CORPORATE TO CONSULTING:

One-on-one coaching for professionals to transition from their corporate career to their own consulting business

I work with high-achieving professionals and senior leaders, like you, who want to launch their own consulting business. Your background may be in law, HR, business consulting, accounting, finance, sales, marketing or another professional area.

You’re experienced and successful in your field. The only problem is, you feel trapped in your corporate career and want to make a bigger impact. You dream of stepping out of the corporate world and using your expertise to start your own consulting business.

But there’s a lot at risk. You have no idea if it’s financially viable — or how to get started.

Your current situation

You’re likely experiencing one of the common challenges outlined below. Ambitious and at the top of your game, you want to start your own consultancy but have no idea where to start. Or your fears and belief systems keep holding you back from following your dreams — you’re anxious, overwhelmed and can’t seem to move forward.

ARE YOU:

1. Unhappy or unfulfilled in your career and ready to make a change?

  • Struggling to find balance or not spending enough time with family?
  • Dreading Monday and feeling trapped in your corporate career?
  • Wanting to make a bigger impact and have the freedom and flexibility to choose your own work, clients and schedule?

2. Struggling to get unstuck and figure out your next steps?

  • Needing clarity on the exact steps to take to build the business you desire?
  • Overwhelmed and unsure where to start?!

3. Too busy to get started?

  • Having difficulty finding the time to transition into your own business?
  • Still thinking about launching a business after months (even years) — and worry you’ll never get started?

4. Put off by major financial or lifestyle commitments?

  • Nervous about throwing away the time, money and energy you’ve already put into your current career?
  • Concerned about leaving a secure income or have financial commitments and time out is hard?
  • Fear failure and need help conquering self-doubt or money worries holding you back?

5. Being challenged after making the leap from your corporate job?

  • So caught up in the ‘busyness’ of your day to day work, that you’ve got no idea what you’re working towards — or why?
  • Saying yes to work outside your area of expertise or feel stuck in a business model which doesn’t seem to fit?
  • Struggling to find clarity on your business goals, what you want or build a business aligned to your core strengths?

You’ve worked hard to get to this point in your career and there’s a lot at stake. Leaving a familiar career is uncomfortable and terrifying. It may even seem impossible right now. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Imagine:

  • Developing the confidence to take control of your career, move into action and start your new consulting business!
  • Becoming your own boss, creating better balance and doing meaningful work you love
  • Taking steps to build your new business, including testing and validating your business idea so you don’t make costly mistakes or waste time
  • Making the leap from your corporate job right now and making money fast
  • Waking up each day feeling inspired by your business and proud to have created something of your own

Corporate to Consulting is six months of one-on-one coaching for high-achieving professionals and senior leaders who want to transition from their corporate career into their own consulting business. 

Your six month program includes:

  • Initial 90-minute strategy session to design a plan of action and set specific, measurable goals for the duration of your program
  • 10 x 60-minute, fortnightly sessions — this is where the transformation happens as we make progress towards your goals
  • Final 90-minute completion session to review your goals and results, celebrate your accomplishments and establish next steps
  • Access to email/text support or short scheduled check-in calls to provide accountability and navigate any challenges between sessions

WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM UNIQUE?

This coaching and mentoring program is tailored to you and your needs. Together, we’ll work through a step-by-step process to minimise risk and take the fear out of starting your  business. All so you create the clarity, confidence and a structured plan to transition into your own consultancy.

I’m a Career Strategist — part coach, part consultant and part mentor

∗ As a certified coach, I’ll help you work through the fears, doubts and insecurities holding you back. We’ll shift your existing beliefs and behaviours to create new ways of thinking and permanent, transformative changes.

∗ I’ve advised professionals, leaders and business owners in professional services firms for over a decade. This gives me a unique understanding of their motivations, professional challenges and the issues impacting these businesses. Strategy is my superpower and I’ll help you create a structured plan to reduce risk and make your business a reality.

∗ As your mentor, I’m someone who has lived your journey in every possible way. I’ve navigated a corporate career, left to launch a successful consultancy and built two service-based businesses. Using my signature career framework, I’ll show you how to do the same.

All this means you’ll:

  • Understand who you are as a business owner and what’s important to you at work so you launch a business which fits your purpose, strengths, lifestyle, personal and professional goals
  • Learn lifelong tools to make the right business decisions, so you’re fulfilled at work and set yourself up in your ideal business model
  • Create a compelling vision for your ideal life and identify your key work priorities so you create a fulfilling, sustainable business from the start 
  • Overcome what’s holding you back from taking action – fears, negative thoughts, self-doubt, overwhelm and procrastination – so you can finally move into your dream business
  • Know exactly what business you want to start
  • Formulate a clear exit strategy from your current role, which includes how you’ll fund your business start-up to minimise uncertainty and risk
  • Clarify your niche, target market, offerings, pricing and establish a marketing strategy to build your business
  • Start making initial sales with target clients

A word from Stacey…

“I know what it’s like to be in the corporate world and dream of something bigger. My background includes over a decade in consulting with global corporations and eight years as an entrepreneur.

I’m an experienced business owner who has been where you are — and supported many others in the same situation. In 2013, I left the corporate world and launched a successful, multi six figure consultancy. Since then, I’ve learnt how to effectively market and grow two serviced-based businesses.

Through this experience, I’ve designed a structured process to help other professionals transition into their own consulting business. My approach is highly strategic and the systems used in my coaching programs build clarity, confidence and guarantee results. Working together, you can achieve the same.”

Coaching is for you, if you’re:

  • At a mid-senior stage of your career, with specialist knowledge and demonstrated success in your current field
  • Looking to use your existing expertise to start your own consultancy and want support to create a structured transition plan to minimise any fear and risk
  • Invested in the coaching process, committed to taking action and doing the work required to get results
  • Ambitious, successful and want to make transformative changes in your professional life
  • Motivated by goal setting, challenges and a practical, direct coaching style
  • Wanting strategic guidance from an experienced coach who has been where you are and supported hundreds of individuals to grow their careers and businesses
  • Seeking accountability and support to make permanent shifts in a shorter time frame

Coaching is not for you, if you’re:

  • A professional in the early stages of your career (this program is for experienced leaders with solid expertise in their field)
  • Unclear what business you want to start (check out Ignite Your Career instead)
  • Wanting someone to tell you exactly what to do — I’ll be your mentor, accountability partner and will guide you to find the right answers but ultimately, the decisions are up to you
  • Comfortable in your current position and aren’t ready to do the work required to make a change professionally

Coaching requires serious commitment and an investment in time, money and energy. You’ll need to take regular action to accomplish the goals you desire. At times, it will push you outside your comfort zone, but the results will be life-changing.

NEXT STEPS

One-on-one coaching will get you out of your job fast and making money in your own consulting business. I only work with twenty leaders a year due to the high level of support provided in this private coaching program.

CLIENT SUCCESS STORIES

These are the results you will achieve through one-on-one coaching with me.

CORPORATE TO CONSULTING is a bespoke coaching experience for aspiring business owners and consultants. It will give you the exact action steps, confidence and strategy to make the leap from your corporate job into your own business!  

“Prior to coaching, I had no business goals in place and was often distracted from what I truly wanted to achieve. Stacey identified my business needs from the beginning and guided me to implement systems to support my business growth.

Working with Stacey is like having someone convert the craziness in your head into a very clear, simple and concise plan. Business has tripled in 2 months but despite the sudden and unexpected growth, I’m not overwhelmed for a change. Coaching has made all these things possible!”

Jacinta, Legal Consultant

“Coaching with Stacey was an amazing experience. Since I was starting a new consulting business, I benefited from Stacey’s background and knowledge as an entrepreneur.

I became more confident in my skills, decisions and ability to build my business and accomplished a great deal during our time coaching together.”

Tracy, HR Consultant

“Before coaching, I lacked direction and had become overwhelmed by all the things I had to do. Working with Stacey helped me hone in on what I really want, rather than just following the easy path.

I’m more motivated, know what to work on to be successful — and have also been able to say no to work I don’t want to do!”

Linda, Legal Consultant
