I’ve almost been where you are, Mama.
You’re feeling overwhelmed trying to manage career and family.
Some days, just getting out the door in the morning is a major challenge.
A lost sock or last-minute diaper change has the potential to ruin the whole day.
You feel sick at the thought of leaving your sweet baby at daycare.
You’re already thinking of how you’ll miss first steps, first words and school plays because of work.
But, there’s also another side to you.
Your work actually excites you.
And, before you had children, you loved your job.
You’d hate to miss the milestones that come with exceeding a new customer’s expectations, delivering exceptional work, and celebrating the impact you have.
Your colleagues look up to you.
You’re not ready to throw in the towel on your years of education and high-level corporate experience.
But, you just don’t know what your options are.
Fifteen years ago, I was ALMOST in your shoes.
You see, I didn’t know that a consulting business was an option until it fell in my lap.
After the internet start-up company I was a part of crashed and burned, a 20-hour/week consulting job fell in my lap as I was job searching for a VP-Operations position.
Five weeks in, I told my recruiter to cancel the job search. Consulting was the life for me.
So, I took the leap and never looked back.
The scary part is, had my company not gone belly up, had my expertise not been so high-level that I couldn’t snag a VP job in a hot second, and had this consulting job that would ‘tide me over’ not fallen into my lap, I would likely be exactly where you are, slogging along in the corporate world trying to maintain a high-level workload and salary all while managing a home and a family.
I’m here to tell you, there is a different way to raise your baby and do the work you love.
You can have the best of both worlds, without sacrificing your time or your paycheck.
Mama, don’t lean in. Walk out.
You can have all these things and more by using your expert skills in your own successful consulting business.
How do I know this?
Because that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for fifteen years.
And, all the while, I’ve not sacrificed my income or career trajectory.
If I can do it, I know you can do it.
And, I’m offering you the hand-up I never had.
My mission is to liberate corporate working mothers by helping them build a thriving consulting business while avoiding the pitfalls I ran into.
Pitfalls like what?
And, those pitfalls didn’t just slow me down. They cost me money.
They kept me from earning my potential in the early days of my business.
Does that sound scary or overwhelming?
Don’t let it. It’s actually easier than you think to get started and you’ve got me to guide you through the process of building a thriving consulting business.
The mission of Billable with Baby® is to both inspire and equip you to start your own consulting business so you can have the freedom and flexibility to raise your children the way you wish, without sacrificing the career you’ve spent so long building. You can replace the full-time income your family needs, while still being fully present in their lives.
The Billable with Baby® Signature Program will take you from being an overworked, overwhelmed corporate mom to being a well-paid, highly-respected, joy-filled mom and consultant.
Don’t take my word for it, though. Here’s what some of my students have had to say:
"Amy Rasdal, Billable with Baby, and the Billable with Baby Land a Project Now program came into my life with such divine timing. I was just a month away from leaving my corporate job when I first chatted with Amy and suddenly I felt less alone in my endeavor and more confident with my decision. You can tell she genuinely likes to help other moms and has the knowledge and experience to back up the info she shares.
The Land a Project Now program actually launched right when I left my job so it was the PERFECT time to be working with Amy. Our group was small but that ended up working out well. We all got to know each other on a personal level which made me feel more comfortable sharing my fears and insecurities. It's scary to leave the "comfort" of a steady paycheck but when you see the success of others and know you have their support all of a sudden you a have new "comfort" and things just seem to work out. I credit this group 100% with the new found confidence in myself which helped me to land my first client, as well as charge a higher rate with the next client! "
- Katie Malone, Digital Marketing Consultant, Katie Malone Marketing
"Participating in Amy Rasdal’s Billable With Baby “Land a Project Now” challenge was an extremely valuable experience for me. In this program, Amy provides a clear, step-by-step pathway to landing consulting projects and provides the necessary support for success. The clean, structured approach that Amy has developed from years of juggling motherhood and successful consulting practices, is an unbeatable and unique experience. If you are a mom interested in starting a part time or full time consulting practice, or have started your practice but have not yet made much progress, I definitely recommend Amy’s “Land a Project Now” challenge. This program saves you a lot of time and energy by learning consulting best practices quickly and effectively, from someone who has been doing it successfully for so many years."
- Alina Stromberg, Founder, Aleevi
"Amy has done a fantastic job breaking down the pieces of creating a consulting business to make it actionable for anyone who wants to do this work but doesn’t know how to get started. I also said that as much as it’s geared toward working mothers, ANYONE can benefit from this process."
- Susanna Shore, Founder, SGS Consulting
How will we accomplish all of this?
The program guides you through every stage of your journey and focuses on generating revenue as you build a sustainable consulting business.
1. Self-paced course work
When you sign-up, you get immediate access to the course and all materials so you can go through it at your own pace and in the order you want. Each of the 14 modules includes videos, tools, templates, and a workbook to help you succeed. And, you have access for the lifetime of the course, including all future updates and additions.
2. Bimonthly group coaching for 3 months
We’ll have live calls twice a month where you can either submit questions in advance or ask questions live on the call. These coaching opportunities will be recorded and can be accessed in the course dashboard. These calls are a great opportunity to not only get feedback and work through challenges, but to also have accountability support as you grow your consulting business.
3. Ongoing support and community in our private Facebook group.
Never underestimate the power of like-minded people! You will get private access to the course only Facebook group, where you can connect with other ambitious mothers starting and running successful consulting businesses. This is the place to post your questions, share your progress and wins, and get support through your struggles. And, aside from having access to me throughout the week, the larger benefit of this feature is the ability to learn from other intelligent, like-minded women. I personally learn something every time I go into the group even though I’ve been consulting for more than 15 years.
So, are you ready to get started and become billable by next week?

Every day spent slogging away at your corporate job is one day you’re missing being at home with your baby. And, it’s also one day longer to building a life that really does offer the best of both worlds.
You know, people sometimes ask me, “What can I learn from you that I couldn’t figure out on my own?” I always reply, “Absolutely nothing, but it took me 15 years, how long do you want to wait?”
Because, if this program can help you start billing one day sooner, it will have paid for itself.
Still unsure? Have a few more questions?
I really do know what you’re thinking, mama. If you’re struggling with the decision but would like to make sure this leap will work for you, I’d love to hop on a call with you to get a sense of your expertise and chat through whether or not you’d be a good fit.
I’m a working Mom of two kids, ages 15 and 5. I traded my corporate job for consulting and make more money than most executives. I live a blended life with hardly any boundaries. I work and play every day. I typically work half my work day during the day and the other half at night. I take several professional level dance classes a week and water-ski every other Friday morning. Although I love to cook, these days we mostly live on raw fruits and vegetables, peanut butter and frozen burritos. I’m quick on the mute button and I can tell you a foolproof way to do a professional conference call from Disneyland.
