Hi it's Chris Richard, from Sydney. I started Sam Owens course in August 2016.
I have a different reason for why I joined. Different reason than most other people. Probably why I don't have a success story.
The reason why I did it was more about education and to improve my skills. And I thought that consulting was an area that I could improve on. It's going to work for any business.
So the business that I'm starting, it's a software business. I'm building a software product for my own profession.
So I'm and accountant. That's what I do as a part of my day job, and on the side I'm building a software product that will solve a big pain point for many accounting firms.
I found that you need to do consulting in the beginning to develop your customers. You want potential customers to be scheduling appointments with you, so you can ask them questions to understand what their biggest pains are and to build a software that will solve their problem.
So, yes this costs ... it's probably not what you intended me to use it for, but I still found it really valuable and I'd recommend it to anyone.
