15+ Hours of Real Success Stories
In 90 days, this entrepreneurial job search approach delivered a short-term consulting engagement, then a target full-time executive role.
I thought my professionally written resume was good. Now I truly stand out. Most importantly, I can back it up during interviews.
They condition you to hunt for personal gain with the same gimmicky shortcuts and impersonal transactions as your competition, making it impossible to stand out, build lasting relationships, differentiate value, earn trust and maximize earning potential. You never learn how to gain a competitive advantage, so you'll never get ahead. They get paid to sell, not deliver results.
We coach you to solve problems and create value for business leaders by equipping you with a proven process you can execute, measure and continuously improve. Each step and iteration empowers you with exclusive new relationships, wisdom and skills; assets you will profit from for the rest of your career. If we fail to unlock your full potential, you cancel your membership.
To accelerate your development, we host live daily group QA sessions. Our community-based learning environment fosters accountability and enables you to get inspirational fuel, reinforce success habits, crowdsource valuable perspective from other members, expand your network with like-minded professionals and share qualified job, consulting or sales/biz dev leads.
Below are additional comparisons depending on which alternatives you may be considering...
Certified Career Coaches - Pay hundreds for personality profiles and aptitude tests to determine possible career paths that will make you happy? Then what? How will you secure that target job through traditional channels without experience? What if you realize it doesn’t make you happy? Or, you could create a value proposition that speaks to all employers, meet hundreds of influential business leaders, identify target people and challenges, then earn target offers by demonstrating superior leadership. Which strategy is faster and more reliable?
Professional Resume Writers - Pay hundreds for a certified amateur, who has never worked in your shoes, accomplished your goals or built/managed teams you aspire to join, to paste magic keywords in your resume and trick the ATS technology? How will you stand out from thousands of similarly qualified peers who also paid for the same shortcut? How will you differentiate your leadership during interviews? Or, you could learn how to market yourself and gain a true long-term competitive advantage? Which do you think great companies are looking to hire?
LinkedIn Optimization/Prospecting - Pay hundreds for a paint-by-number profile and wait for recruiters, hiring managers and business leaders to magically find you? Or, spam hundreds of business leaders with sales solicitations? How will you stand out from thousands of similarly qualified clones who also paid for the same shortcut? Can you really survive, let alone thrive, by working with price-conscious buyers? Or, you could learn how to differentiate your leadership and ROI? Which strategy do you think great companies will pay top dollar for?
Job Search Coaches/MBA Career Services - Get above average guidance from someone who has never worked in your shoes, accomplished your goals or built/managed teams you aspire to join, only to discover online applications, polished professional brand/resume, custom cover letters, recruiter outreach, referral networking and STAR interview responses fail to differentiate you from thousands of qualified peers. Or, you can work like an entrepreneur to create value for prospective employers? Which strategy will maximize your career options?
Outplacement Assistance - Receive mainstream resume writing support, templated cover letters, daily job match alerts, elementary-level interview tips and glorified cheerleading from someone who has never worked in your shoes, accomplished your goals or built/managed teams you aspire to join. Are their incentives are aligned with yours? Why does your support expire after 90 days regardless of employment status? Do A-list employers pay top dollar for reactionary cookie-cutter candidates? Do you want a real competitive advantage?
Executive Search Firms/Headhunters - Expose your salary requirements, defend your resume against flawed assumptions of unqualified talent evaluators and hope you get an interview with the hiring manager. Then what? How do you stand out from other qualified candidates? How do you negotiate higher compensation? Do great companies outsource something as important as talent acquisition? Do you want to limit your options and hope what they are selling is accurate? Or, would you rather become your own agent, generate more options and ensure fit?
Professional Networking Groups - Pay for organized speed dating, forced small talk, self-serving elevator pitches, transactional business card exchanges and empty promises with fake smiles. How often do you meet a target employer, client or business partner? How often do strangers gift amazing opportunities immediately after sharing mutual objectives? Or, you could schedule 1-on-1 meetings with influential decision makers who want to meet with you and demonstrate how you can grow their business. Which strategy is more efficient and productive?
Lead Generation Services - Pay and hope an artificial intelligence technology or low-skilled worker can generate high-quality appointments, then rely on transactional self-serving pitches to attract low budget sales to achieve quarterly quotas? Or, be one of the few visionaries to train real human beings to engage real human beings, express sincere interest in their business, identify short/long-term opportunities and demonstrate how your solutions can grow their bottom line. Which yields higher conversion rates and generates more revenue?
Sales Training Programs - Pay a premium for one-way presentations, scripted simulations and zero accountability for results. How valuable is that knowledge? How long does it last? Or, would sales people appreciate being taught how to think like business owners, master a simple process, accelerate progress with validated resources/live coaching and know that they can use these skills and relationships wherever they take their career next? Which aligns incentives? Which differentiates your brand? Which maximizes sales, revenue and long-term growth?
With very few exceptions, so long as human beings are the decision makers, English is the primary language, and you're pursuing opportunities that impact business performance, The Entrepreneurial Accelerator can help you work smarter to unlock your full potential.
