Dear Early to Rise Reader,

MMF has mentioned in the past valuable skills you can master to earn an excellent second income. Copywriting and resume writing come to mind, for example. Today, I’m writing to tell you about something completely different. It’s a way for you to make very good money (something that could ultimately become your primary income … of $250,000 a year or more) without learning any new skills. And the really great thing about this opportunity is that you can take advantage of it no matter what you do right now. It’s flexible, too.

In fact, almost everyone who runs this type of business does it right out of their own home. I hope you’ll give me a few minutes to explain … A man named Hubert Bermont worked for ten years as a top executive in a major corporation. But he wanted more freedom and the ability to earn more money, so he became an independent consultant. In order to show other people how to do the same thing, he wrote a book in 1978, which is still a best seller, called “How to Become a Successful Consultant in Your Own Field.”

It was so popular that Bermont was contracted to write several follow-up books. Bermont realized a few years later that people needed more than just a book if they were going to make it on their own as consultants. He formed The Consultants Institute in 1981 to educate and certify successful students. Shortly after, he also formed The American Consultants League (ACL) to help graduates of The Consultants Institute remain current and on the cutting edge of the consulting profession.

The ACL continues today to be the oldest and best provider of information to consulting professionals. Bermont’s Institute was so successful that it was certified by the Ohio State Board of Higher Education. Today, it remains the only multidisciplinary institute ever certified by a higher board of education, with the ability to award Certified Professional Consultant accreditation. What I like about the Consultants Institute is that they can help you can turn your skills into a successful, high-paying career, no matter what you’re doing now. Think of what your life would be like if you were as successful as Peggy Argus for example.

After losing her job as a librarian and then as a technical writer, she turned her love of words and her ability to get along with people into a career as a “personal consultant.” She advises people on how to bring order and balance into their lives. Working from home, part time, she earned $60,000 in her first year. Or perhaps you could turn your hobby into a high-paying career. That’s what Stanley Feigenblatt did. He loves fishing, and now has a successful fly-fishing consultancy, teaching beginners everything from how to cast to what equipment to buy and where to find the best fishing holes.

Joann Gregoli did something similar. She turned her love of hosting parties into a career as a “wedding consultant.” She planned about 60 weddings last year. She charges more than $1,000 apiece. Of course, it’s obvious how you can become a professional consultant if you’ve got computer, marketing, sales, management, or other business skills. The point is, no matter what you do, with the help of the Consultants Institute, you can very likely turn your talents into a lucrative professional consultancy. To help you succeed, Hubert Bermont has put into place an entire system with his organizations, which includes …

** The Consultants Institute’s course, “How to Guarantee Your Consulting Success and a $250,000 Annual Income.” Upon successful completion of this program, you’ll be accredited as a Certified Professional Consultant. As you probably know, credibility as a consultant means everything.

** Membership in the American Consultants League (ACL). This comes with a slew of benefits, including the right to use ACL’s logo on your business cards and stationary, as well as free evaluations of your proposals and promotional material and access to the league’s client referral service. You also get a free one-year subscription to the ACL’s bi-monthly newsletter, “Consulting Intelligence”. Can you become a consultant on your own?

Sure. But I think you’ll be more successful more quickly if you take advantage of the Consultants Institute’s expertise and valuable connections. Even if you do nothing more than use the program to make a few thousand extra dollars a year, it will be well worth it. But chances are, once you get started, you’ll want to do much more.

For more details, see the special report Hubert Bermont put together at Sincerely, Mike Palmer Early to Rise P.S. You can have a look at The Consultants Institute’s course, membership materials, and the first issue of “Consulting Intelligence” to see if it makes sense for you. If you’re not happy, all you have to do is return the materials within the first 30 days for a full refund.
