Have you ever thought of tapping into the consulting market? On immediately’s present, we’re happy to welcome again Cory Mosley, award-winning enterprise development strategist and firm precept of Mosley Technique Group to inform us how most companies can add a income stream by becoming a member of a billion-dollar consulting trade.

Transcription:

Jim Fitzpatrick:
Thanks a lot, Cory, for becoming a member of us immediately.

Cory Mosley:
Thanks for having me. At all times having to be with my ASBN household.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
There you go. So, so many individuals don’t notice, and I do know we talked earlier than, however they may very well be sitting on an amazing income stream if they only think about leaping in or sticking their foot within the waters of consulting, proper? Some folks assume, “Nicely, I’m not a advisor.” However on the finish of the day, they could very nicely be a advisor in the event that they’re serving to others to construct their enterprise and individuals are coming to them and saying, “Hey, how did you get to the place you might be?” Proper? All people desires that good content material.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
So, speak to us slightly about that. I do know you’ve been on the market for nearly 20 years consulting and doing a terrific job and there’s in all probability lots of people take a look at you and, “I wish to do what you’re doing.” Proper?

Cory Mosley:
Sure. Yeah. I might say a pair issues. Primary, after we take into consideration experience, that’s what it’s about. Consulting is in the end about bringing experience to the desk. So, that may be baking cookies. That may be creating methods that create billion greenback corporations. So, I believe the place you’ve gotten plenty of enterprise homeowners proper now, let’s speak concerning the enterprise homeowners first after which we’ll discuss professionals which have left the market. However once you take a look at enterprise homeowners first, you’ve gotten folks seeking to get extra income And create extra income, whether or not streams, or do extra from what they’ve now.

Cory Mosley:
A whole lot of occasions the juice just isn’t well worth the squeeze although. So, I’ll provide you with an instance. A advertising company, proper? They’ve hit a sure ceiling when it comes to the place they’re attending to financially.

Cory Mosley:
Now the reply to development would possibly sometimes be, “Oh, I’ve obtained to rent extra folks. I’ve obtained to rent extra gross sales folks. We’ve obtained to be on the market pitching extra.” The juice won’t be well worth the squeeze there as a result of your ROI on which may not make sense.

Cory Mosley:
Nonetheless, let’s say I’m 1,000,000 greenback company proper now. Nicely, might I begin consulting with smaller companies on exhibiting them grow to be 1,000,000 greenback company? There’s a complete new mannequin there. All I’ve to do is take a look at what I’ve achieved, take a look at my framework, convert that experience right into a consulting services or products, and now I’ve created a income line with out having to do heavy lifting. I didn’t have to purchase one other constructing. I didn’t have to rent 10 extra folks. So, these are a number of the inventive ways in which actual entrepreneurs on the market are you using consulting and the consulting alternatives which can be being created immediately—

Jim Fitzpatrick:
And to your level, it could be 1,000,000 greenback company and also you as an company proprietor assume, “Nicely, I’m not impressed with the million {dollars}. There’s much more available right here. What’s going to make me the specialist?” However you introduced up the purpose, however there could be anyone on the market that both A, desires to get into all of it collectively, or B, has a small one man band and so they’re doing $100,000 a 12 months or $200,000 grand a 12 months and so they’d like to be at 1,000,000 {dollars}.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
And that’s that individual that’s there now says, “Me? I can train anyone one thing. There’s income there.” There are folks, and I agree with you, which can be keen to pay 1000’s of {dollars} for that data to say, “How did you get to the million?” Neglect the 50 million or 100 million. I simply wish to get to the following plateau that you just’re at the moment at.

Cory Mosley:
I inform you, usually the analogy that I take advantage of after I speak to somebody, notably in the event that they’re contemplating becoming a member of a training program or working with me, is I’ll say to them very merely, simply think about you have been in New York and also you have been taking a visit to California. You’re on the point of take a highway journey. And earlier than you began on that journey, you ran into somebody that mentioned, “Oh, you realize what? I simply took that journey. Hey, don’t go down this highway, go right here. Skip this city. Eat at this restaurant.”

Cory Mosley:
That will be advantageous to you. And plenty of occasions, that’s all it takes. Essentially, when you consider consulting, you merely must know slightly bit greater than the individual that you’re working with.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
That’s proper. That’s proper. That’s all it’s.

Cory Mosley:
It’s truly that easy.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
Yeah. Data is energy, as they are saying.

Cory Mosley:
Proper. And having that experience that you would be able to monetize is clearly going to be the following step.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
So, the place you are available, and I do know that there’s folks listening proper now that say, “Nicely, that sounds nice, Cory, however I don’t know be a coach, or I don’t know be anyone that may get on the market as a advisor and seek the advice of with others in my trade. And even although which can be out of my trade that wish to get into my trade, I don’t think about myself a advisor.” Is that the place you are available? Is that the place you may are available and work with these folks to construct their consulting enterprise?

Cory Mosley:
Nicely, one of many issues that we checked out was we checked out how a lot experience and the way a lot alternative there was available in the market. And we realized that there’s an amazing quantity of alternative, whether or not that’s folks that have transformed to earn a living from home, the good resignation, folks which can be leaving. However these folks which can be leaving, we’ve put plenty of emphasis on not having the ability to get entry stage expert employees again to work, however the nice resignation just isn’t about these folks.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
No, no, it’s not.

Cory Mosley:
It’s in the end about excessive expert employees. That’s proper. So, a man who’s an knowledgeable in security, a girl who’s an knowledgeable in social media. Leaving their larger paying jobs or leaving their company conditions and now eager to monetize that. What I notice although, is simply because you’ve gotten a ability, that doesn’t imply you’re good at enterprise.

Cory Mosley:
So, we’ve truly created a program referred to as the BOC, the Enterprise Of Consulting. And it’s a six week accelerator the place we stroll professionals with experience that may be monetized by a course of over that six weeks to actually go from not having a enterprise in any respect, to be able to tackle their first buyer.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
Proper, proper. And a number of the advantages from doing this, it could appear to me, is that you just, on the identical time once you soar into this consultancy scenario, you additionally grow to be an authority in your market. Simply by the mere reality that you just’re placing your self on the market to say, “Hey, I can seek the advice of with these different enterprise folks on the market.” Whether or not you actual property agent or an advert company, or a plumbing contractor, no matter it could be. There’s anyone on the market that desires to do this.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
However then you definitely rise to that stage of, “Oh, this individual, this man or woman actually is aware of what they’re speaking about. They’ve grow to be a advisor on it.” After which it evolves into perhaps writing some blogs on LinkedIn, or who is aware of. Perhaps it’s a ebook that you just put collectively and put on the market, no matter. However then that helps your online business to develop. Does it not?

Cory Mosley:
That’s proper. One of many issues I all the time say, it’s quite simple. Professionals rent different professionals after they need assistance. I’ve by no means met a Fortune 500 CEO that mentioned we grew gross sales by 13{9a40156e65f1c975031c38d16ce42386ea2318092687f39e4e2fa556f2ec6309} by becoming a member of a free Fb group. So, experience is in excessive demand. If it wasn’t, you wouldn’t have the massive corporations like Kinsey, Boston Consulting, all these folks which can be reporting report revenues.

Cory Mosley:
Now you consider the massive boys, you say, how can I get into that? Nicely, you merely have to know monetize what you’ve obtained and ensuring that you just’re compensated correctly for it. As a result of you’ve gotten lots of people on the market which can be beginning in consulting or teaching and that kind of factor which can be busy, booked, and broke.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
Yeah. Busy, booked, and broke, proper.

Cory Mosley:
They don’t believe in how they’re pricing. They don’t have a technique on how they ship their pricing and-

Jim Fitzpatrick:
I’ve seen it. I’ve seen it.

Cory Mosley:
… Gross sales abilities. We skip over that. We go, “I’m a terrific security officer. I can go into a company and make them enhance productiveness 10X.” Nicely, in the event you can’t promote that proper, as a result of it’s not nearly, “Oh, right here it’s in bullet factors.” You could have to have the ability to promote that. So, combining these abilities and that’s why we undergo that over six weeks. We now have to interrupt down the basics of understanding what this enterprise goes to be, understanding who it’s for. How do you shield it? How do you get your self in enterprise and the way do you value and bundle?

Jim Fitzpatrick:
I believe the cool half about this too, is being now that everyone is on-line nearly, whether or not they’re doing their work, they’re speaking with household and associates, no matter it could be. This additionally signifies that your consultancy enterprise might develop in a short time nationwide.

Cory Mosley:
Completely.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
So, if anyone’s in, let’s say we occur to be in Atlanta, however it doesn’t essentially imply that individual you’re teaching or consulting can be in Atlanta. They may very well be in California. They may very well be in Detroit. They may very well be in New York. However they wish to get into your area. Nice. Hit Zoom. And guess what? You’re now doing all your weekly or day by day or no matter you determine is critical when it comes to the variety of occasions that you just’ve obtained to achieve that individual, which is now you’ve obtained the entire nation that you just’re …

Cory Mosley:
Proper. And give it some thought when it comes to worth alternate, proper? So, after we take into consideration Zoom, some issues are going to require you to be on sight, some issues … However that is head not palms. So, we’re not speaking about do demonstrations on jackhammering. That’s that doesn’t pay rather a lot.

Cory Mosley:
Fixing massive issues by your experience can pay extra. So, the wonder is you get to determine how to do this. We have been speaking earlier than we got here on digital camera. There’s a cool sculpting enterprise out in Arizona, they’re one of the crucial profitable at operating their cool sculpting enterprise. They wished extra income alternative, however extra income usually would’ve met opening extra areas.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
I used to be going to say, yeah.

Cory Mosley:
However they mentioned, you realize what? We’re very profitable at what we’re doing. Why don’t we monetize that experience by providing consulting and coaching and training to different cool sculpting companies that aren’t as profitable? They make an additional half 1,000,000 {dollars} a 12 months of their enterprise From content material they’ve recorded and consulting that they do.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
And virtually zero overhead.

Cory Mosley:
With zero overhead. No new workers. No new buildings must go up. No buildouts, no 10 12 months leases.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
No legal responsibility.

Cory Mosley:
No liabilities.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
I’ve obtained a great buddy of mine that was a beauty dentist and he put collectively an exceptional observe. And he had so many individuals that have been within the dental group, “How did you try this? How did you get to that stage that you just’re doing hundreds of thousands of {dollars} in beauty dentistry?” So, he put collectively this little group that he mentioned, “Okay, each quarter we’re going to, if you wish to get into the group.”

Cory Mosley:
Grasp Thoughts, that kind of factor.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
Nicely, immediately it prices $100,000 a 12 months to get into that group.

Cory Mosley:
In all probability a ready checklist.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
There’s a ready checklist as a result of he solely takes 20. So, he’s obtained mainly $2 million a 12 months coming in on his consultancy enterprise.

Cory Mosley:
They usually’re comfortable to pay it.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
That’s proper. As a result of these people, these different dentists got here in and mentioned, “Oh my gosh, I didn’t know you might develop a enterprise like this, being a dentist and the mandatory issues. The place to market, value, rent folks, get referrals. The entire deal.” So, it was value a lot extra to these dentists than $100,000. They’re going to exit and make $1 million that 12 months.

Cory Mosley:
Proper. And that confidence got here, that boldness got here from figuring out the ROI that he was going to supply for folks. And lots of people missed that. A man tells me, “I coach additionally, Cory.” I mentioned, “What do you cost?” He mentioned, “I cost $99 a session.” I mentioned, you may’t be excellent.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
No, no, that’s precisely proper.

Cory Mosley:
As a result of that equation doesn’t match. The ROI must be there. So, large alternative in that space.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
We’re clearly within the publishing enterprise right here with a couple of totally different platforms and there was one among these platforms that we actually appeared as much as, they’d 100,000 subscribers throughout North America. We use them because the mentor to say, “If we might solely be this group proper right here in the future with our totally different our totally different media retailers.”

Jim Fitzpatrick:
So, I occurred to name the man, the proprietor. And I mentioned, “Hey, do you do any consulting with different publishing corporations? We’re type of what you might be within the small enterprise and automotive sectors.” And he mentioned, “I truly do.” And I mentioned, “Oh, that’s incredible. What could be the following steps?” He mentioned, “Right here’s the starter. I cost $2,000 an hour. Okay?”

Jim Fitzpatrick:
I mentioned, “Wow, okay, $2,000 an hour.” He mentioned, “I would like you to write down down earlier than we meet in that hour, each single query you’ve gotten that you just assume I can assist you with and I’ll attempt to reply all these questions on your $2,000.”

Jim Fitzpatrick:
And I’m like, “Wow. Okay.” And have you learnt? That’s precisely what we did and the data we gathered from him was simply extremely precious. So, way more than the 2 grand. Proper. And he mentioned, “If you wish to do it once more and fill within the blanks, otherwise you’ve obtained some questions left over, or what have you realize, we are able to do it once more.” He mentioned, it’s not my core enterprise, clearly. However that’s simply because so many individuals have come to me and mentioned, “Oh my gosh, we’ve obtained so many questions.” He mentioned, “And that’s the best way I work.”

Cory Mosley:
And you realize why that’s?

Jim Fitzpatrick:
Yeah, he’s profitable.

Cory Mosley:
No, no, no. However as a result of professionals rent different professionals after they need assistance. They don’t nickel and dime it. You didn’t go, “You understand what, what can I get for $500?” $2,000? Oh my goodness. What am I going to do? I can’t.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
We centered on what we might make with that data and never what it could value us to get it. It was a no brainer. And it was a cellphone dialog. He actually took a lunch hour and mentioned, “Nicely, throughout this lunch hour, I’m going to make $2,000 and hopefully Jim and Bridget Fitzpatrick can profit from my data.”

Jim Fitzpatrick:
And we did. And there’s so many different folks on the market which can be listening to Cory and I’ve this dialogue that say, “Wow, I might try this.” There are different folks which can be, are on the lookout for the data that you just maintain and it doesn’t imply must be a Fortune 500 firm CEO or sit a C-suite. It could actually imply that you just perhaps you’re reducing hair, perhaps you’re a actual property agent, perhaps you’re an insurance coverage agent. Perhaps you might be any type of skilled on the market and assume to your self, “Who else would profit from the place I’m?” And also you’d be shocked as to how many individuals there are on the market. And it simply takes slightly bit of promoting and promotion to place your self on the market to do this. I’m positive you in all probability go over that in your course, proper?

Cory Mosley:
I do. And you realize what? A lot of that is free. I simply had a gathering final week with an organization valued at $31 billion and I’m pitching them to do some consulting work for them. $31 billion. How did I get them? I went to LinkedIn. I used a bit of software program that gave me their electronic mail deal with. I had one thing of worth to say within the message and I despatched the message and I obtained a gathering.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
Wow, that’s incredible, yeah.

Cory Mosley:
Proper. I didn’t want a billboard. I didn’t want 1,000,000 greenback advert finances. I wanted one thing of worth and the gumption to go after that. Oh, this man, $31 billion valuation, he’s not going to speak to me. Sure, he’s. And sure he did.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
That’s proper. Congratulations on that. So, for those that are on the market that you just’re considering, “Nicely, how am I going to develop my enterprise?” And to Cory’s level, is it going to value me 1000’s or lots of of 1000’s of {dollars} to do this? Open up one other location, get extra desks, rent extra folks, spend extra in advertising. The reply is it doesn’t must be in the event you’d open up your thoughts slightly bit and consider your self as a advisor within the trade that you just’re in. Doesn’t imply you bought to put off your individual enterprise. It simply means it’s important to add to it.

Jim Fitzpatrick:
I don’t care who you might be. All people has slightly further time a day, and it’s important to look at the moment and say, “What would this time be value?” Whether or not it’s an hour, 45 minutes, an hour and a half, two hours a day, to say, “Wow, that is precious time to a different enterprise proprietor in my area that will like to know the way I overcome these objections or how I construct my enterprise.” To the purpose that you just’re at the moment.
