Join Consultant for Hire
I get it. Early on in my consulting journey, I undersold and mostly UNDER-VALUED my expertise. I gave away so much free time as a consultant: free consultations, multiple meetings to determine a contract that may or may not ever happen...it was painful.
It is possible to get paid for what you know. It is possible to advise an institution on the change that you know the world needs to see.
Two years ago, I developed a program. Current consultants were reaching out to me left and right to chat about what they were doing. They were worried about pricing strategies. They had questions about where to turn with their consulting work. They wanted some guidance on their proposals.
So, I took a step back, hired a marketing coach, and what began as just an idea in a notebook is now an 8-week intensive for consultants who are ready to take it up a notch in their consulting practice.

BIG shout out to LaTrenda because I just landed my first paid consulting contract on a dream project!! I wouldn't have had the confidence to go for it and create the proposal (and ask for the money I did) without the Consultant for Hire bootcamp

Tammy, T3 Media and Consulting
Your facilitator for this workshop will be me, LaTrenda, Lead Navigator of LaTrenda Consulting.
I have successfully grown a six-figure consulting firm, doubling my 9-5 income in my first year of business. I maintained that growth, even when I took two months off to be with my newborn daughter (twice).
I have more flexibility to do the things that I want on my own time, to take off when I want, to work when I want. And I can do that on my own terms. You know why--> My consulting firm.
What is the cost of the program?There is an investment of $1200 to participate in this program. The lead facilitator normally charges a per-hour fee for consulting that is more than $200. To get access to the expertise of the lead facilitator, live, with at least 8 hours of instruction, 20+ hours of preparation for the course and the cohort, there is a cost for the information.
So that's the cost. Are there payment plans?Yes, if you are accepted into the program, you can arrange to pay the program off during the course of the program.
What do you mean if I am accepted? I have to apply?Yes, there is an application for this program. After reviewing the results of the 30 consultants that have participated in the cohort, those that have been excelled in this opportunity, fit a particular criteria. For instance, they have had pay for expertise opportunities before; they have had contracts. To set you up for success, we want to ensure that you have also had an opportunity, outside of a full-time role, to be consulted on your expertise.
Is this program refundable?Due to the nature of this program, it is not refundable.
