Meaning. Wealth. Freedom. Contribution.
THE LOUD MINDS
& BIG HEARTS.
Skilled professionals, reclaim your time and energy working on projects you want to, with people you admire without quitting your full-time job.
The world seems to be going sideways.
2020 was the best year my company Maven Magpie Consulting recorded. On a personal level I have been on my A-game right from creative expansion, personal growth to working with some of the brightest minds.
I know many were not as fortunate and I get the pressure of being in a corporate job, not knowing if you will have your steady paycheck the next day. It woke many people up to all the choices they’ve made that weren’t working: their intimate relationships, careers and health.
As you can imagine thousands of employers are making adjustments to cater to this new normal.
Unfortunately, this has led to layoffs in the millions, salary cuts, and added a heavier workload on an already over-stretched, worn down workforce who aren’t sure if they’ll have a position in 6 months.
I don’t know about you, but this is pressure I wouldn’t want as an employee.
Especially if I have a family, a mortgage, or find myself having to tap into my savings to cover rent or health insurance.
Friends of mine from my previous life in the corporate world are doing the work of 3 of their co-workers that were made irrelevant and they’re in senior management no less!
But if you ask me this is a scary place for anyone to find themselves in.
We don’t know what the normal will be exactly but you can use this time working from home to build your consulting empire and a personal economy should the world continue going sideways.
(Spoiler alert: it always will, we can only rely on ourselves)
The upside according to a study for people working from home:
Productivity has increased
Employees feel that time management has become more flexible
The costs of commuting and maintaining offices have declined
Businesses have greater accessibility to global and diverse talent
Oh hi, I’m Neelam Tewar.
I am the Chief Mischief Maker at Maven Magpie Consulting where I get up to all kinds of awesomeness as a conscious growth, visibility strategist and impact-whisperer to high network individuals, ethical corporations and other high-performers around the world.
If there’s just one other thing you could know about it me it’s that:
I want help more experienced, talented, multi-faceted and skilled people embrace consulting either part time or full-time.
The Minimalist Consultant Program.
This program has every single thing I have done learnt and implemented over the last two decades.
But moreover, it is exactly how I run my location-independent consulting which allows me to work with clients, companies and educational institutions the world over.
My intention and commitment with The Minimalist Consultant is to create a global community of thinkers and doers who want to gradually build a separate revenue stream by leveraging their current skillsets gained in their professional careers.
Just like I did.
It is my deep desire to put wealth and freedom in the hands of impact-focused people. Joyful people make a happier planet. They build better things and are kinder humans.
I dunno about you but I think the world can use more of that.
The Minimalist Consultant Ethos:
Getting things done.
Active learning and putting into play right away. It’s practical and everything I use in my business.
Like-minded peers.Humans whose values are similar to you (and me) with the intention of building something they don’t need a break from.
Supportive group from all over the world helping each other with kindness and compassion; this is a highly curated experience.
Getting started (sans perfection).
Helping you start consulting perfectly imperfectly especially if you have a full-time job right now.
The Minimalist Consultant Curriculum.
Values, mission and vision for your consulting business.
Know, engage and activate your audience based on your core values.
Build content that resonates with your audience and helps you engage with them meaningfully.
Create your offer formats and pricing model so you can pitch with ease.
Learn how sales works, what to ask, convert without feeling the icky sales talk.
You don’t have to be loud to be seen, I’ll share my quiet marketing method with you.
The Minimalist Consultant Community isn't for you if:
If you want just want to make a quick buck and do not actually have any interest in helping others by way of your services
If you can’t commit to learning, implementing, testing, and playing the long game; if you want to consume feel-good content without putting it into practical effect, none of my offers will be right for you
If you don’t think entrepreneurship is an option for your personality type (it’s cool, we all have our strengths and life goals)
I was raised across four continents: Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. In some ways, I was a nomad before it became commonplace.
Since then I’ve been able to:
build a location-independent consulting business that lets me travel to feed my curiosity, my art (writing short stories & fiction) and my nomadic heart.
wrote my first book of poetry.
work with high net-worth individuals, creatives/artists and other exemplary minds around the world. My area of focus, contribution and fun: strategic consulting and mentoring.
Today my company employs like-minded humans on 3 continents, and is growing to cater to companies in the areas of executive leadership training and mentoring.
invited to prestigious stages like TEDx, International Council of Small Business, UNESCO and then some.
more recently, I was interviewed on FORBES to share my views on consulting.
My eventful life has taken me from schooling to living in different parts of the world for work and other personal pursuits, which I’d like to believe has given me friends all over the globe, the gift of tolerance, and kept the wanderlust-er in me well nourished.
After over a decade in corporate America working for international pharmaceutical & FMCG brands on digital strategy, media, and advertising, I felt I wasn’t living up to my most sincere potential to help contribute and elevate humanity in a way only I could.
So far it has been a fulfilling ride and taken me to stages across the world, with two TEDx invitations, writing my first book of poetry, and working with soulful men and smart women who want to earnestly create more impact and build their Empire of Good in the world.
Yes, every now and then I pinch myself, and often, my work humbles me in ways I never thought was ever possible.
I Am Not For Everyone.
I care. I show it.
I can be intense. I love solving complex challenges.
I tell the truth. I test my truth.
Everything I do is hinged on creating value and that means, every solution I am party to must create ease, peace and simplicity...with all the soul I can muster in me and everyone who is naturally drawn to my way of doing, well, the doing.
My teaching, speaking and consulting approach is rooted in enthusiasm and open-mindedness. It matters in all I do that I bend the knee at the altar of strategy, vision, mission and integrity while having fun.
Love and here’s to your legacy,
Industries I have helped transform.

Working with Neelam has helped me achieve a functional plan to live my life according to my own rules. Neelam has a unique system of helping us visualize our true potential and she works with us to achieve our goals. I enrolled in her group program which made me feel like I was part of a community of like-minded people, who were finally ready like I was to change my life; with other people it became easier to open up and express our feelings. I thought I may not be able to open up in front of strangers but Neelam is very particular about who she takes on. She is precise and knows the energy she wants in her groups. I received the guidance I knew was waiting for me from a beautiful soul and gained some lifelong friends. What I loved was that, she gave an individualized plan after we were done with the program, so I could stay on track with everything we had outlined for me to focus on. Thank you, Neelam!
