Hi, my name's Jen Redwoods, and I'm from London. I started the program in October 2016. The reason why I decided to take the course is because I'm a cosmetic practitioner by trade, and although I really love my job, I was working really long hours. And obviously your income's capped because there's only so many patients that you can be seeing in a day.
Last year I decided I wanted to work very differently. I wanted more free time, that was the big thing for me. I wanted to be able to work from anywhere in the world, and I wanted to be able to increase my income without limits if I decide I want to do that.
It's probably taken me a little while longer than most to complete the course and that's because I'm not a techy person. I knew nothing about digital media so it's been a little bit challenging for me. Although I've learnt a lot, so it's been brilliant. I wanted to stay in the niche because I've got so many contacts in the industry and I want to be able to offer a service to get them more clients. So the digital media part of the course and the Facebook ads part of the course was really good for me, and that's one of the reasons why I signed up for the course in the first place.
I'm literally just at a stage right now where I'm able to take on paying clients, and that's all down to the knowledge from Sam's course. It's also given me a lot of confidence, so I think anybody that wanted to get into the consulting industry, this course is a definite must.
