Let's get started!

Everything Changes When You Start Your Own Business

Consulting, in general, can be very lucrative and the HR consulting business model is no exception.  

However . . .  

When you’re an employee you receive a payslip every month like clockwork.  

As an employee, there are no expenses to pay.

That all changes the day you become a new, independent HR consultant.  

Suddenly, you have a wide range of set up costs and recurring expenses.

From the day you start your new Human Resources consultancy, you begin your prospecting for potential clients, pitching your services, and trying to win work.

You need a plan.

What Do You Want From Your New Business?

Before you embark on your entrepreneurial journey, it’s important to pause and reflect on what you want and how you want to achieve it.

Are you looking to build an asset that you can one day sell or are you aiming for more of a freelance lifestyle to create a new career path from your corporate life?

Will you be working towards a highly systemised, highly leveraged business that will expand rapidly and lead to a franchised business model?

Instead, are you just looking to pay the bills and keep the lights on while you work on an exciting new HR Tech product or information product on the side?

Will you be a generalist consultant or do you plan to narrow your focus on a particular skill set or industry?

You need a plan.

Here's Your Launch Plan . . .

Here's how it's going to work:

  • STEP 1. YOUR OFFER: WHAT YOU'LL OFFER AND HOW YOU'LL PROVIDE IT - Find Your ‘Why’ - Determine your preferred style of business. Choosing the right positioning and target market is central to everything you’ll do. It is probably the single biggest difference between success or failure. Create a lean startup HR consultancy business plan. You have so many skills and so much experience. What HR-related services should you offer to clients and how? We'll cover all this and more.
  • STEP 2. YOUR MONEY: HOW YOU'LL CHARGE, COLLECT, & MANAGE YOUR MONEY -  How much should you charge? How will you manage cash flow? (There will be an initial dip) You won't get that steady paycheck from your employer any more. You'll need to have a clear plan on how to boost the profitability of your business and improve your cash flow so things become easier and more enjoyable.
  • STEP 3. YOUR PATH TO NEW CLIENTS -  As an employee, you didn't need to sell anything. Now, suddenly, you have to go out there and convince people to buy your HR products and services. There are so many marketing strategies & tactics out there. LinkedIn is so crowded, Twitter seems so angry. How are you going to find the right people and bring them towards your HR consultancy? We'll also talk about your online presence - your website, your branding, and your presence on social media and elsewhere. 
  • STEP 4. YOUR BUSINESS MINDSET -  Launching your own HR consultancy is exciting but it can feel a little daunting at times. You'll need to establish a business growth mindset which will help you start your business and then convince employers to become your client.
  • STEP 5. YOUR QUESTIONS -  Frequently asked questions from people like you as they prepare to start their own independent HR consultancy.
  • BONUS: CONSULTANT CASE STUDIES -  HR consultants share their real-life start-up experiences and advice.

Everything You Need To Know To Launch Your Own HR Consultancy

The following are real questions sent in by people preparing to start their own consultancy in the Human Resources industry.

We'll be covering these questions in the course.

Choosing the right positioning and target market is central to everything you’ll do. It is probably the single biggest difference between success or failure. We'll cover this in detail.

You have so many skills and so much experience. What HR-related services should you offer to clients? Should you have a niche or generalist approach? We'll cover this in detail.

There are so many marketing strategies & tactics out there. LinkedIn is so crowded, Twitter is so angry. How are you going to find the right people and bring them towards your HR consultancy? There are plenty of marketing techniques you can use. We're going to look at all your marketing options and make sure you choose the right one/s for you.

As an HR employee inside a larger company, you didn't need to sell anything. Now, suddenly, you have to go out there and convince people to buy your HR products and services. What do you plan to say to them? We'll cover this in detail.

You won't get that steady paycheck from your employer any more. You'll need to have a clear plan on how to boost the profitability of your business and improve your cash flow so things become easier and more enjoyable.

We'll work through this issue together. I'll show you how to present unique value when compared to others. Together, we'll make sure your new business is nicely differentiated from the rest of the market.

This is a tough situation but not insurmountable. As a side note, some consultants have decades of experience as an employee but they only use a small subset of their skills and experiences when consulting. In other words, you're not as far behind as you think.

This is a crucial area and one we'll cover in depth. You'll have worksheets to help clarify your thinking.

Great question and a popular one! Yes, we'll cover this in detail as there are a number of options.

The global lockdown made LinkedIn and Facebook very crowded places for people wanting to market their business. We'll talk about how to post on social media in the right way.

Yes, you can. Plenty of HR consultancies do this already and the pandemic has accelerated this change. We'll look at how to do it properly.

This is a crucial issue as your cash flow will definitely fall when starting a brand new business. We'll examine your options before and as you launch.

We'll cover this in a general way as course participants are in many different countries and legal jurisdictions - hey, I'm not your accountant :)  However, we will look at a very simple but highly effective method of managing your money which is applicable anywhere (the method is based on a best-selling book and you'll really like it).

Insurance (such as professional indemnity insurance) will be covered in a general way as course participants are in many different countries and legal jurisdictions - hey, I'm not your lawyer  :)  However, we will cover core concepts and there will be resources to guide you through this step, including links to the main insurance providers.

Starting and running your own HR consultancy is exciting but it can feel a little daunting at times. You'll need to establish a business growth mindset which is easier said than done. Don't though, I'm on your side!
