Business Guide - How to become a Consultant

If you’ve got a whole lot of knowledge and experience in a specific topic or field, some businesses might regard your insight highly enough to pay for you to come in and advise them as a freelance consultant.

Becoming a consultant allows you to focus on what you excel at. No more ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’, you can create a niche for yourself as the pre-eminent brain-for-hire on the subject you know most about.

As a freelance consultant, you’re now the master of your trade, as well as the master of your own destiny.

Of course, freelancing (which means you’re self-employed) can come with its disadvantages as well. In this guide, we’ll be covering the pros and cons of becoming a freelance consultant to help you figure out whether this is the right move for you. We’ll also provide you with some handy tips on finding and keeping clients.
