The $250K Business Breakthrough with Laura Khalil

This is a conversation I have been looking forward to having for quite a while because my guest, Laura Khalil specializes in helping female consultants make $250k.  First off,   I was intensely curious, why $250k, when the majority of business coaches and consultants are talking about helping their clients hit 6-figures or 7-figures?  I already knew that the skills and strategies that get you to 100k are not going to get you to 250k, but when you are not promoting group programs, courses, or having the leverage and scale convo, what else is there?  Well, this is where we are going in today’s super exciting conversation.  I am so rarely speechless, but it literally happened in this interview because of all I learned from Laura and can’t wait to share with you. 

Laura pulls back the curtain on:

  • Why 88% of consultants top off at $113k, and what she does differently 
  • The majority of consultants experience feast or famine cycles in business
  • Why most marketing is bullshit and what she teaches her clients instead
  • How she manages to work a lot fewer hours than her less well-paid peers
  • A different way to look at scaling your consulting business 
  • The flat tire analogy that puts it all in perspective 


Mic Drop Moment:  

“The secret to earning $250k as a consultant is not a secret.  You need to become highly referable.” Laura Khalil

Don’t forget to join us next week for Episode #111 when I return with a solo episode called “The Trauma-Informed Business Owner.” You may have noticed that the subject of trauma has suddenly started cropping up in coaching and consulting circles and countless people are referring to themselves and their businesses as ‘trauma-informed or ‘trauma-conscious”.  

It is no surprise that a great number of people have experienced trauma in some form, but what do we really need to know about how to work with them and also how to choose wisely who we work with and for.   Join me next week, on Tuesday,  June 21st.
