"I can say unequivocally that IndeCollective is the best investment I’ve made in myself in more than a decade. Thanks to the curriculum and support I received from my peers and mentors, I’ve set more ambitious goals and accessed the right resources and guidance to double my business in the next twelve months. If you have a bigger ambition for your personal and professional life, IndeCollective is a ‘must do now’ investment in yourself and your business.”

Cat Coffrin, Brand Leader

"Thanks to IndeCollective's pricing and productization bootcamp, I was armed with the framework and support to pitch and close new business on the right terms, tripling my consulting revenue quarter-over-quarter.”

Joanna Lee, Marketing Leader

"Six years into my independent consulting journey, I’ve found my tribe through IndeCollective — a community of driven professionals, who share a commitment to achieving greater financial freedom and flexibility through independent work. Through this program, I’ve connected with new business partners and collaborators — people with whom I can tackle larger client engagements. Not only growing my revenue, but doing so in a way that keeps me engaged and growing professionally.”

Sven Merten, Strategy Leader

"I’ve been in corporate leadership roles for two decades, but this is the first time that I am building my own service-oriented tech company. Through IndeCollective, I was paired with a ‘personal board of advisors’ and connected to experts who mentor growing businesses. Now, with this well-rounded support, I have a clear plan to enable my company, āxil, to break the seven-figure revenue mark.”

Nerissa Naidu, Finance & Tech Leader

"Being an independent has given me the financial freedom and flexibility to live a life that aligns with my values. Being a part of IndeCollective has expanded my view of what's possible financially as an independent, and connected me with the right tools and community to continue evolving my business.”

Willa Zhou, Operations Leader

"Since leaving my full-time corporate job a year ago, I’ve launched an independent advisory firm and a tech startup. IndeCollective's curriculum helped me address some of the challenges I originally faced, identify new opportunities I hadn't seen before, and develop the know-how to build two cash generative businesses.”

Arif Shah, Product Leader

"One of the most compelling and truly special elements of the IndeCollective experience is the (A)Team — a curated group of six peers, with whom you’re matched based on your adjacent, yet non-competitive professional goals. I genuinely look forward to our Monday evening (A)Team meetings. They’re an opportunity to get real-time feedback on a burning challenge I'm facing; to support my peers and flex my problem-solving skills to help others; and share a laugh, a bit of good or bad news, and simply to connect with a group of impressive people who now know my goals and are invested in my success. In a few short weeks, my (A)Team has morphed into my personal board of advisors. This is a group I will stay in touch with for years to come and a container that I believe so many of us crave.”

Sarah Lewen, Customer Experience Leader

"IndeCollective has given me the framework to grow my brand in a strategic and scalable way. I have built a better, stronger business — and, I haven't increased my hours worked to do it.”

Benjamin Ayer, Fashion Business & Sustainability Leader

"I’m two years into building my consulting practice, Palais Impact Advisors. We’ve made great progress, no question, but now thanks to IndeCollective, I have confidence in the questions I need to ask and resources I need to access — this quarter, next quarter, and a year from now — in order to continue growing my consultancy. Just as important, I now have a community and a personal board of advisors to support me as I navigate my next stages of growth.”

Kara Gustafson, Impact Investing Leader

"Although I’m a long-time independent, I’m a first time agency builder. Being surrounded by seasoned peers and having access to expert practitioners who have built successful, seven-figure businesses helped me short-cut to the right steps to setup my agency and land my first five clients. It would have taken me years to figure this out without the support I received through IndeCollective.”

Lance Holmes, Design Leader

"Having led performance marketing at some of the fastest growing startups, IndeCollective helped me translate my craft into consulting opportunities that have broadened my network and created a secondary source of income.”

Monica Cepak, Growth Leader

"I’ve been an independent consultant for more than three years. Thanks to IndeCollective, I connected with frameworks and expert perspectives to more clearly articulate my product offering, refine my pricing model, and cultivate a more thoughtful sales process — changes that didn't take inordinate time, but that ought to have a meaningful impact on my go-to-market and revenue in 2021.”

Teddy Daiell, Healthcare Leader

"I consider myself a community builder — I love organizing conferences and groups of like-minded, high potential people for networking and business development. As an alum of IndeCollective, I’ll say it is one of the most impactful communities I’ve ever been a part of. If you’re looking for the right network + education to help you grow your independent business — go no further, IndeCollective is it.

Ashley Quinto Powell, Sales Leader

"I’ve alternated stints as an independent consultant with time as a C-level executive, and feel so much more empowered and prepared to grow my consultancy using what I learned from IndeCollective. The program helped me rethink how I package, price and promote my services, better define my audience and brand, and extended my network to include smart specialists in many areas. Each week I got actionable ideas that I immediately put into practice.”

Claudia Richman, Organizational Design & Change Management Leader

"IndeCollective’s expert network and platform are exceptional. The content, discussions, and workshops led by, and with, seasoned solo practitioners and agency leaders helped me to productize and proactively market my offering, expanding my consultancy.”

Julia Davis, Real Estate & Hospitality Leader

"I think of IndeCollective as the modern MBA – for the modern, independent worker. While I graduated from Wharton and that education and network has served me well, IndeCollective's program feels tailor made for anyone who is serious about translating their skillset into seven-figure, independent business. As someone who's worked both in executive roles and independently, the education, expert mentorship, and community I've developed through IndeCollective will be invaluable for charting my career journey.”
