Hi, my name is Mick Walsh. I'm based in London, and I'm a student of Sam Ovens' Consulting Accelerator Course. Currently working in Investment Banking, I'm in a technology role, and have been doing so for the past 12 or 13 years, and I got to the point where I'm very keen for a change in career, and I wanted to start my own company up. But, it's important to me to minimize any interruptions.
I think because I have wife and two children to support, and so, I was looking around for a course that would help me get started. I will start something up in parallel. I came across Sam's advert on Facebook and I was very impressed with what he had to say. I had a bit of a concern over the price of the course. It's more than I've invested in any course before. You know, there's a lot of courses out there that I don't think deliver the same level of quality and I was concerned this might be the case here, but I listened to the reviews. I was impressed with what people had to say.
And I'm really glad that I made that commitment because every section I do in the course, I feel like that's worth the cost of the course alone. And it certainly starts with the mindset piece, and everything he teaches you along the way, but even aside from that, you're actually given these processes on how to ... a sale script, for example on how to get your clients, the strategy sessions, the funnels, the Facebook ads, and then down to operating your business. So, the legal documents around formation of the company, the contract between you and your client, I mean, these things alone, each one of those could easily cost you the cost of the course.
So, I'm hugely impressed. I feel like it has delivered exactly what I needed, which was a business-in-a-box, and it's almost like jumping ahead, probably three to five years of where I'd be, I think, if I went out there and did this on my own. So, my position, working a job where I need to maintain some income, that's exactly what I needed. I'm really pleased I did it, and I hope to be back here reporting some positive results in the near future.
