    Excellent Resource For Any Would-Be Consultant

    How to Open & Operate a Financially Successful Consulting Business is perfect for people who are considering either becoming their own boss or adding extra income on top of their existing job. Before any hasty decisions, author Kristie Lorette has you take a self-assessment test to make sure you are making the right choice. Lorette has 14 years of experience and she walks you through the process - from determining what type of consultant you should be to finding the right office space to surrounding yourself with the right people to business plans. She also walks you through what fees you could charge, managing your time so you can be effective for your clients, managing your expenses and how to build your brand, among other things. There are also case studies of successful consultants from different fields. She writes in a clear style that is neither too esoteric nor too simplistic and a checklist prefaces each chapter so you know what you will need to focus on. The book is 282 pages, hardly an intimidating read and there is even a companion CD-ROM that has a business plan template that you can use in Word. It's not a book that promises you the moon, but it can help you build the rocket ship to reach your goals.
