Ever dream of living a lifestyle of FREEDOM and FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE

It's time to take a step towards your work from home Consulting business TODAY!

Ever dream of the freedom of working from home, for yourself, and making more than you do at your 9 to 5 job?  Then consulting is for you!

If you have knowledge in an area that others need to know, a computer, and are ambitious, you can be up and running your own consulting business is less than a week!

That's right.  You literally need nothing other than:

  • A computer
  • Yourself
  • Ambition

I've been personally working as a finance and accounting/CFO consultant the last 10+ years, helping small companies grow. I took my vast background from the 10 years before that, working in corporate life, and turned it into a profitable consulting business that has given me the freedom to work from home, travel when and where I want, and make far more than I ever did working for someone else.  

By the end of this course you will have the knowledge and tools needed to get your very own consulting business up and running in next to no time, for next to no cost!!

Business owners are desperate for help out there, and YOU can provide them with the help they need!

You will learn EVERYTHING you need to hit the ground running with your very own consulting business in my course.  Below are some of the highlights:

  • The Pros and Cons of becoming a consultant
  • How to legally establish your consulting business
  • How to market your business
  • How to find clients (this is the big question out there, and we have the answer!)
  • How to keep your current clients coming back for more!


Chris Benjamin, MBA & CFO is a seasoned professional with over 20 years experience in accounting and finance.  Having spent the first 10 years of my career in corporate settings with both large and small companies, I learned a lot about the accounting process, managing accounting departments, financial reporting, external reporting to board of directors and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and working with external auditors.  

The following 10+ years I decided to go into CFO Consulting, working with growing companies and bringing CFO level experience to companies.  I help implement proper best business practices in accounting and finance, consult on implementation of accounting systems, implementing accounting procedures, while also still fulfilling the CFO roll for many of my clients which includes financial reporting, auditing, working with investors, financial analysis and much more.  

Thank you for signing up for this course. I look forward to being your instructor for this course and many more!
