So You Want to Be a Consultant?
Are you ready to work for yourself? Do you have expertise you’d like to share? Are you inspired to create something new? What’s your tolerance for risk and uncertainty?
Join us for a down-and-dirty discussion about building your business. We’ll talk about self-promotion (not a dirty word), how much to charge, bidding jobs, managing your time, and juggling…lots of juggling. We’ll cover:
— Different business models…and how to structure yours
— Using your networks to recruit clients
— The myth of billable hours
— Why the consultant should never work harder than the client
— Why training is the best marketing
Come with your questions. We will stick around at the end to answer…them…all.
