"The Independent Marketer has been an absolute gold mine of a resource for us as we grow our marketing agency, and something we go back to on a daily basis..."

Davis Potter
Founder of Humanize What You Buy
“The Independent Marketer has been a game changer for me. I was having analysis paralysis and this course helped me overcome that by answering questions I had been asking myself and was holding back my potential. For anyone that is looking for that extra push to start their own marketing agency or even to do more freelancing, Chris gives you that confidence and guidance.”

“Making the leap is only half of the battle. If you’ve gotten that far, congratulations! The other half is figuring out how to run and grow an agency. You could spend months trying, failing, and learning—or you could jump straight to winning clients with a proven framework. I chose the Independent Marketer for the latter, and I haven’t looked back.”

“Just finished Chapter 1! I am amazed by the scalability of starting an agency or even consulting as a secondary income stream. Seems like those who can deliver consistent results to clients can do so very efficiently - freeing up time for additional clients, allowing them to have multiple sources of income, or just allowing them to have more free time in general (without taking a pay cut)! Looking forward to Chapter 2 and seeing what else is possible."

Earn an extra $10,000 per month in as little as 2 hours per day

Year One (4).png
I show you this not to brag, but rather to show what is possible when you have the systems and processes that I have built out. My goal for 2022 was to earn $100,000 as a full-time marketing consultant - that took me 6 months.

What's Inside?


Starting from the Ground Floor

Setting up Business

I've put this course together with one simple question - "what would I need to know if I was starting over from scratch?" This course will cover everything from deciding on a business entity to pricing models to my favorite tax breaks. This course will pay for itself 100X by saving you the headaches any new business owner will face. I've always been a firm believer in buying the ability to avoid costly mistakes and believe me - I've made a few you'll want to avoid!


Leveraging your personal brand & scaling

Client Acquisition

Many of you interested in this course will most likely try to run before you can walk which will inevitably end up with you falling flat on your face. This course will cover extensive information on building your personal brand, becoming a domain authority, and how to attract high-paying clients to you. From being featured on 30+ podcasts in the past 12 months to attracting clients from LinkedIn, TikTok, and Instagram - this course will show you exactly how to scale your agency.


Transitioning from a solopreneur consultant to a business owner


For marketers who are looking to not only build a second stream of income but also transition into a full-time marketing consultant, you will eventually hit the point where you will want to start expanding your team. This could be based on revenue, desired weekly workload, or the number of clients. I will share my experience building a world-class team, how to find and attract marketers to your team and the biggest mistakes most agency owners make when trying to expand.


How I Built a Multi Six Figure Agency in Less Than 6 Months Only Working 25 Hours Per Week

Chris Roche here - the CEO of Catalyst Consulting, a full-service digital marketing agency.

12 months ago, after several years of working in a toxic work environment, I left to start my own marketing consulting firm.

As the main provider for my family, I had no choice but to find clients...FAST. After 14 days I had replaced my lost income...and I didn't stop there.

This year, I will hit $250,000 in revenue without spending a dime on our own ads.

Every day I have marketers reach out to me asking how they can supplement their income through freelancing and how to gain the financial freedom to jump into consulting full-time.

If you want to learn the exact system I used to go from being miserable in my 9-5 to making over $250,000/year whilst working less than 25 hours per week, you're in the right place and I want to help you.

  • Who is this course for?
    This course has been specifically designed for marketers who are looking to broaden their skills, expand their income, and ultimately achieve complete financial and time freedom.
  • Why the heck should I listen to you? Who are you?
    12 months ago I was a lot like you. I knew I had the skills to earn significant income through digital marketing but lacked the confidence and know how to break out on my own. Now, I have worked with some of most exciting early stage startups in the country, I have managed over $1,000,000 in ad spend resulting in over $10,000,000 in revenue and have complete financial freedom. You don't have to listen to me and this course is absolutely not the only way to build a successful marketing consulting firm but for me, this approach has continued to allow me to scale with minimal effort and outbound sales.
  • Are you any good at Marketing?
    Yes. In a nutshell. But I am better at teaching. When I ran sales teams, I could always tech sales reps to emulate my approach very quickly and before I knew it, they would be closing more deals than I could. My mission is to teach marketers how to stand on their two feet, take control of their own financial freedom, and understand that working for a large company isn't the only way to make a living.
  • What will I learn in this course?
    Everything you need to be successful with launching your own consulting firm. This course is meant to be treated as a textbook that you can come back to when you are able to apply those lessons. Whether your goal is to set up a side gig making $5,000 per month or launch a full service agency doing 7 figures a year, this course will teach you how. Once you have the methods and practices I have created in place, you can decide how large you want to grow.
  • Ok. Got it. This must be expensive right?
    No. It's $500. Lifetime access. Even if your only goal is to land one client as a side hustle, this course will pay for itself 50X in the first year.
  • Most Marketing courses are like $1,200 or $1,500, or $5,000! What's the deal?
    This isn't my primary source of income. My goal is to grow my agency from $250,000 to $1,000,000 in 2023. I want this course to be accessible but also valued enough to where you will invest the time to complete it.
  • What's missing in this course that those other courses charge so much for?
    You won't be watching any Oscar-winning cinematography and it isn't shot on some big budget. I'm not sitting on a private plane or in some rented beach house. It's me in my home office being as real as possible with you.
  • Ok, but still...Is it worth $500?
    I've spent the past 12 months documenting how I've scaled Catalyst to this point it's at today. I've spent over 100 hours formulating the topics, recording content, and gaining feedback on this course. I've designed this course to be actionable. It's not some book you read once & shelve. It's a video-based course with a system that you can use every day, and revisit frequently. There isn't a larger return on investment for your future on the market today.
  • How long will it take to bring on my first client?
    It took me 14 days, but everyone is different. If you follow the lessons and modules and commit to taking action, I would anticipate your first client within 30-60 days and being able to replace your income within 3-4 months if that's your goal.
  • Does the course come with email or call support?
    This course will come with a designated community that will allow you to network with other marketers and I will also be on hand to answer any questions.
  • Do I get lifetime access?
  • Ok. What do I do next if I want to enroll?
