Hey everybody. I'm Craig Rhodes out of Greensboro, North Carolina, and I've just went through the Consulting Accelerator program. Before the program, I said I'm still in higher education, and while I'm very successful at it, I just didn't feel like it was my calling or that I was actually making the kind of money that I really wanted to make to give my family the options financially that I really wanted to have. And so, I always thought about consulting and I know I needed to do something different in order to change my situation.
So, I did order the Accelerating program and I have to say that during the program, I just found that it just sparked so many things that I never thought about in terms of just strategy and overall processes of what it takes for a successful consulting business. And so, I mean, I thought the power grid was very powerful. The production cycle and knowing that our life go in cycles. Ways to look at the niche, ways to test the niche before you even get to the Facebook and the digital things. To me, the first four weeks is just a transformation of thinking and I just really enjoyed that reading and reflecting upon myself and how I did things and how I thought about things.
Now, after kind of getting to the end of it, I just really appreciate it, it is worth the money. I can't say that I've made a lot of money, I'm still trying to perfect my niche, but nevertheless, I know that once I really get that part tight, that I have all the other tools to make it really successful. So, I still recommend it, just weeks one through four, and just changing the way that you think about consulting, whether you make money right away or next year or whenever you get a chance to really identify your niche and work with it. But this is a great program. I am forever grateful to Sam and his staff.
