Hey there. Eric Martinson from Denver, Colorado here, and I'm actually on my way to a client that is pretty much a direct result of following Sam's system in the Consulting Accelerator. So I figured that would be the best time to record a little testimonial about the program and encourage others to take it as well.
Before the program, I've run a consulting company before. I had one with a few partners, and they handled the sales and I would do service delivery. For me, sales was just ... It just seemed like this secret sauce that I just couldn't access. I just wasn't able to do what they could do for a variety of reasons, which Sam proved to me that they're irrelevant and just flat out wrong, but it's what I believed.
So for a long time after that closed, getting side work was a matter of essentially me begging for the business, which doesn't lead to the best clients or the best outcomes. So when Sam's course came along, I was just very eager to try it out and see if it could work for me because I really had my doubts, and those were eliminated pretty quickly.
The system that Sam has laid out is just so simple to follow that it's easy to doubt its effectiveness, but if you do, just follow what he says. The results are pretty astounding. It could be for pretty much anyone. I can't think of a way it wouldn't be.
It's just a matter of follow the steps and do these things. Just do the work, and a lot of the extra stuff, like the voices in my head that are telling me I can't do it, just went away. What replaced by that was just this confidence. Confidence of what I was doing, what I was offering, what my value was to the clients, and what I would do. So I just wasn't going to bend over and take whatever because they said so, and it's been amazing.
Then to add onto that, the one aspect where I just didn't think there was going to be any value was the Facebook group. Normally Facebook groups to me are either a waste of time or just extra noise that doesn't provide value, and in this group it's completely different. You have the people from the lowest end just starting out to people that are making six figures a month, and they're all just encouraging you and pushing you to work the system that's in front of you and get results, and when you do, everybody celebrates it. It's just an amazing, amazing community that was a benefit I just didn't really count on when I purchased the course, and I'm so glad I did.
I don't do consulting full-time, and it wasn't my intent. I'm kind of happy where I am in many respects, but I see the path to do this full-time and that's been pretty amazing. It's really up to me at this point how far I want to take it. I can't really recommend Sam's content enough. If nothing else, just for that. The confidence to be able to just take on anything you want.
So if you're on the fence and thinking about it, I would say get off the fence. Do the work, and the success, it will follow. So thanks!
