I help startup CEOs get funding by crafting a compelling sales presentation.
My day is a combination of attracting new clients, converting prospects to clients and delivering on the consulting and coaching clients I have. 1/3 of my time is working on my Facebook ads campaign to attract the right clients i.e. Tech CEOs who need funding; 1/3 is having phone calls and strategy sessions with them to see where they are and where they want to go and what the roadblocks are to see how I can help. The remaining time is coaching them on how to sell themselves, their company and product.
Here's the first step for professionals
Find out who you can help and what problem you can solve for them. That is they key to being a consultant. Then find someone to coach you on building a coaching business.
