How to Start a Consulting Business - an Overview

You can become a superhero possessing superpowers working super hours earning super pay as a consultant earning billable hours from anywhere in the world. While this may seem too good to be true, it may be that you haven’t yet met Amy Rasdal from Billable at the Beach who left her corporate job to live out her dream lifestyle while earning more than ever before. 

The truth about your own life is that you have a gift and you can make the world a better place by serving others with your gift. You can change your own life by charging billable hours while serving others with your gifts.

Another truth is that the gig economy is rising and companies need people with superpowers (specific skills and talents) for projects and problem-solving. These companies may not be able to keep someone on the payroll full-time, but they also can’t afford to let these problems continue to plague them. That’s where you may come in for the rescue, then fly off to the sunset after a hard day’s work.

Three Simple Steps on How to Start a Consulting Business

  • What is it you’re going to sell?
  • Make a list of people you’re going to tell what you sell.
  • Let the people on your list know you’re in business.
  • “Done is better than perfect!” - Amy Rasdal
