Episode Info: Want to prepare your business to run without you? Meet Angela Henderson. In Episode 49 of the Bean Ninjas Podcast, Bean Ninjas CEO Meryl Johnston talks to consulting expert Angela Henderson about how you can build a business which will bring you revenue – even while you are asleep. Angela Henderson was a full-time trained mental health clinician for 15+ years. She was diagnosing patients suffering from schizophrenia, depression, autism, etc. After the birth of her son, she started an online baby and kids shop Finlee and Me. She invested the last 7 years in her e-commerce business, which is currently selling over 1400 products. A few years ago, Angela realised that many people were frequently asking her for professional advice, and around that time, she decided to get into consulting. “A little over two years ago, I just looked at my diary and I realized that I had 8 coffee dates, where people wanted to pick my brain, in one month, and the same in the next month. And that’s what Angela Henderson kind of formed from, it was never in the plan. But I was just like, hold on a minute, if 16 people want to pick my brain, I had to drive there, pay for my own diet coke, drive back, give advice. If I charge people, I can have a secondary business.” Now, Angela is a business consultant working mainly with women. She provides them the foundational framework they need in order to develop a sustainable business.

She discovered that there were a number of clients who wanted to work with her, but couldn’t afford her VIP services. That was when she realised that there was a need, so she decided to find a product to fit that need. If you are in a similar situation, Angela’s advice to you is to write down everything that you are doing with VIP clients. Based on that, you can develop a course or program. This will ensure a steady monthly income. Additionally, you can implement live calls and “hot seats” every month, and spend 3-4 hours with a larger group of people.
