  1. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic fallout, the number of UK redundancies this year is estimated at 134,000 so far, though many more positions are expected to head that way over the coming months, too.

     If you’ve been made redundant during 2020, you’re not alone.

     But you’re probably wondering - what next?

     Sadly, at a time of increased redundancy, employment opportunities are fewer.

     Times like this are made from a cruel mix of less full-time employment positions available, and many more people scrambling to win them. Not a position any jobseeker wishes to find themselves in.

     I know this all sounds bleak, but bear with me because there is a solution to your problems.

     As the saying goes; ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’.

    For those willing to step outside of their comfort zone, there are a lot of opportunities available.

    Though many full-time jobs no longer exist, it doesn’t mean that the requirements of those jobs have disappeared altogether.

    It’s common that companies no longer need someone for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week but that they instead need someone to step in and take care of a few of the former-role responsibilities.

     Enter: Consultants.

     A consultant’s role is increasingly important during times like this, and companies are clambering over each other to find the right person.

    That person could be you in as little as 6 weeks’ time if you take the right, and relevant, steps today.

    My 6 week fast-track bootcamp will have you ready to work as an HR Consultant in just 6 weeks. We work through everything from company set up through to how to find clients in just 6 short weeks. The course is intense, at times, but it will get you where you need to be.

    I know, taking the Leap into Consulting™ can seem intimidating. There is a lot to think about but my tried and tested method gets results.

    Think of it this way: in 6 weeks’ time, what are your chances of finding - and landing - your perfect new job?

     If you join my Bootcamp, alongside it’s other go-getter delegates, I’m sure you’ll find your chances are better than you ever could have hoped for.

  2. Do you want to earn more money while working from home?

    Do you want to earn more money while working from home?
    Do you want to earn more money while working from home?
    You're not alone...

    I know what you’re thinking - it doesn't sound real. But I promise you it can be.

    In fact, I set out on this very journey 26 years ago and found I could make it happen much more easily than I had imagined. Since then, I have helped countless people do the same.

    The good news? You can do it too. The answer lies in consulting. Consultants often out-earn salaried workers within the first couple of years.

    The bad news? Making the Leap into Consulting™ can be a bit of a minefield. New consultants often find themselves lost for a few years; losing money while they try to figure out the business side of things, how to price themselves, or how to find clients.

    But, as it’s 2020 and I think we all need a little more good news in our lives, I’m here to tell you that becoming a consultant doesn’t have to take years to figure out. Many new consultants just need a helping hand and some robust advice to ensure the entire process happens much quicker.

    In fact, I can help you do it in just 6 weeks.

    My 6-week Fast Track HR Consultants Bootcamp focusses on a few specific steps you need to take in order to reach success. Many others have been through the Bootcamp and come out as successful owners of a consultancy business.

    Have a look at some of our recent 5 star reviews here.

    We focus on mindset, motivation and yes - money.

    Six weeks is all it takes to change your life. If you’re serious about making it happen, join us.

    Our next Bootcamp starts mid September - it's self paced with group coaching once a week.

    Find out more about the virtual bootcamp here.

    If you'd like a chat with me about how this might work for you just book a time in my diary, I'd love to help you become a consultant.

     

  3. Now is a time of exceptional opportunity for Consultants. Here’s why:

    You know that age old saying, ‘There’s no time like the present’. It’s never rung truer for HR Consultants than right now.

    Now is the time to Leap into Consulting™.

    Given current global circumstances, this might go against what you think.

    So - why now?

    With ongoing lockdowns, furloughs and struggling businesses, becoming a Consultant can feel like a risky move. But the truth is we are living through a time where all the elements have aligned for HR consultants to succeed.

     Here is why:

    1. Businesses are crying out for external help. With many full-time staff on furlough or facing redundancy there are resource gaps that need to be filled. Hiring a consultant helps businesses do this while they remain in recovery mode.

    2. Full-time HR staff who are still working have spent much of the last few months firefighting. A lot (if not all) of their attention has been focused on COVID-19 and its implications. But that doesn’t mean that other HR functions don’t need attention. They do. And consultants are perfectly placed to address them.

    3. At a time like this, businesses need to hire people who are used to change, people who know how to work in uncertain circumstances, and people who can jump right into the unknown to make things happen. Hello consultants, this is our forte!

    It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out on your consultancy journey, or if you’ve been working as a consultant for a while.

    What does matter is your next steps into establishing yourself and finding an income. And the time is now. This exceptional opportunity for HR Consultants won’t last for long, so now is the time to push forward, take the Leap into Consulting™, and to make things happen.

    September has always been one of the busiest months in the consulting diary so you need to have clarity and be ready for this.

    Here at Leap into Consulting™ we have the perfect 6 week course to make sure you’re prepared, up-to-speed, and able to take advantage of this window.

    Have you spent the last few months during lockdown working on your business? Great!

    Have you spent the last few months juggling everything you can at home without putting any effort into your consultancy? That’s ok.

    Have you found yourself furloughed or redundant but with a strong desire to get back into the working world? Fantastic.

    Our HR Consultant Bootcamp will ensure that in just 6 weeks you’re ready to jump into consulting and to say ‘yes!’ To all the amazing opportunities that are waiting for you.

    But time is of the essence. Say yes to our 6 week bootcamp now. The course starts on 3rd August 2020 and by mid-September you’ll be saying ‘yes’ to lots of exciting consultancy offers.

  4. Why Navigating The Second Half Of 2020 Might Be Easier As a Consultant

    Posted on

    Do you want to create your own future? To boldly navigate new goals? To confidently negotiate a higher income? 

    If you dream of achieving more, then becoming a consultant might be the way forward for you. Let me show you why.

    Over the last few weeks, I’ve had lots of conversations with confident, assertive and motivated people about returning to work post Covid-19 lockdown, and one topic has arisen time and time again: concerns that a full-time salaried job no longer offers what they need. 

    For hard-working and driven people, a full-time salaried career is no longer viewed as either a secure or desirable way to achieve personal or financial goals.  

    Becoming an HR Consultant turns this on its head. This is why: 

    Professionals employed by someone else are worried in the current climate, not only about health concerns but about future company redundancies, salary reductions, lack of growth opportunity, childcare needs, lack of personal time, and a lack of company value or appreciation. 

    Each and every one of these is a very valid concern and something that employers need to address. 

    But for you - there is another way. And now is the time to act.  

    Set your own goals, workload, salary and time by starting your own consulting business. If it’s security you crave, this may feel contradictory. But let me explain how it can help. 

    As an HR Consultant and business owner you will have the freedom to: 

    • Create your own desired income; you won’t need to worry about redundancies or salary deductions.
    • Ascertain your own earnings, and find ways to boost your income in times of need.
    • Self-motivate to grow your business and achieve goals.
    • Take control over your time. You’ll be free to take time off whenever needed, no questions asked.
    • Create your own unique set of business values - and live up to them.

    As the UK prepares to go back to work, now is the time to set up your consulting business. Covid-19 has created a high demand for HR services that you can fulfil. But there is only a small window of opportunity to take advantage of this.

    I’m running a 6 week HR Consultant Bootcamp to help you achieve it. This is the last Bootcamp before businesses emerge out of furlough. This Virtual Bootcamp will help you get ready for potential clients.
