4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Is your practice almost successful? Do you often end up in contractual agreements that limit your ability to do what the client really needs? Do you find it ironic that you consult to businesses, but the business of your own practice is cumbersome? Are you doing what you want? Or just what clients ask of you?
You undoubtedly have some expertise of value to corporate clients. But just hanging out a shingle will not make you a successful consultant. Solo consulting is an odd business model, and too many of us learn it the hard way. So in the hope of shortening your learning curve, I offer some lessons that only became clear in the last part of my 45 year practice.
In this era of the squiggly career path, your journey is likely to be a mix of full- time employment, part-time work, contract work and consulting. And whether consulting is a full-time commitment or a temporary bridge strategy, you will need to know how to operate a sustainable and satisfying practice.
