Three Strategies for Building a Consultancy That Matters


Suzi Hunn
Teach Your Thing, Learning Strategist

Suzi Hunn founded Teach Your Thing in 2017. Her mission is helping small businesses change lives through teaching what they know. Online courses, workshops, and curricular materials are her jam.

She loved her 15 years as a curriculum writer and teacher trainer at the Minnesota Historical Society. She has developed engaging learning experiences for founders, authors, social-studies students, K-12 teachers, corporate franchisees.

She believes in the quote, “You have medicine that you must own.” Too many professionals are holding theirs back out of obligation, fear, and habit. Today’s economy may be uncertain, but purpose-driven business ownership provides great opportunity. Suzi lights up with helping others cultivate fulfillment, build community, and generate sustainable impact.


In today’s disrupted economy, self-employment is a powerful tool for building something that matters, while reclaiming flexibility and creative freedom. If you’ve been dreaming of turning your knowledge into a consultancy that empowers individuals and community, this session is for you.

In this interactive session, you’ll be asked to consider who you can serve, uniquely. You’ll ponder the values you’re called to take a stand for. You’ll consider the superpowers you can bring to your audience. And you’ll ponder how to shape your first offering in a way that engages these actual people, rather than getting lost in your head.

Launching a consulting business in our marketplace isn’t just about making money. Today’s creative thinkers must solve problems that challenge tired narratives about who’s worthy of opportunity and imagine new ways for purpose to influence profit. In this interactive webinar, you'll explore how to:

*Map your market sweet spot *Conduct a field study of what's out there, so you can stand out *Create a pilot for your first offering, so you can validate your idea

It’s designed for:

*Purpose-driven professionals pondering a side-gig or business idea *Freelancers in their first year of building a purpose-driven brand *Employees who know the pain of living one foot in and one foot out, at a job they once enjoyed but now holds them back *Individuals who’ve been laid off and now have an inkling that self-employment could become a viable path instead *Those who care about about social, economic, on environmental justice and want to use their talents to make a difference
