10 Secrets to Build Your Consulting Practice

Join us on Tuesday, May 4, 2021

2 pm ET /  1 pm CT /  Noon MT / 11 am PT

The biggest problem many independent consultants, professionals and coaches face is the revenue roller coaster. Some months are up, some are down, and it is never a fun ride. At this special two-hour seminar by the authors of Build Your Consulting Practice and Defining You, they will help solve the biggest mystery for independents: how to attract high-paying clients on a regular basis. The clues point to three solutions.

  1. Understand generating clients I an investment and should be measured like any other method.
  2. Quit wasting time and money on ineffective means like brochures, advertising and networking.
  3. Invest in creating informative seminars, speaking engagements, and getting published.

Presented by Mark LeBlanc, author of the underground bestseller, Growing Your Business, and Henry DeVries, author of the Amazon marketing and sales #1 bestseller, How To Close a Deal Like Warren Buffett, and the business development columnist for

“Powerful, sage advice. I loved every minute of my time listening and learning from Henry.”

Book Kickoffs™

How To Write The Right Book That Will Attract High-Paying Clients


Outcome: The intended outcome for the Book Kickoffs is for you to leave with a draft book table of contents and detailed outline of book chapters to be written. Then you refine that manuscript until it is ready to be published. There will be two bio breaks (we are not monsters).

Details. Bring your laptop and your running shoes because we are writing a draft book outline in three hours.  Leave your perfection behind because we are shooting for a great first draft of an outline. Our motto is the book is the starting line, not the finish line. So, the key is planning to succeed as a result of the book. We will also talk about how to avoid the biggest book blunders, mistakes that cost rookie authors thousands and tens of thousands of dollars.  If you just want theory and platitudes, this is not the session for you. If you want results, you have found the right place.

Size. Limited to 12, to allow for interaction.

Bonus. After you attend the Book Kickoff, you can book a 90-minute pinpoint session one-on-one session with Henry to discuss how to accelerate your book.
