We can answer all these and any other questions that you may have of your own.

We charge only $1500CAD (tax included) for 5 hours (in one hour blocks - one hour at a time) of Skype or telephone mentoring. 

We accept Bitcoin payments.

Why is it only $1500?

Yes, you may say after all those expenses you had just to get ICCRC licence do you really have to pay another two thousand to start your business?

Think about it as an investment: if you do things right from the day one chances are you will save much, much more.

Fist year in business is very tough, many new consultants give up on their dream of self-employment during those first 12-24 months.

By having right information your chances of succeeding through that difficult period are much better than if you learn through trial and error.

Chances are you have spent around $10000 for training program and other expenses including expenses for ICCRC membership. If you fail you will lose not only your dream but also those ten thousand dollars.

Remember: if you get only one or two extra client because of the advice you get from us those 1500 dollars will be paid back!

When, for example, we tell you how you can put together a web site on your own, which is reliable and presentable, you won't have to pay those two thousand dollars to a (semi)professional to make a web site for your business. 

If we give you right advice regarding office rental you may save those two thousand dollars within a couple of months.

Self-employment comes with many expenses and income is not guaranteed, of course, especially in the beginning. What is important in the beginning is to reduce all unnecessary costs and maximize chances of earning income from business. We think we can help you with both.

We will be giving you practical advice and information (unlike many instructors in the immigration training program you took); that means you will get exact information, web site addresses, step-by-step instructions how to do something.

Immigration consultant behind this web site went through this initial stage of establishing immigration business himself and have (successfully) been in immigration business for over 9 years now.
