I had always thought to myself if I were to start over again with my business I would get some advice or coaching. Then I realised that I was not reaching my full potential and was really just limping along with 1-2 weak prospects in my pipeline at any given time. Within 6 weeks of working with the Consulting Success® team my pipeline was full and the first new clients were in place. Most importantly I have learned to focus more on the unique value I can deliver and that has increased my own sense of satisfaction with what I do. Not knowing Michael or the Consulting Success® team I thought it was a risk to invest 5 figures in coaching, now I view it not as a risk but a necessity."

BioSci Consulting, Belgium
Former Assistant Professor, University of Vermont College of Medicine

We had our best year ever last year, adding hundreds of thousands of dollars in new revenue, and I'm very excited for the growth we'll experience this year! I've worked as part of large consulting companies and consulted for some of the world's biggest businesses. When it came to growing my own consulting business this coaching program was a clear fit. I've invested a significant amount of money to work with Michael and his team and I continue to. It's been a great investment."

I'm excited to share another win today! After persistent follow up, I just finished signing up another consulting client which is my 7th client so far since working closely with Michael, Sam and the Consulting Success® team. Of course I still have a long way to go but revenue is coming in, people are saying yes to my offers and I'm so much more clear on my business model including my pricing, packages, marketing strategy, sales process, and so much more."

Sarah Borders
Sarah Borders
Founder of Benefits Compliance Solutions

I wanted to find a better way to package my expertise and services to convey greater value. That's exactly what I've done as part of the Clarity Coaching program. I have stronger and better defined packaged offerings, my pipeline is growing and my revenue is up 80% year over year. I recommend working with Consulting Success® to any consultant who wants to grow, improve and take their business to a higher level."

CEO, OnTarget Consultancy, Germany

When I started this program a month ago, I had a vision for success, yet critical problems around my ideal client clarity, my messaging, services, proposals, and marketing systems - all crucial areas I needed help in.

Over the past month of working with Michael, Sam, Elliot and the rest of this community, not only has so much of this now tightened up, become more clear, and streamlined, but I'm grateful to announce that today I signed on with three brand new ideal clients that value 50k over the next 3 months with more opportunities looming ahead. Thank you all -- I owe much of the recent success to you.

Morgan Keim

Founder of Sprouted Ventures

I was heading into new territory and wanted to achieve growth fast. It felt like a big investment, committing several thousand dollars into the coaching program. I have to say, it was the right decision. From day one I got the support I wanted and needed including clear guidance on how to present my offerings, approach my marketing and win more proposals. In a matter of weeks, with help re-structuring my offerings so I can serve multiple clients at once, I added $10k/mo to my business. This has been a very positive investment!"

I joined the Clarity Coaching program 2 weeks ago and have been working through my strategic offer and "Revenue Roadmap Program" with Michael. I met with a couple CEOs and both asked for a proposal on a next stage of work. Within 3 days I had a confirmed project that was for $55k and a verbal yes on another for $33.5k. I am now a fully committed Strategic Offer zealot. Sam pointed out that this was a very good return on my Consulting Success® investment - I agree. Thank you guys for the feedback so far - let's all keep the momentum rolling!"

Doug Nelson

What sometimes seems like a small adjustment can have a huge impact! I re-positioned how I communicate value based on your feedback and just heard back from my client. They've engaged me for a two day session at 5-figures! I didn't have to negotiate or lower my price. Really appreciate the coaching and guidance!"

Scott D. Payne
Scott D. Payne
Founder, SDP Solutions

I've landed 11 new clients during the program. I didn't know what I was getting into when I jumped on a call to learn more about the program, but I'm so glad I did. There are a lot of key learnings I've got working with you guys. I sincerely appreciate everything that I've received in terms of support, but also in terms of my own business and the amount of business that I've been on to write and increased my billings exponentially."

Four weeks after starting this program I won a deal worth over $40k. Before I started working with Consulting Success® I was studying and overwhelming myself with knowledge. I could not properly implement. What a difference now. Many thanks for your support!"

As a successful entrepreneur recently transitioning into a consulting practice, joining the Clarity Coaching program and working with Sam and Michael was the best decision I could have made. I have gone through several coaching programs and mastermind groups but Clarity Coaching was different for me. It’s the first program that provided a focused, linear path to success with a clear, detailed process, accountability, tremendous group support and specific tools to ensure your success. Beyond that, you have complete access to Sam and Michael who clearly have the best interests of their clients in mind at all times and continue to find new ways to provide additional value throughout the process. It’s refreshing to work with a group of highly successful individuals who have already been where you're going and who can provide real world advice and support. Consulting Success® is 100% focused own their clients' success."

Michael and the team at Consulting Success® are truly Marketing Experts. Their own work illustrates exactly what they coach others to do. Every interaction feels personal, as if you're their only client. I reached out to Consulting Success® for help getting my consulting practice to the next level. They brought immediate clarity to my value proposition and marketing strategy and I found myself truly energized for my new focus starting on my very first day of working with them. If you want to take your consulting business higher, you should be talking to Michael and the Consulting Success® team."

Peg Ayers
Peg Ayers, MBA CCXP
CX Consultant
Former Senior Director Office Depot

Thank you Michael and Sam for all your support! After reluctantly joining the Clarity Program because of my limited schedule, I closed my first discovery offer of $15,000 with a strong potential of full engagement of $185,000 in Milan, Italy.

I picked the program because I definitely needed the structure and guidance in accomplishing my short term goals in less than three weeks, mainly building a new website, updating my linkedin profile, and writing winning proposals in preparation of attending an industry trade show in Geneva, Switzerland.

During the trade show I qualified potential ideal clients and walked away with seven proposal requests, while also turning away more than five potential clients because I didn't believe it would be a good fit. Five weeks later I flew back to Europe to follow-up with two out of the seven original ideal clients and closed the my first deal on my first day in country. I still need to send out three of my seven original proposals, however, without the structure and accountability of the Clarity Program I doubt I would have gotten so far so fast."

When I changed my magnetic message that made my value proposition and the [value and fees] of my leadership go way way up. You helped me talk about a problem [that my ideal clients care about] and how I can help them to solve it in a meaningful way. Kudos to you on the magnetic message. It's so awesome. Thank you. It's really changed my perspective on how I position what I do and having people want to reach out to me. It's definitely helping."

The Program has netted me well in excess of the coaching fees within weeks of beginning. Michael has provided invaluable coaching and insight that has really helped me to develop my business. He’s “been there, done that” and the experience really pays off. Top notch!"

Jeff Griffiths

Calgary, Canada
Griffiths Sheppard Consulting Group

I got burned out in the corporate world and decided I wanted to do my own thing, but the truth is even though I knew my expertise, I didn't know how to market and run my own business. I now spend a lot more time with my family. I make twice as much as I did as an employee and I wasn't doing too badly as an employee either. And compared to when I first got started in consulting, I'm making five times more with my fees. I feel excited about the plan I have in place for the future.

Christie Scanlon
Christie Scanlon
Cost-Accounting Consultant, Indiana
Former Director, Agilum Healthcare Intelligence

I joined the Clarity coaching program to zero in on my ideal client so that I could get my value proposition, fee structure, and offerings focused. My investment in the program started paying off quickly and before the end of the 8 weeks I landed a new client and I have real clarity that will help me in the months and years to come using what I have learned.

Scott Gillespie
Scott Gillespie, Agronomy Consultant

Initially I was hesitant about investing several thousand dollars per month into coaching. But within 3 months I had landed almost six-figures in new business. It's been the best decision and investment I've made in my business. I had a blueprint, a strategy, and the confidence I needed. It was a scary thing to do at the time, but I know I wouldn't be where I am 4-years later if I had not made the decision to enroll in the program."

Michael's ideas and expertise have served my company very well! We hired Michael to help us define revenue paths and approaches for our new consultancy--from strategic to tactical. He helped us define and articulate the company's direction, strengths, goals, and leverage points. Michael's expertise has provided us with an understanding of how to gain more customers and communicate a unique value proposition that addresses their problems.

I’ve doubled my business in less than 12 weeks. Consulting Success® helped me to re-package my offerings and improve my pricing structures which lead to a 40% increase in my fees and I’ve already landed 2 new projects at my new rate and I’m confident many more to come."

With Michael and Consulting Success® by our side, pushing us to rethink some of the fundamentals we were overlooking and tweak even just small things about our process, we beat our revenue goal for 2016 by 25%. And that's after Michael recommended we double it on our first call with him."

Shane Reiser
Shane Reiser, Partner
Your Ideas Are Terrible
Former Director at Dwolla

Michael is a marketing coach with an effective and efficient method for building a lucrative consulting practice. The coaching conversations leave nothing unturned or unsupported and I am continually amazed at their ability to cut through the chaos of entrepreneurship and outline the next, simple steps to success.

There is not an ounce of wasted time in our conversations or in their recommendations. As a mother, wife and 15 year consultant, I value his no-nonsense expertise and wisdom very highly; I have no time to waste and need to support my family, while also finding fulfillment in my work. With Consulting Success® on my team, I am guaranteed that will happen. I doubled my fees half way through their program and now have the confidence to start expanding my offerings.

I would highly recommend Michael and the Consulting Success® Coaching program, it is worth every penny and more."

Shelley Churchill

Former Manager Capgemini Consulting

I decided to level up again by investing in the coaching program. I was able to land $30K in client contracts which easily was more than 3x my investment. I anticipate making so much more throughout the year with the tools that I invested in.

It’s a no brainer...if you’ve seen and experienced results after applying any of the Consulting Success® practices from his articles or products, then hire Michael as a coach and stop wasting time, like I did. I could’ve made more money a lot earlier in my venture. So don’t make my mistake."

Damien Wilpitz

I have decided to use Michael's services in an effort to grow my business. I had things going rather well, but knew that I could do better. Michael helped me in finding the unused potential that I had and leverage that in a short timespan. Within 2 months, I've been able to increase the size of the deals as well as my pipeline and to have a clean plan on how to move my business forward."

Michael is a guru of the modern marketing business. He understands how brands are built and maintained. His business background gives him solid understanding of channels of trade, and he gets how to build a business, and where clients are shopping. He applies practical savvy to problems. The one thing that sets him apart from the crowd of marketing professionals is his laser-like focus on actual measurable results. I have known Michael for years, worked with him, relied on him for important advice, and have no hesitation recommending him highly."
