#72: How to Start Your Consulting Career

When building a business or even establishing a new project or initiative, there are some things that you can do to help you have the best start. These are my insights and advice from the lessons I’ve learnt from building my own business.

In this episode I share the importance of understanding the problem you are trying to solve and who you are trying to help. I talk about why you need to know who your ideal client is and what your ideal projects look like. I share the importance of using your network to get the word out there about what you do. And I talk about balancing current clients, getting new clients and how to promote yourself on social media.

 

“The number one piece of advice I would give is to work out what problem it is you are trying to solve.” Tara Humphrey
