- You’re always going to have challenges.
- Shift your perspective.
- Beginner consultants go too broad.
- You have to take your skills and knowledge and find a niche.
- A client is not paying you on your hours. They hire you because they have a problem and want to find an outcome.
- What’s the value of what the customer wants?
- Get clear on where you’re spending your time.
- What are you doing that isn’t valuable or enjoyable?
- Just because you can do something faster doesn’t mean that it’s more cost effective for you to do it.
