“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."

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

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
ALL REVEALED FOR YOU IN DETAIL (AND STEP-BY-STEP)
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.
