They thought I was just taking a contracting role until I found a 'real job' but I have grown my consulting practice into a 7-figure business

Finally! you'll be able to build a sustainable consulting, coaching or professional services practice, with this hands-on programme.

Pilot programme now open. Strictly limited to 10 places

Anyone who has tried to build a sustainable consulting business has run into one problem after another...

It's no secret. Trying to build a sustainable consulting business can be extremely difficult.

You have probably ...

  • Networked like crazy with your past colleagues and contacts, which ended up in interesting chats, but not a lot of work and no next steps.
  • Spread the word through those around you that you are on the market and that you could help with any number of things which resulted in a lot of coffee but not much work.  
  • Realised that you need to be specific about the offering, but then worried that narrowing your offer would limit your market.

...and…when you won a client, you became 100% focused on delivering, which led you to…

  • Recognise that it's not wise to have all your eggs in one basket, and the more time spent on delivery, the less time spent on working your own business and winning new customers.
  • Forgot about your pipeline
  • It's really no wonder that most people who try to build a sustainable consulting business give up.

But the truth is...

Being able to confidently replace and exceed your current income is much closer than you think...

33% of the US workforce is currently freelancing and this will grow to 43% by 2020

How being made redundant made me build a successful consulting business, so I never need to have a 9-5 job again.

Kursten Shalfoon here, and yes, I've been down the same road.

When I started out, I faced all seven of these major problems:

  • I had no proposition
  • I had no point of difference
  • I had no way to attract customers
  • I hadn't made the mindset shift
  • I didn't like or even know how to sell
  • I was stuck, and I was scared…
  • I was terrified that I would fail

Despite all of these problems, I was able to start and grow my own very successful consulting business

These days, things have gotten much better...

I can manage my pipeline with confidence, and my income is now more secure than it ever was on a 9-5 job. I not only choose who I work with, what I work on, when and where I work, and best of all, I also command higher fees. And most importantly I have scaled my business and move beyond trading time for money.

But I've never forgotten the frustrations I had before beginning to see any improvements.

I was steps away from giving up and going back into the corporate grind when I decided to really commit to becoming a consultant rather than just using it as an 'in between job gig.' I realised that if I put all of my marketing and commercial skills 

to use in my own business, I would be successful.

Success began to happen, and after making many 'calculated' mistakes, I stumbled on the answer.

  • The JOY of winning your first paying customer and the freedom of working for yourself.
  • Replacing and EXCEEDING your current income.
  • Never having to worry about where your next customer is going to come from and having customers CHASING YOU.
  • A constant stream of leads and income and SETTING YOUR OWN RATE.
  • Having the FREEDOM to pick who you work with, the projects you want to work on, and when and where you want to work.


However, knowing I wasn't the only one who had suffered from this problem, I had to share my formula for success.

If you are starting out in consulting or have been consulting, contracting, or coaching for a number of years and want to scale and accelerate your business, you will benefit from Consulting Freedom.

Or if you're sick of struggling to decide if you should go into a consulting business, where to start, how to position yourself, how to convert coffee conversations into customers, then Consulting Freedom is for you.

I have created a system to strategically focus on the critical areas of my business for the fastest results, so there is no room for guesswork or fear; it is a step-by-step systematic approach to achieve momentum and results.

  • Only work in the area you want
  • Only work with the clients that you want 
  • Be confident in attracting and selling to great clients

Or you can accelerate your learning and use the exact same system as mine and get consulting freedom now.

I have been contracting for a number of years and wanted to move my business to the next level. Working with Kursten has helped me refine and hone my market offer. He helped clarify my position and gave me the confidence to put my rates up. I immediately achieved a 25% increase in revenue.


Tech Advisory

"When the option of consulting arose, it was never my top choice, there were too many unknowns. I had the ambition and believed I had the ability, but it was Kursten that provided the experience and guidance as to how I could live out my dream. He has a genuine interested in me, ensuing I knew the realities of the change and sharing with me the tools needed to be successful. This allowed me to take an honest assessment of myself and my goals, enabling me to build a business plan that removed many of the unknowns. I can’t thank him enough for time and support." 



"I have really enjoyed working with Kursten. Not only does he have extensive knowledge underpinning his business advice, he is also skillful at gently pushing you to think differently, and spot gaps in your strategy and approach. Our sessions have had enabled me to get clear on my purpose, the problems I am solving for my clients, and stay focused on what matters."

- Debbie

Kursten was invaluable in stepping me through the minefield of a small business set-up. With his long corporate and consulting history, he really helped me to realise and then sharpen my business idea, building a viable customer proposition and showing me ways to add value for my clients at every step. His hands-on advice helped me win my first client contract (worth $30,000), and was instrumental in converting this promising start into a real live business.    


Word Studio

"I had spent the majority of my career in a major NZ corporate and I have always thought about starting my own business and with the changing digital environment. What I didn't know was where to start. The first person I spoke to was Kursten. Kursten helped me understand what the market needs and how my ideas could be used to fill a gap in the market. Going through Kursten's process was a real eye opener. The questions that Kursten asked really challenged me and my thinking about a particular idea. At the end of the programme I have an idea that I am taking forward is more formulated, targeted and I confident it will succeed. I am now in the final stages of stepping out of the corporate arena into the owner of a start up and consulting business. I could not have made this step without Kursten's assistance."
