If you have valuable insight and expertise you want to share, then starting a consulting business is a great way to monetize your strategic approach, skills and experience. Consultants come in many different types with specialists in hundreds of niches using thousands of varied skills and techniques.
Other businesses hire consulting experts because they want to “buy in” expert opinions, ideas and resources that don’t exist in their organization already. If you have a proven track record of transforming businesses for the better, you can turn that into paid insight, exchanging your time and skill set for well-paid consulting jobs. Consulting provides deep insight to an organization without them having to hire expert staff on a permanent or long-term basis.
