Jared found Consulting Accelerator to be extremely helpful and worth the investment versus that of an Master's degree. He and his classmates used the program to start their consulting business together and are working on dialing in their niche and growing the business.


Hi guys Jerry Markham here from Los Angeles. The Consulting Accelerator Program for me was well worth the purchase whenever I signed up. I just finished my course work at Pepperdine University for my Masters Degree in Business and I was able to get a couple of my classmates together because we were talking about starting our own consulting business. When I signed up originally they weren't quite aware. We knew we kind of wanted to get into this, we just didn't, wasn't quite sure how to approach it. We thought this would be the best method and you know it was surprisingly fantastic. I didn't know exactly how much value we'd get out of it. For the price it was way better than any course that you could take in school and it cost less than actual one course. When you get down with MBA, you usually have $95,000 in debt. I was fortunate enough that I had tuition reimbursement so I walked out debt free, but at the end of the day the Mindset training, the Facebook training; things like that, getting everything together was really valuable. It's worth way more than what you would expect to pay in this situation. There's a lot of cool things. We had a lot of trouble with the niche selection because we were experienced in actually doing this type of work, but we had no previous experience doing the work in an actual professional field so trying to find our niche, trying to write the avatar and try to get the fears, desires and what these people how they think when they're purchasing this software was the hardest part for us. We had to go and do traditional marketing research, use tricks like we did in school and do the survey on the phone and try to figure some things out. We did have to redo our niche a few times but other than that, the value you get for this is stellar as long as you're willing to put in the work. I really hope this helps you out. Thanks.
