From Transactional Consultant to Industry Leader with Jason FearnowSep 30, 2021
How can you evolve from being a transactional consultant to a recognized industry leader?
What tactics need to change? What mindset needs to shift?
I talked about this with Jason Fearnow in this interview.
Jason is an accomplished leader with specialized expertise in large contract negotiations for mega-mining projects.
So when he got laid off unexpectedly, he was immediately presented with consulting opportunities.
One thing led to another, and he found himself with a business, which was great for a while. Until Jason realized he was ready to make a bigger impact on his industry, clients, and the world. In other words, it was time for him to evolve from transactional consultant to recognized leader.
This is when I started working with Jason on his brand messaging and positioning. From the minute I met Jason, I knew we had to approach his brand messaging and positioning work with an eye towards thought leadership.
He had a million ideas for how he wanted to shake up his industry and help leaders in a more substantial way than just offering his technical know-how.
Here's what Jason had to say about the secret behind his transformation from transactional consultant to an industry expert:
"I love about that is that the more I do this, and the more I like, communicate my values and my beliefs, the more people gravitate toward me that have the same ideals so that when you have a conversation with them, the quality of the conversation is so much higher. So, as a result of that - it energizes the heck out of me because I get to be free. I get to express what I'm passionate about. I get to say what I think. And guess what, other people agree but that energy, that that enthusiasm, that excitement, it's infectious."
If you want to express your authentic self, true values, and heart-felt beliefs in your business and use them to catapult you to the next level, watch Jason share his inspiring story.
Jason and I have an open and candid discussion about:
- Why getting laid off can be the best thing that can happen to your career
- How to intentional about your business and get the clients you want (vs. settling for the ones that come to you)
- What it takes to deep reflection work to shift your mindset and confidence
- Strategies for unearthing your superpowers and big, transformational ideas
- The freedom that comes from repelling the WRONG clients
- Why success should be measured first by the quality of your relationships
