I know, I know: you want to quit your lousy job NOW, and jump into consulting full-time. That’s what I wanted to do too when I started, and what most people first think when they decide to start a consulting business. In the video below, I’ll tell you exactly why quitting your job to start a consulting business is one of the WORST things you can do.
There’s a much better way to start a consulting business: do it part-time, while keeping your full-time day job. There are a couple of great benefits to starting your business part-time, because your day job will:
- pay your bills, AND
- fund your consulting business.
How to create time for your part-time consulting business
One of the great things about a consulting business is that it doesn’t require a lot of up-front costs like most other businesses.
But, starting a consulting business DOES require time–and time is in short supply when you have a full-time job–plus a family, and maybe even a life.
You already know that creating a successful consulting business will change your life. But where are you going to get time to build your business? How can you start your consulting business on the side while working at your day job?
In the video below, I’ll show you some specific strategies you can use to re-purpose some of your time during your day so you can invest it in building your consulting business. Some of these changes might not be easy, and you’ll probably need to get a bit creative and scrappy, but they’ll be temporary–until you grow your consulting business to the point where it allows you to quit your day job.
