What Consultants Say About Working With Us:
The Clarity Coaching program is truly an amazing program. It has transformed me personally and professionally in a very short time frame. I got my first real paying client over the last couple of weeks by utilizing the things I have learned so far. The client has already agreed to packages that put more money in my bank account! It really feels good to see some positive things coming back to me by putting the things I am learning into action. I would recommend this program to anyone either just starting out like me or been in the business for a long time. Every aspect works. The forum, the coaching calls, the follow up. It is great!
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."
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."
Is Michael Zipursky full of sh*t?" With so much hype and fake 'gurus' online these days that's the question I asked myself. So I signed up for one of the Consulting Success paid workshops to find out. It was a two day workshop and I had my answer on day one. A couple of days after that workshop I joined the Clarity Coaching program and have received tremendous value being a part of this community. It's helping me to grow my business to the next level and I highly recommend it. And yes, Michael and Consulting Success are the real deal."
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."
Boom! It's my first week in Clarity Coaching and I just landed a new project. Got a verbal yes on a call today with the founder, and he just paid the invoice in full now! I ended up charging almost double my previous fees thanks to my Clarity coach who pushed me to really understand the value of what I deliver to my clients. Based on how quickly the client said yes I think my coach was definitely right. Loving this program so far and I know there'll be more clients coming soon!"
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.
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!"
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!"
I was very skeptical before joining the Clarity program because of bad past experiences in other coaching programs. I'm so glad I took the leap of faith and joined Clarity Coaching. This is the most organized and structured coaching program I've ever been part of. It's so powerful because it's focused strictly on consultants and Michael, Sam, and their talented team of coaches deliver massive value! I am more clear and confident on my plan for greater growth, who I'm able to best serve, and my offerings and business model are now optimized. I'm excited for what's coming next!"
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."
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!"
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.
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.
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. As a result, we have expanded our client base! He will make your company more successful! Hire him!!"
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."
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."
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."
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."
Michael is a great thought leader in the world of professional consulting and providing trusted adviser services. Through his efforts, the best and brightest thinkers in this space are able to share the best practices across markets and disciplines for the performance improvement of those practitioners clients. The platform and forum he has established as well as his recent book have made a big impact on my own business."
I joined the Clarity Coaching Program to get feedback and guidance on how to best grow my business. I'd seen some success, I knew there was a lot of opportunity for me, but I wasn't clear on how to best leverage it and what steps to take. I got a great ROI in the program and my investment was well worth it. I sharpened my messaging, got real clarity on my ideal clients, increased my fees with success and my business has more than doubled since joining the program. I highly recommend Clarity Coaching."
I've run my consulting business for over 25 years. We have a small team and do great work. As a result, all of our business had come from referrals. When COVID hit, like for many, we faced some challenges. I decided it was time to look for help to grow our consulting business beyond just referrals and our network. That's why I reached out to the team at Consulting Success. They helped us sharpen our message, get our marketing in order and take the right actions to begin building a real pipeline of business. I'm pleased to say that's exactly what's happened. Our initial marketing is getting great responses and we now have several new client opportunities I'm excited about! I would certainly recommend working with the team at Consulting Success."
Based on your suggestions I’ve been tweaking our sales conversations and pre-sales process with potential clients over the last few weeks. I'm happy to share that I just signed up my 6th client since joining your coaching program, where the company paused after I stated the price...their next sentence was “I’m ready to sign up!”. It was really validating and I just wanted to thank you for your advice and encouragement in the past few months of Clarity Coaching!"
Working with the Consulting Success team did two very important things for me...
- Setting up a marketing plan that works so beautifully on relationship building (my core strengths) and
- Focus on my zone of genius - Transformation work in the Contact Centre world niching down to Retail and Travel
With your guidance I put systems in place which allowed me to create revenue consistently and with a certain predictability - which is invaluable for a consultant! Anyone wondering how to take their consultancy to the next level - Consulting Success certainly delivers just that!"
My experience with Consulting Success in the Clarity coaching program was valuable. The team was great to work with. They asked great probing questions that helped me gain clarity. With their guidance I refined my persona, messaging, sales, marketing, and how to create win-win proposals. With the community of consultants Consulting Success has built, there is a family atmosphere. They guide groups of consultants through their most challenging opportunities. It provides an opportunity for consultants to learn from others' experiences. Needless to say, my time in the Clarity program was invaluable and I recommend the program to other consultants."
Absolutely loved working with Michael and the team at Consulting Success. I was on the fence for a long time feeling like I was just too busy to engage, but their program is so well oiled that I was able to easily dive in and get the targeted help I needed. The community of other consultants that you become a part of was the icing on the cake. I'm grateful to have this team in my corner!"
After several years of resisting narrowing my scope of services, Michael, Sam and the Consulting Success community helped me understand the importance of focusing my consulting business to a niche. They asked thought provoking questions and provided actionable steps to effectively select my niche, identify my ideal clients and market my services. Michael and Sam are knowledgeable, thoughtful and kind individuals who took the time to understand me, my business and my sector so that they could best support and guide me on my consulting journey."
Can definitely recommend Consulting Success if you want to see quick results in your consulting practice. I was able to land a few big projects directly as a result of the Clarity program. Very professional!"
When I launched my strategic consulting business less than 2 years ago, while I held subject matter expertise that could be harnessed to deliver value to ideal clients, I didn’t know anything about running a consulting business. Consulting Success helped me supercharge the launch and beginning stages of my business. I had my first client (which produced six figures of recurring retainer income) on board within 6 months after starting.
I met and learned from many wonderful other consultants and expert advisors. The Clarity Coaching program helped set the stage for the areas of focus for me in my business: elevating my thought leadership through writing, building my team before I needed a team, establishing systems, formulating a productizing of my services strategy, and more on pricing and developing offers.
In short, me personally and my business – and now my team – have been incredibly well served by the Clarity Coaching program in helping fuel the establishment of a solid business which is now positioned very perfectly for growth and scaling, and doing so while maintaining a high quality of life. Thank you Michael and Sam."
Consulting Success was a big influence on me focusing my business on a niche. We doubled in size during the pandemic because of having that focus. I highly recommend either taking their online course or participating in the full coaching program [as I did]."
Consulting Success's content and program is a practical and actionable pathway to six figures. They provide great accountability structure and a numbers-driven way to get you where you want to be. I still use their strategies all the time, they are central to my strategic sales planning."
The Clarity Coaching program was outstanding. I worked with Cloris and she was amazing and so helpful. When I started I knew very little about what it really takes to grow a successful consulting business. I now know so much more and have the clarity, confidence and plan I was looking for! The framework provides a great foundation for the learning, and the 1-1 coaching is so valuable because it helps you put it into action. I loved my time with Consulting Success and would reach out again for more support without hesitation!"
I just wanted to share with you that since joining Clarity Coaching and using your amazing proposal letter – I have landed EVERY engagement with that letter except for one (and that one was because the company was acquired and no longer wanted the engagement).
I am flooded with work right now and the next thing I need to work on with you and my coach is how to strategically balance all of this work flowing in!"
When putting together my discovery offer proposal, I sought help on the Clarity Coaching forum. Based on the feedback and suggestions provided by the coaches, I presented the proposal on a call with my client. Not only did he compliment the proposal, he said YES!!! We kick off in 2 weeks. He's already talking about some future projects. THANK YOU!"
