you develop. However, you’ll also receive templates and guidance that allow you to proactively - and authentically - reach out to prospects.

How do I implement all the content covered in this program?

Upon joining the course, you’ll receive The Coaching Playbook. Over 100 pages of guides, scripts and templates for you to customize based on your unique goals. You’ll also gain access to the One Page Business Plan for Consultants. This will allow you to determine and document all of the action items aligned with reaching your desired outcome. If you choose the accelerated path, you’ll focus on the sections included in the One Page Business Plan.

What are my payment options?

You can pay in three monthly installments or all at once for additional savings. We securely process all payments through PayPal and Stripe, and you’ll get an email receipt immediately after purchase. If you need a more detailed invoice for your records, let us know and we'll be happy to help you.
