Bette Frick says that you should treat your one person consulting practice as if it were a big company. Present a variety of services, have people that you can vend stuff to, incorporate (I know a big headache, but people take you more seriously as a corp. than as a sole-proprietorship.)

I also read these:

The Well-Fed Writer: Financial Self-Sufficiency As a Freelance Writer in Six Months or Less <> by Peter Bowerman

Secrets of a Freelance Writer, Second Edition : How To Make $85,000 A Year <> by Robert W. Bly

I read Bly's book a dozen or so times, I really liked it.

Guerrilla Marketing Excellence : The 50 Golden Rules for Small-Business Success <> by Jay Conrad Levinson

Beating the Odds: 10 Smart Steps to Small-Business Success <> by Scott A. Clark

Hope that helps ya.



I got out of Babylon, but there was no Zion. No Promised Land.

George asks:
I need to learn more about the business/marketing side of being a
consultant. Can anyone recommend any good books to get started?
Professional organizations for grant writers or freelance writers? Web
based tools to help one manage one's business? Any other suggestions?
