Dear Business-Building Warrior,
What if you could take what you already know and the skills you already possess and start getting paid for them by other businesses? If that sounds good, I’m going to show you how!
For years I have taught that one of the three main ways you can make money online is by helping other businesses...this is what the ‘C’ (Consulting) stands for in CES!
I have partnered with three of my most trusted students: “Fireman Mike” LeMoine, Chris Leake, and Daniel Leake. Together they have created our latest course, Proven Business Consulting (or PBC), to teach you how to add the ‘C’ income stream to your business!
Here’s what’s great about this business model:
The fact is there are businesses out there right now that are willing to pay you a lot of money for skills and knowledge that you probably already possess.
It’s very reasonable to have a business pay you $300 or $500 or $800 a month (or more) for helping them. Even just having one or two businesses like that may really make a difference for you, depending on your situation.
Whether you’re an online business veteran or just starting out, consulting is a great way to add another steady income stream to your business.
I can’t wait to show you how to do this, so keep reading!
To your success,
Proven Business Consulting is both for people who already have some level of experience getting paid to help other businesses (any OfflineBiz folks hanging around?), as well as for total beginners!
In fact, business consulting might be a perfect fit for you if you can relate to any of the following:
If any of these things could possibly apply to you, then keep reading!
As you build your online business, one of the biggest dangers you face is ending up with too many eggs in one basket.
This is why I have always stressed the importance of multiple streams of online income.
Let me give an example: Let’s say most of your business involves selling physical products online.
Everything is rolling along great until one day it happens – you get the dreaded suspension notice from Amazon. Now, instead of the sales pouring in day after day, you have absolutely no money coming in from Amazon!
Imagine having a mortgage or rent payment due, or a car payment due, or credit card bills to pay, and suddenly the main business activity that’s generating income for you is dead in the water, at least for a time.
Proven Business Consulting is a great way to diversify your online income streams and protect you from the threat of having too many eggs in one basket!
Just by being in online business, you probably already know more than many business owners will ever know about online marketing. Seriously!
Want proof? Chris Leake, one of the course instructors, has been paid $250 an hour to explain to a client very basic things like how Fulfillment by Amazon works and how to make changes to an Amazon product detail page. And clients find this kind of help well worth the money!
Most business owners are experts in their trade or their product...the owner of a painting business is great at painting, and the owner of a widget business is great at designing widgets...but they’re not necessarily great (or even good) at marketing or at selling their products online.
That’s where you come in. You have knowledge that can help businesses. And if you’re ever not sure what to do, you’re connected to an amazing community of online entrepreneurs!
Another reason this business model should excite you is that in order to make $2,000 selling physical products in your own online business, you often have to tie up one or two thousand or maybe even three or four or five thousand dollars in cash just to make $2,000.
But when you’re helping another business, you can have a $2,000 check show up in the mail that you didn’t have to tie up ANY cash (or hardly any cash) to earn!
It’s a great feeling when you have a $500 or $2,500 or $5,000 check shows up in the mail from a business you’re helping!
There are numerous things businesses need help with...some of which you may already know how to do. For example:
And even if you’re not good at any of those things, you can sell these services to businesses and then hire other people to help you do them. You know who to go to for help! (After all, you have the Silent Sales Machine community right here, right?)
Let’s say you understand what I’m saying and you think you might want to give it a shot. But maybe you have some doubts.
You might be thinking, “I don’t have any experience doing this, how could I ever get businesses to trust me and pay me to help them? What if I can’t really help them?”
Want to know who else struggled with all the same doubts? Our three Proven Business Consulting course instructors: Mike LeMoine, Chris Leake, and Daniel Leake!
“Fireman Mike” LeMoine
Mike LeMoine, better known as “Fireman Mike” was a full-time firefighter who started following My Silent Team and learning online business during his down time at the fire station. One of his first successes in consulting came when he set up a website that starting gathering leads for house painters in his hometown of Albuquerque.
Mike emailed several local house painters, showed them the results he was getting with the website, and told them he would only be able to work with one of them. One house painter quickly responded to Mike, invited him over, and wrote him a several thousand dollar check.
Today, Mike runs his local marketing consulting firm full-time. Mike and his team of 12 people serve over 60 clients every month, and this year Mike will gross over $1 million dollars in consulting income.
Chris Leake began offering marketing services to local businesses in 2011 when he returned to the United States after serving as a missionary for nearly 7 years. He saw some early successes, such as a client who paid him $12,000 for one job, and he also experienced plenty of growing pains as he made nearly every mistake in the book.
Chris’s breakthrough came when he finally learned how to stop giving his time away for free and how to use proper positioning to attract clients rather than to chase them.
Today, Chris primarily focuses his consulting services on national brands selling physical products that he meets at trade shows and through referrals.
Daniel Leake, a coach for the Jim Cockrum coaching program, became a follower of My Silent Team and started building online businesses while working full-time in corporate food service management.
Being somewhat shy by nature, Daniel can empathize with those who feel like hyperventilating when they think about approaching business owners they don’t know to strike up a conversation.
Daniel has worked with local businesses, nonprofit organizations, e-commerce businesses, and national brands. His success stories include bartering his marketing services in exchange for several thousand dollars worth of orthodontic work, as well as creating a viral video for a client that generated millions of views and thousands of subscribers in just a couple of weeks.
As he has learned and applied the principles taught in Proven Business Consulting, Daniel has gone from his early timid days with clients to confidently negotiating significant deals with clients, such as a recent one that pays him a $2,700 a month retainer plus hundreds or thousands a month in performance-based commissions.
So as you can see, even though Mike, Chris, and Daniel have been paid thousands of dollars for helping other businesses, it’s not because they’re some kind of amazing online business gurus.
They’re very ordinary guys...a fireman, a missionary, and a food service manager. They are members of the Silent Sales Machine community just like you.
What they teach in Proven Business Consulting isn’t just theory. Mike, Chris, and Daniel have boots on the ground, building their own consulting businesses and constantly learning and growing.
In Proven Business Consulting, Mike, Chris and Daniel are going to help you overcome the very same challenges they faced. Challenges like:
And there’s so much more you’re going to learn besides those things!

The value of the course content and the PBC PBC Mastery Circle alone is easily hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
You could take what you learn and go out this week and find a client willing to pay you a few hundred or even one or two thousand dollars (or more) per month.
Now let me be clear: We are NOT guaranteeing that will happen. We can’t guarantee any results. But these types of deals are absolutely possible, and Mike, Chris, and Daniel have gotten them many times with their own clients.
How will getting a client that pays you several hundred or more per month affect your life and business? What if you can get 3-4 clients like that?
The STAR Diagnostic™ for Brands Selling on Amazon: This is a diagnostic template you can adapt and use in your own business for scoring a brand on how well they’re doing on Amazon. You can sell the diagnostic checkup and an accompanying consultation to businesses for up to $500 (or more). The template includes an accompanying how-to walkthrough video where Chris shows you how to use it.
In-Depth Training On How To Optimize An Amazon Product Detail Page: Product detail page optimization is one of the most common and important services needed by brands selling their products on Amazon. In this video training Chris teaches you, section by section, a powerful framework to use for effectively optimizing Amazon product detail pages. Learn what we do for our own clients, then go out and offer this service for a few hundred dollars or even a thousand or more dollars per product!
How To Do A Google Analytics Walkthrough For A Business: Most businesses have Google Analytics installed on their websites, but very few of them have ever learned how to interpret the data. In this walkthrough video, Fireman Mike teaches you how to take a meaningful look at a business’s Google Analytics and then report the results. This is a great icebreaker strategy for gaining trust and getting businesses interested in paying you for other services.
How To Properly Set Up Google My Business For A Local Business: Google My Business is a very important piece of online real estate for local businesses, but many businesses don’t have it set up properly. In this video walkthrough, Fireman Mike shows you how to set it up. This is a great one-off service you can offer to a local business that can then lead to other services they’ll pay you a monthly fee for.
How To Use Website Heat Mapping To Help Clients: In this bonus video, Fireman Mike walks you through one of the most popular services he provides to clients. Many businesses spend a lot of money on a website, but then they have no idea how well the website is working. Heat mapping allows you to show a business how users are interacting with their website, what information and offers the users are most interested in, and how to better serve their customers.
How to Perform an SEO Audit and Website Optimization for a Client: Local businesses get hounded constantly by people trying to sell them SEO services. Many business owners are scared to commit, and for good reason. In this video, Mike shows you how to perform a one-time SEO audit and website optimization for a local business. You'll learn how to gain the trust of businesses by positioning your service differently than what everyone else is selling. It's one more way to become a trusted consultant by going against the grain!
How To Order Your First Business Card Using Vistaprint: In this bonus video module Daniel helps eliminate obstacles by walking you through the creation of one of the most important first elements of your client-attracting platform...your business card.

Yes, absolutely! Businesses everywhere need help selling their products and services.
It really comes down to how much time you want to put into it. Like anything, it will require hard work and consistent effort to grow your relationships with businesses, gain experience, and get better and better results. But ultimately, you can make it a full-time job like it is for Fireman Mike, or you can spend as little as 5-10 hours a week (or possibly less) working to gain and then serve a small handful of consulting clients.
Yes! The heart of this course is learning the consultative selling process for getting new clients...good clients...the right kinds of clients!

No problem! The way to success in business consulting isn’t using tricky sales tactics or making tons of cold calls. In Proven Business Consulting, you’ll learn how to attract clients and how to differentiate yourself by becoming a trusted consultant in a sea of sales people. You’ll always need to find ways to be connecting with business owners, and we’ll give you lots of great ideas how to do that. But building relationships has nothing to do with pushy, old-school sales tactics.

At its heart, this course is about the consultative selling process. So yes, you can get paid for your time as a consultant, but there are so many other ways you can get paid to help a business also. You can get paid to build websites, create Amazon product detail pages, run Facebook ad campaigns, provide order fulfillment services for e-commerce businesses, etc. Mastering the consultative selling process is simply the door that opens up a world of opportunity for getting paid to help businesses.

That’s okay! If you’re good at selling services to businesses, then you can choose to dedicate your energy to consulting and selling, and hire others to execute the work. If you’re better at “doing the work”, then you can partner up with someone who is good at selling services. Find the role(s) you’re good at, and then creatively partner with others in the areas where you’re not as strong.
This is the place where every consultant starts, including Mike, Chris, and Daniel. Just because you’ve never been paid (yet) to help another business doesn’t mean you don’t have value to offer a business. You do have value to offer, and value is worth a business exchanging money for. You might not get paid quite as much for your first client, or you may even choose to do something for free for a business or two in order to start to develop a track record, but there is no better time than the beginning to learn how to position yourself as a trusted consultant!
Learn how people of any skill level can get paid to consult by tapping here
You don’t need a lot of business experience! No matter who you are or what experience you have, there is someone out there who can use your help. If you’re capable of understanding a basic marketing framework we teach you in the course and relaying that to other businesses, then you’re able to help other businesses. If you have ever posted something on Facebook or sent a marketing email, there are businesses out there who could use your help. If you understand Fulfillment by Amazon, there are businesses out there who don’t, and who could use your help. And the more you do, the more you’ll learn, and the more value you’ll have to offer.
If you’ve failed before, it’s likely not because of some shortcoming on your part that can’t be overcome. You simply didn’t know how to properly position yourself and how to effectively engage businesses and get them to pay you for your help and expertise. That’s what this course will help you with! This is the course that Mike, Chris, and Daniel with they had had when they began consulting! So don’t give up...get some good training from our team instead and give it another shot!

The primary purpose of Proven Business Consulting is to teach you the MOST IMPORTANT aspects of building a business helping other businesses...the consultative selling process. We purposely did NOT focus the course on teaching the nuts and bolts of how to do specific things like websites and Facebook ads because it would take hundreds of hours to teach you everything you could know...and as soon as you finished it would have all changed and you’d have to learn again! But in the bonus modules you WILL LEARN how to deliver a few great introductory services such as how to set up a Google My Business page for a local business or how to optimize Amazon product detail pages. Also, we’ll be covering current tactics that work in the PBC Mastery Circle webinars.
