Would you like to know what separates a high 6 or 7-figure consultant who has a waiting list of clients who are drawn to him or her almost magnetically …and a struggling consultant who lives hand to mouth, month to month?
Would you like to know what separates a consultant who controls their schedule, makes a great impact doing what they are good at, and earns enough money to take time off and enjoy it with their family, traveling, golfing, skiing, or just lying on the beach…and one who has to work 70-80 hours per week just to pay the mortgage?
Would you like to know what separates a consultant who happily turns away potential clients because they’re not the PERFECT fit…and a consultant who HAS to take every client they can get, regardless of how time-consuming and hair-pullingly irritating they will be because “beggars can’t be choosers”?
Well the thing that separates them is pretty simple, actually.

Let me tell you a quick story that will illustrate the difference …
Martin was 10 months into his consulting business and still found himself staring at his email inbox hoping for good news.
It was a Thursday afternoon. Ping! A new email jumped to the top of Martin’s inbox.
Martin was hoping it was Delta FX, a new prospective client he sent a proposal to. But it was his sister “Please bring a fruit plate for dessert, see you Sunday!”
Martin had checked his email at least 15 times that day, and the day before, and the day before, hoping that Delta FX would sign off and cut him a check that would cover his “nut” for the month.
But it had been over a week…radio silence.
And Martin was starting to squirm. Delta FX was really the only deal in his pipeline that he thought had a good chance of closing. The others were long shots at best.
Martin started to mutter “What did I do wrong? What should I have done differently? I told them all about my expertise. They know I used to work at one of the major national manufacturers. Ted Smith even introduced me to them and told them I was the guy to help them!”
But when Martin sent the proposal (that he’d slaved over for DAYS) to Jerry, all he got was “Thanks, we’ll let you know.”
And when the waiting got to much to bear, Martin cracked and fired off a email…
“Jerry, I’m just checking in to see if you had any questions about the proposal?”
Nada. The silence was deafening. And the things is…Martin had heard that silence before. In fact, this was par for the course.
Here’s how it always went down…
Somebody he used to work with would refer him. Martin would send the prospect an email. And another. And another. And another. Maybe they’d eventually write back and say, “Sure, send us a proposal.” Then Martin would send one.
Then...the waiting. And waiting and waiting. Martin could feel himself getting older as he waited every time!
Oh sure, he’d landed a couple of clients. But landing one was almost as bad as NOT landing one!
The workload was almost always WAY more than he anticipated. He never seemed to be on the same page with the client. Never truly saw eye to eye. Scope creep, misunderstandings, duplication of work, disagreements about objectives.
Weren’t there any EASY clients out there? Why did they all have to be such a pain?
Martin was starting to wonder if he should just tuck his tail between his legs and go beg for his old corporate job... “I’m sure Bill Johnson would just LOVE that.” Bill was Martin’s old cubicle mate who had chuckled at Martin when he told him he was starting his own practice.
“Why on earth would you give up a secure job with benefits to go on your own? You’ll crack under the pressure, man. I give it 3 months...tops!”
It would be humiliating to admit Bill was right. But what was he going to do??
If Delta FX didn’t close, he’d have to go back (if they would even take him back!). Or his wife Tiffany would have to take that admin JOB to make ends meet until he could land another client.
And he had no idea how or when that would happen.
That’s Martin’s story.
And I’ve heard variations on that story about 387 times in my career. It’s the story that many consultants end up living. And eventually they quit … or come to accept it as “just the way it is.”
“This is just the life of a consultant, I guess. You work 70 hours a week for ungrateful clients just to pay the bills. And every few months you have to scramble to find more clients.”
Feast or famine. Rollercoaster consulting. Up and down. No consistency. No stability. No security. No joy. No fun.
But there is another story.
Martin’s story does not have to be yours.
Your consulting story can be very different.
In Fact, in as Little as 25 Days, Elliot’s Story Could Be Your Story…
“I had been bored and disenfranchised with corporate life.
I was offered an opportunity to leave the company I had been with, move back to Northern California and be part of a turnaround.
I thought that would be the cure. It wasn't, in fact, I was even unhappier. I am a pretty stoic guy but one night I came home, miserable, stressed, and angry that I made this move and found myself just as unfulfilled.
I sat down at the kitchen table and just lost it.
Julie (my wife) said it was time, for all these years I had been betting on someone else, it was now time to bet on myself. She liked that better.
I had wanted to make the jump for years but always found a reason not to. At the time I made the move, we had 2 in college and one more ready in just a few years. We just purchased a large home in Northern California. It was scary.
I look back now and wonder how I ever lasted so long in corporate life. Now I wake up every day excited to go to the office, I work with and for people whom I care about, who I am aligned with, and admire.
I make more money (which I didn't think was possible) and I find myself having experiences that I'd would have never had.
For example, sitting at the kitchen table of a Hollywood celebs house on the top of Mulholland Drive, traveling with clients’ friends to Malaysia, or heading to Lisbon for a Mastermind group.
It's all pretty amazing.”

What’s the difference between Martin and Elliot?
What’s the difference between a consultant scraping by on the skin of his teeth...and a consultant who has a pipeline full of prospects and a loaded roster of high-paying clients?
Here’s the difference…
Elliot has a system which clearly identifies his ideal client - companies who are eager to hire a consultant with exactly his expertise. Clients who are easy to work for, happy to work with him, and grateful for the results he achieves for them
Elliot has a method for positioning his consulting expertise so precisely that virtually no other consultant can make the specific promises he can. He is the BEST choice. He’s not a “commodity consultant”
Elliot has a system that ensure he gets paid handsomely (which is essential for clients to respect you)…yet doesn’t scare off potential buyers with “sticker shock”
Elliot has a LinkedIn presence that’s more than an online resume. A presence that starts conversations with his ideal clients and leads to paying engagements. Most are mystified as to why and how it gets him so many clients so fast and so easily.
Elliot has a proven template for generating proposals that gets clients to respond in hours or days...not weeks or months. Elliot has eliminated the frustrating “don’t call us, we’ll call you” syndrome.
Elliot has a proven and simple Magnetic Messaging system that draws perfect clients into his orbit.
Elliot has a system in place that keeps his pipeline full. He has a waiting list. Rather than worrying about where his next client comes from, he often turns away prospects because they are not PERFECT for him!
If you were reading closely, you’ll now understand the difference between Martin’s story and Elliot’s story….the story that could be yours.
A system. Momentum
In fact, the Momentum System is guaranteed to make Elliot’s story your story in as little as 25 days, if you can promise one thing.
What must you promise? I’ll get to that in a moment. But first that guarantee I mentioned...
Momentum website running on a smartphone, tablet, and laptop
The Momentum “Results in 25 Days or It’s Free” Guarantee
If you work with (or plan to transition into working with) companies, associations or non-profit clients solving valuable problems... And if you take consistent action and follow my recommendations, within 25 days of enrolling in Momentum...
You’ll have at least 3-4 new highly-qualified leads in your pipeline
You’ll know exactly who your ideal client is...and isn’t
You’ll feel 100% confident about how to target and attract your ideal client
You will have a marketing message that will get the attention and interest of your ideal client so they respond to your messages and want to speak with you about how you can help them.
You will know how to build a repeatable, efficient marketing machine that delivers ideal clients consistently
You’ll know how to package, position and price your consulting services to increase your revenue by 40% to 300%
You’ll know how to write winning proposals faster and easier
You’ll see your pipeline of ideal customers filling up before your eyes
...in 25 days or less or we’ll personally work with you until you do...or give you a full refund whichever you prefer.
Now back to the promise.
You must promise to focus and follow the system.
And here’s why this is so important. There are so many things you COULD be doing to grow your consulting business.
And it seems like 15 new shiny objects pop up every week.
Think of it this way... you probably have developed systems, procedures and methods for solving your clients’ problems, right? Don’t you hate it when THEY get distracted or side-tracked and fail to follow YOUR recommendations?
Same applies here. This system is guaranteed to work...if you work it and stay focused. OK, that covers the promise I need you to make.
So now let’s talk about proof. Here are the words of several of my high-income consultant clients. Clients who have followed my directions and transformed their consulting careers...
As you read these reviews, pay particular attention to the bolded text…
I found the Momentum course great, and I've only gone through part of it so far. The thing I needed most, was help with generating quotes for projects. I had multiple new prospective consulting clients and I used the lessons from your course to generate effective quotes that helped seal several short and long term consulting contracts generating over $40,000 in new and ongoing consulting work!”

Cutter Consulting Group, LLC
Hi Michael, Your advice on how to obtain a renewal of a 12 month marketing and consulting client in Pennsylvania worked. I followed the script and concepts you provided during the last call and the client agreed to move forward. That’s a $30,000 annualized sale.”
Earline Lagueruela Earline Lagueruela,
I have been working through my strategic offer and "Revenue Roadmap Program" with Michael. I met with a couple CEOs and both asked for a proposal on a next stage of work. Within 3 days I had a confirmed project that was for $55k and a verbal yes on another for $33.5k.”

Josh Canova Josh Canova, CEO Pow Wow Growth Strategies

Michael's suggestions pushed me beyond what I thought was possible. We're getting 3x more leads than before, we have a lead generation process in place that works consistently, and we're working with world-class clients as advisors in a leveraged way. Working with Consulting Success® is an investment, but it's a very worthwhile one.”

Tsahi Levent-levi Tsahi Levent-levi,

Van Hyfte Greg Van Hyfte,
Within a few weeks of working with Michael I went from making $24,000 from one project to $64,000. I feel so much more focused and my team tells me they’ve noticed a big difference too. I have a lot more clarity around what I need to be doing each and every week with my marketing. Michael has really helped me to get results and I’m looking forward to significantly growing my business this year.”

Michael's expertise has provided us with an understanding of how to gain more customers and communicate a unique value proposition that addresses their problems. As a result, we have expanded our client base! He will make your company more successful!”
Gary Kyle Gary Kyle,
Federal Contracting Consultant
Former Principal Booz Allen Hamilton

Dauwn Parker Dauwn Parker,
Fundraising and CRM Consultant
Former Director City of Hope Research Center
I needed someone who had already crossed the bridge to shout from the other side to let me know it was safe. Thanks to Michael's coaching, I was able to reshape my consulting and coaching business and to land 30,000 Euros of contracts within 4 months. It took a lot of work, it was not sudden, but I know it was the best path to take to grow my business now and going forward.”
Rudy Viard Rudy Viard,

It’s a no brainer."
Damien Wilpitz Damien Wilpitz,
Lab Research Consultant
Former Research Manager Harvard Medical School
I highly recommend Momentum for new consultants. I have worked at corporations for nearly 15-years and decided to make the leap and become a consultant recently. After a few months, I realized that while I have spent years helping my employers achieve success, I did not have the proper systems in place for myself. Momentum helped me to identify missteps I was making all while getting into the mindset of an elite consultant."

Principal, Marji Media
Your information helped me land a client that will pay me in advance for a whole year!”

Did You Notice (Again) What Separates These Successful Consultants from Struggling Consultants Like Martin?
Templates and Scripts
Martin had no system. Or, more accurately, he had a system that he (and many other consultants) have proved DOES NOT WORK.
Yet Martin kept doing the same thing over and over and hoping for different results.
But the testimonials from the successful consultants above show, that when you follow a proven SYSTEM, your story changes.

Do you want theory and hunches and shiny objects? Or do you want a proven “by-consultants-for-consultants” SYSTEM for adding 6 figures to your income?
This is no college class in theory or philosophy. Nor is it a collection of random ideas from someone ‘teaching’ how to consult who has never actually consulted before. You’ll learn proven strategies, approaches, techniques and timeless principles that have been tested. Tested by me and my consultant clients...at the front lines with hundreds of organizations around the world.
And produced results. If the testimonials above don’t convince you that it will get you results, then my Guarantee should.
Try it for 25 days and if you don’t feel you’ve gotten everything I promised in the guarantee, I’ll refund every penny.
Why Should You Believe Me?
(And Why Advice from Others Might Hurt You More than Help You)
These days advice is everywhere. You can Google any subject and get all the advice you could ever consume on any topic. Free and fast.
And most of it is worthless.
You can waste a lot of time consuming and implementing the WRONG advice.
So, to survive in today’s business world, you must make sure you’re getting the RIGHT advice... not wasting your time on “almost-right” or “dead-wrong” advice.
What do I mean by wasting your time on “almost right” advice? Well, if you want to create online funnels Russell Brunson is the undisputed champ. For product launch sequences Jeff Walker is king. Want to become a coach or spiritual healer working with consumers, Sam Ovens and Russ Ruffino have that mastered. Facebook ads, Keith Krance. Webinars, Joel Erway.
All of those subjects are undoubtedly important specialities and you can find plenty of people who have become successful in each area respectively.
But if you want to become a successful consultant, most of that advice will hurt you not help you.
Consumers Buy In Very Different Ways from Organizations and Companies. Most business advice is very focused on selling to consumers. But consumers buy in a very different way than organizations and companies buy.
Buying a pair of yoga pants, a massage treatment, or even shelling out $150 to see a counselor requires a completely different mindset compared with the B2B buyer investing tens, hundreds of thousands... even millions of dollars.
And while reaching consumers through Instagram, Facebook and the latest social media tool can work well, it’s not where buyers of consulting services ‘hang out’.
Selling consulting services requires a different approach.
This is your opportunity to learn from someone who has achieved EXACTLY what YOU want to achieve and helped hundreds of others LIKE YOU achieve it as well
As of this writing, 6,037 consultants in over 100 countries have studied my methods. More are added every day. And I’ve received email after email about how they have...
Successfully transitioned from employee to independent consultant
Gone from zero to well over six figures in annual revenues
Gained confidence about who their ideal clients are and how to effectively and efficiently target them
Know how to structure their day to be extremely productive, getting more of the RIGHT stuff done each day
Increased their consulting fees by 40% to 300%
I’ve helped hundreds add six and seven figures to their annual revenues.
Whether you desire to earn a solid six-figures a year as an independent consultant, or if you prefer to build a consulting firm with staff, Momentum is the only proven plan I know of to help you achieve that.

But Time is Running Out
(Not on my program... but on your career)
Is consulting about to get Uber-ized? Is it about to undergo a dramatic shift where only the savviest and sharpest consultants survive and the rest get swept out to sea?
According to Inc Magazine, yes...
Here's the issue: Festering underneath myriad consulting offerings, methodologies, tools, and firms lie some vulnerabilities that will eventually unravel the consulting business model—the same kind of dramatic disruption that other industries like photography, publishing, health care, and many others have experienced.
An industry becomes susceptible to disruption when it becomes entrenched in its longstanding solutions and financial structure.
Disruptive innovations provide simpler or more elegant solutions to existing problems, enabled by new technology and often at a lower cost. Think portable calculators versus computers, Amazon versus bookstores, Netflix versus Blockbuster, or digital cameras versus film.
…consulting is not immune to the dynamics of disruption.
There’s a lot to digest there, but here is what I feel is the bottom line for consultants like you (and me)...
If you keep doing things the old way, you’re going to get swept away by the forces of disruption. If you cling to old, inefficient ways of finding new clients...you’ll get swept away. If you continue to work with less-than-ideal clients...you’ll get swept away.
If you continue to use old methods of proposing to and closing new clients...you’ll get swept away. If you do not install efficient, repeatable, consistent marketing systems...you’ll get swept away.
Finally, most of the studies I’ve read say two things about the consulting industry…
1. There are more consultants than ever
2. Clients are demanding results-based fees
Which means you’ll have more competition for clients… and those clients will be more demanding.
So, it’s more important than ever to have SYSTEMS in place to attract IDEAL clients who will pay you handsomely.
If you’re a “commodity consultant” you’re doomed. You must stand out. You must be seen as a leader. You must convince prospects that you alone can deliver the results they want.
Fail to do that and all you’ll get is, “Thanks, we’ll get back to you.” And weeks of silence like Martin. Don’t be like Martin.

Should You Invest in Momentum?
A good way to decide is to ask this question...
What is it worth to you to achieve your consulting goal?
For example, what is your income goal?Is it $300,000? $750,000? $1.5 million? Whatever the number is, imagine you could achieve that goal in 12 months. If you could do that, how would your life change?
Would you spend more time at home with your kids?
Would you take more vacations and travel the world more?
Would you pay off your mortgage or credit card debt?
Would you fire some bad clients because you no longer NEED them to pay the bills?
Would you experience more joy in your work doing more of what you WANT to do and less of what you HAVE to do?
Would you be able hire employees and improve someone else’s life?
Would you be able to give to the charitable causes that are close to your heart and help others less fortunate than you?
Again, let’s say you could achieve that in the next 12 months… Would you give up just 10% of ONE client’s fee to get all that? Not EVERY client’s fee, mind you, just ONE.
Let’s say your average client fee is $20,000. Would you give up 10% of that to achieve all those goals listed above? Most consultants I know would say YES.
Because of all the proven scripts, templates, trainings and best practices included in Momentum the value is well over $5000.

But let’s take it a step further. If by the end of 25 days, you don’t get everything I promise in my guarantee...
You’ll add 4 at least highly-qualified leads to your pipeline
You know exactly who your ideal client is...and isn’t (and you have said goodbye to prospects that will never convert and know how to double down on the ones who will)
You feel 100% confident about how to target and attract your ideal client. The very next time you approach and ideal client for a conversation, you’ll feel confident and secure rather than queasy)
You know how to package and price your consulting services to maximize your revenue and will have repackaged and re-priced your offerings to earn 25% to 50% more revenue.
You are able to write winning proposals faster and easier. The time and anxiety you spend on a proposal drops by a minimum of 25% and your win rate increases significantly.
You see your pipeline of ideal customers filling up before your eyes — By day 25 your pipeline has increased by at least 20% and you are feeling the momentum in your business and seeing the progress improve each day.
We’ll personally work with you until you do, or we’ll give you a refund, whichever you prefer.
How many new clients could you add? Our best students add 5-10 highly-qualified leads to their pipeline in the first 25 days. So, I’m very confident in making this guarantee...
AGAIN, if you follow the Momentum marketing outreach process and do not add a MINIMUM of 3-4 qualified leads in the first 25 days, I’ll give you two options...
1. Email us and we’ll personally help you until you do get at least 3-4 leads
2. We’ll give you a full refund
Whichever you prefer.
But I think you can imagine how... if you got everything I’m promising from my program... you could easily add three to four paying clients in the first 25 days. And that would pay for Momentum many times over.
And the benefits of Momentum do not stop after 25 days, of course. These are tools, principles and strategies you will use in your practice for years to come to land new clients and generate higher revenue.
“But my average client fee is $50,000,” you say? Great. Then the ROI you’ll realize from Momentum is even higher.
Consider that Momentum is probably less than you spend on cable TV and streaming services every year! It’s probably less than some consultants spend on Starbucks every year.

And Here’s Another Maybe Even More Important Question for You
What’s the cost of NOT achieving your consulting goals? What if, like Martin, you keep spinning your wheels? What if, next year, two years from now, or five years from now, your income has not increased? Or worse, due to increased competition and pricing pressures, your income has DECREASED?
Will you have to take another “corporate” job?
Will your spouse have to take up the slack by getting another job?
Will your children have to make do with less?
Will you have to put off those vacations plans yet another year?
Why risk it?
Without a proven plan for achieving your goals, chances are you will be in the same... or worse... spot next year... two years from now... five years from now.
Why not start to putting proven systems, processes and methods in place TODAY... and add 5, 6 or even 7-figures of revenue to your practice?

Who Should NOT Invest in Momentum?
I’ve mentioned this a few times, but it bears repeating…
Most consultants are not great at following systems. They’re great at creating systems for their clients to follow. But they’re often bullheaded when it comes to following systems in their OWN business!
If you’re the type of consultant who would look at a proven, guaranteed system for generating an additional 5 or 6 figures of consulting income and say…
I’m not going to follow the system, I’m going to tweak it and improve it and customize it...and keep following my own system for generating more clients…
...then Momentum is probably not right for you.
Also, if you are not a consultant who solves problems for companies, organizations or non-profit agencies, Momentum is not right for you. Massage therapists and life coaches and tennis instructors should not apply. This is for consultants who solve meaningful problems for organizations.
But if you are that kind of consultant with serious chops who wants to finally “crack the code” on generating a consistent flow of high-paying, joy-to-work-with, grateful clients... and finally enjoy all the perks of a successful practice you’ve dreamed of…
Then click here to give Momentum a try:
Click Here to Get Started
Remember, if after 25 days you don’t feel that…

You know how to package and price your consulting services to maximize your revenue
You are able to write winning proposals faster and easier
