Hello, my name is . I want to share my experience with the Sam Ovens' Consulting Accelerator course. I recently started the program and it already has made a huge difference in my life. I retired about 10 years ago as a Researcher and Business Analyst, I thought I knew a lot about consulting, but I didn't like certain aspects about this career. I dreaded talking to clients, especially the first two or three conversations. Of course, I told them that the initial get to know you consulting conversation was no-charge, but many times has turned into a long session with me giving away free information with the client asking question after question and basically getting advice for free, for their issues.
Still, I could never predict the outcome, meaning, did I get a paying client or not? Even though I followed up, I didn't really have the skills to close. I needed to return to work, given the economy and all, but in preparation for this, I saw a webinar about Sam Ovens' Consulting Accelerator course. His presentation resonated with me. I paid in installments and it was the single best investment I have ever made. Right off the bat his training focused on how to control the conversations. The first 15 minute get to know you talk and truly booking the strategy sessions, wow, I could tell he was the real deal and had the experience to know what he was talking about. I, as a result, was better able to focus my niche areas of services. And frankly, I'm still improving and refining in this respect. I was a slow starter, but the best is yet to come.
But, even so, now, my clients are better served with my services, because, I have better identified and clarified my niche service areas instead of jumbling so much together. The client can easily identify his problem areas, too, so we're both focused. Pricing and billing becomes easier now, too. One unexpected and super great added bonus to this training was that I didn't have to have a large staff to be more successful then ever before. And, I'm not pinned down to a desk in the office to do this, I can travel and still keep appointments. Most of my research is internet based anyway, and I can perform my consulting practice duties timely and provide excellence in my services.
So, finally, in conclusion, I'd like to say, I truly dreaded having to return to work, but not know. This feeling is completely gone, thanks to the tutoring by Sam Ovens and his Consulting Accelerator course. Even though I have more to learn and improve upon, I repeat, as I said earlier, the Sam Ovens Consulting Accelerator program is the best career investment I have ever made. Thank you Sam, I owe my success to you. What a magnificent professional you must be.
