‘Cut through the Chaos, Win Projects and Consult with Confidence’ (in your first year so you can forget employment forever)


“This course is a godsend! While I had full confidence in the experience and abilities gained from my government career, I had NO idea how to translate these into a profitable consultancy business. Jacq’s course provided everything I needed – loads of practical support and advice, tangible products I could put to immediate use, and most of all confidence in my decision to go it alone! It’s the best investment I made as I set up my solo consulting business and I highly recommend it to anyone making the same move”

Louise Mcdonough, LM Consulting – Public Sector Specialist

Does any of this apply to you?

  • You recently made the move to consulting and don’t know how to package your expertise and experience into a consulting package that will attract clients?
  • FOMO (fear of missing out) on opportunities has stopped you from identifying a niche and specific service offering,
  • Things went well for the first few months, but the work flow has dwindled and you don’t know how to get business flowing again.
  • You have a huge fear about marketing and no idea how to do it.
  • You really want to make your consulting business work, but doubt and anxiety are kicking in and you’re wondering if you made the right decision.
  • You’re worried about the embarrassment and sense of failure if you have to return to employment.
  • You really want to realise the professional and personal goals you set for yourself when you started out.

I get it. I was in that same boat myself 19 years ago.

The first year in business is the toughest, and a lot of people who have what it takes to succeed go back to employment with their tail between their legs. Not because they want to, but because they don’t know where to get the support they need to build their business.

Solo Consultant (First Year) Launchpad overcomes these challenges.

You’re only a few steps away from positioning yourself to generate demand for your services. 

Only $AU429.

From time to time, I’ll send you useful information to help grow your consultancy business. I’ll never send you spam,
I’ll never share your details with a third party and you can opt out at any time.

Finding it hard to get traction?

Not generating enough business?

I work with consultants just like you every day to turn things around.

“Expertly developed, well written, practical course that provides excellent guidance to someone new to consulting. The course would also be of great benefit to someone already in consulting who feels they need to refocus their consulting business. Do the course and your business will see the benefits. “

— Maureen Hanly, Independent Health Consultant

And don’t forget – included is a one-hour Zoom session with me to get personalised advice and feedback. (normally $425).

Everything you need to know about Solo Consultant (First Year) Launchpad


It’s an email course which consists of four worksheets (emailed weekly), each targeting a specific area that new consultants struggle with. Once you’ve completed the worksheets you and I have a 1 hour “Strategy Session” to review your draft outputs. During the video call you can get personalised feedback and advice from me. By doing the course you can…

  • Define your ‘why’, re-committing to your purpose for moving to consulting.
  • Decide on your service offering, including niche, ideal market, client problems and how you’ll solve them
  • Develop a work-winning Capability Statement
  • Draft your visual brand, update your LinkedIn profile and develop your 6-month marketing strategy… demystifying marketing, providing straightforward strategies and turning it into an action plan

… so you can get on with marketing yourself to win consulting projects.





After a decade working in the public health sector, I started my solo consulting business in 2000 and have never looked back.

My expert guides, tips and how-tos have been featured on business and consulting publications like Expert360, Inside Small Business, LinkedIn Pulse and Flying Solo.

I’m known for helping consultants in their first six to eighteen months develop their Service Offering, Capability Statement and Marketing Strategy so they can win consulting projects.


“I would encourage anyone starting a new consultancy to undertake this program as it will benefit your consultancy tremendously. The program is also worthwhile for established consultancies to review and update to attract more or new clients. My consultancy had been active for a few years but starting to slow down, I wanted to get some tips on how to improve contacts and exposure to boost the work coming in.

The simple, short worksheets helped to define what I would offer and who to target. It broke up the start-up phase into manageable chunks and sequential tasks that made sense. The video conference was particularly valuable to get tailored advice and support specific to my circumstances.

— Sarah Barter [Sarah Barter Consulting]


Starting a solo consulting business can be an extremely isolating experience especially when things don’t take off as quickly as you are expecting and wanting. Having someone to offer advice who has been in your shoes and managed to build and sustain a successful solo business is extremely beneficial and I really valued that advice. My business is now doing really well and I have more work than I can handle
