Here's everything you need to build a successful business
Starting or growing a freelance business is challenging. It can also be one of the most rewarding experiences of your career. While you’re an expert in your field, you might not be aware of all the intricacies of being a small business owner. That’s why we’re committed to helping you quickly set up your business and decrease the learning curves of being both a small business owner and consultant, all while saving you tons of money.
GET DISCOUNTS, ADVICE & JOBS
We provide 2 hours of one-on-one consulting each year. Members can use it to get advice on starting their business, finding clients, reviewing pitches, or any other topic you choose.
Big discounts on small business software
We don’t earn money reselling our partners’ software. That means we can offer you the lowest possible prices.
Our service partners are awesome
We personally know and have worked with the partners providing services such as graphic design, website development, podcasting, video production, taxes, HR, employment law, etc. We trust them with our business so you can trust them with yours.
We find and qualify contract jobs
We have more than 50 formal sources to find qualified contract jobs. We also have a healthy network of contacts that share their contract jobs postings with us. We qualify the opportunities based on required skills and budget and deliver the best ones to you in a weekly email.
We give step-by-step advice on starting a freelance business, carving your niche, and finding the most interesting and highest paying clients. We’re also candid when it comes to answering difficult questions about HR, taxes, and employment law. We understand the questions you have running through your head, even the ones you don’t want to ask out loud. We answer them for you. If we don’t have an answer to your question, we’ll go get it.
FIND WORK THAT YOU LOVE
Differentiate your consulting business
Attract the best clients
Clients that understand the value of PR, marketing and communications invest more deeply in those resources. They also build successful, long-term relationships with their consultants. We’ll show you how to qualify clients and cultivate trusted relationships with them while growing your own consulting business.
Have work/life balance
The workforce has changed. Working from home and having more flexibility in your schedule is the norm. As a consultant, you can determine how many work hours a week is the right balance for you. We’ll help you create a work/life balance that aligns with your lifestyle and provides financial stability.
BUILD A THRIVING BUSINESS
Be your own boss
Being self-employed offers great risks and rewards. We’ll minimize the risks so you can reap the benefits.
Maximize your earning potential
Grow your network
While you may work alone or as part of a small team, we’ll connect you with other communications pros so you’re always growing and learning.
