I am the type of person that has to write things down in order to be able to function. As weird as this sounds, there’s something about sitting down and taking the time to plan out my day that helps me relax. This is probably a big reason as to why I started blogging three years ago and why I like the consulting industry.
Anyone can be a consultant in a specific niche and industry if they wanted to. At its core, all you really need is to know more about something than the next person and you can begin helping others. If you wanted to get paid for it, the best thing to do would be to set up your own LLC (which doesn’t take much effort) and get your customers to recommend you to others.
Consulting is not for those who don’t want to work. Although some consultants do find a way to make and sell their own products, there’s a lot of time and effort that goes into trying to ensure that a client’s problem is resolved. Therefore, do not go and hang your own shingle if you are not ready to put in the long hours (years) that it will take to be successful. And if you are, get ready to have the most fun and hell of an experience that you’ve ever had.
I am not here to convince anyone to hire a consultant. But if you are in need of one, check out my LinkedIn page and learn more about my experience and skill set. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!
