Description

For many people, starting a consulting business is something they've thought about doing at one or another. But just like most entrepreneurial endeavours, many don't get started because they don't know the way to find real success. And many times, they don't know anyone who is a "successful" consultant to learn from.In my experience, there are a few well known names out there that come to mind when you're talking about becoming a decent consultant.



Today's guest is one of those names.Michael has been a consultant since the age of 19 and since then, he's been honing his craft and helping others along the way. Since 2007, he and his cousin Sam have empowered 34,000 people from over 80 countries with their company Consulting Success.To Michael and Sam, success is not about numbers or material gains. Instead, it's about being in a place where money isn't a concern anymore. It's the ability to go out to enjoy a meal or a trip with family. It’s having the certainty you need – in an increasingly uncertain world – to take charge of your future. It's the freedom to live life on your own terms.If consulting is something you've thought about getting started with, I'd highly suggest getting to know Michael in this chat with Veronica and me.



Enjoy!
