Hi guys. Jason here from Perth, Western Australia. I just thought I'd take a few moments of your time to give you my thoughts on the Sam Ovens Consulting Accelerator program. Now, before I found the program I was a 20 year veteran of the building and construction industry, working on large scale projects, spending more and more time at work, making more and more money for other people, and spending less and less time with my family.
Now, in order to spend more time with my family and get a better work/life balance, I made the conscious decision to become a consultant. Now, the first 12 months of my consulting career didn't go too well. I was spending more time at work, less time with the family again, and barely making ends meet. About six months ago, I made the decision to do some research and find someone who could help me with my consulting business, because the status quo wasn't working. That's when I found Sam Ovens' Consulting Accelerator program.
Since starting the program, I found that I went about the consulting business all wrong. I was using very much a shotgun approach, rather than a sniper approach. I hadn't found a niche, my mindset was all wrong, and my approach to clients was all wrong. Now, I know that the program is suggested to go over six weeks, but I made a conscious decision to spread it out over three to four months and really target in and focus on each area. Specifically, get it right, and then move on. Since then, I've really targeted my niche, really boiled it down to exactly what it is I do and enjoy doing. I'm learning to understand what the client wants and needs, my mindset is very focused, as opposed to scatterbrain as it was when I first started.
I'm finding the success is now finally starting to come in, and I'm getting my clients. Now, I've only just today sealed my fourth client. Now, three or four months, it might not sound like much, but like I said, I've taken a slower approach to it but that fourth client was an important client for me, because it now means that the money I was earning prior to becoming a consultant, I'm now matching with the four clients that I've picked up in the last three months. For me, I've managed to find more time for myself now, more time for my family, I'm enjoying what I'm doing, and the program itself was a godsend.
Now, for people who are thinking about doing the program, I 100% recommend it if you're prepared to do the work, and you're prepared to follow the process. If you think you're just going to jump onboard, quickly watch it for two minutes and jump straight back out there, don't waste your time, don't waste your money. But if you're prepared to do the work, if you're prepared to follow the process, and you're prepared to be part of the community, talk to people when you need to, then this is definitely the program for you, and there's no reason why you too can't be a success.
