441: $225k in 18 Hours a Week: The Path to High-Paying Consulting Gigs

Last year, Brad Rice booked $225,000 worth of Salesforce consulting work. That's impressive on its own, but what's crazier is he only worked an average of 18 hours a week. Brad took his existing skills and experience with a popular software product, and pivoted to become a remote freelance consultant. This is the "SWAS" strategy: Software with a Service. (We’ve heard from guests following a similar path with Asana and Quickbooks.) If you're not familiar with Salesforce, it's the #1 CRM (customer relationship management) software in the world. Businesses and non-profits of all sizes use the software to organize and manage the back-end of their sales efforts. And on the other side, there’s a community of salesforce professionals who support those customers … and earn up to $230 an hour to do so. Why are the rates so high? Supply and demand — there's a gap between the popularity of Salesforce and the number of experts like Brad who can help with it. That's the opportunity I think you should know about.
