The business success programme is designed for you to acquire and consult over the long term with Business Owners or Managers in a highly profitable relationship for both parties.

The ConsultX programme gives you a process to work through with your Clients designed to re-engineer their business over an 8-10 week period with the outcome being a Business Plan for the next 5 years.

After the plan is completed your role is to become more of a Strategic Manager within the business (Business Success Partner) and to hold 2-3 meetings during each month.  An Implementation meeting where stuff gets done and tasks delegated, and a  Management meeting which is all about financial reports and KPI for the previous month.

Q: How long before I am earning enough income to replace my income today?

This depends on the determination and activity levels you are prepared to put into your new business, please remember you are changing careers so you will have to work hard for the first 3-5 months. Some people in our network take only a month to replace their income whilst others take a bit longer. What I can promise is that if you follow our system closely you will have a very good chance of replacing your income very quickly.

Q: Can I become a part-time Business Consultant?

Yes, it's your decision how much you want to work. Today in our network we have people who are happy to work 2-3 days a week and still earn a substantial income. Working full-time has the potential to generate an impressive level of income.

Q: Will ConsultX work for Accountants or in an Accounting firm?

Yes, today many Accountants and accounting firms are finding that work is drying up as their Clients are utilizing the new cloud-based accounting systems and doing their own reporting. Even the bread and butter of accounting which is compliance work is reducing at an alarming rate, so say the accounting press. We have known for a long time that Accountants and firms should be working into the future with their Clients, this will deliver considerable new revenue to this industry and help their Clients. We strongly encourage the accountancy profession to offer consulting services to their Clients as soon as possible. ConsultX is perfect for this as we already have the system that we have perfected over the years ready for Accountants to use.

Q: Do I need to become self-employed?

In NZ & Australia, you can either setup as a sole trader or a limited liability company.

We recommend seeking professional advice from your accountant and lawyer.

Q: Are Clients easy to find and sign up?

The market place is full of businesses where the Owner needs help right now. Most Business Owners do not know how to run a business and their Government gave them a licence to operate with no training or exams. So this is the reason that over 10 years around 80% of businesses go broke or close down. The ConsultX programme has been fine-tuned over 11 years to provide to you the best Client Acquisition system you will ever need to build a solid Client base. If you focus 100% on the Client Acquisition process you will sign Clients easily.

Q: How long does a Client relationship last?

This is totally up to you and how you manage the relationship. In our network today we have Consultants who have had Clients for 5 years and longer. The important thing on Client longevity is that you need to be delivering more than what they are paying you, we aim for a 10:1 return on investment for our Clients.

Q: What type of businesses should I be focusing on?

We consult to every kind of business you could imagine, however, our average Client annual revenue across the network is around $1-2m, our largest Client is $90m. The good thing is that most are growing and so are the fees.

Q: Tell me about the demand for our services.

This is never-ending and businesses are starting up and going broke faster than babies are being born.
