ABOUT THE BOOK
Starting a consulting business is one of the best ways to leverage your expertise into a profitable career. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, consulting is predicted to be the industry with the largest growth from 2008 to 2018. Depending on your skills and experience, starting a consulting business can be done quickly and affordably.
In his book, Getting Started as A Consultant, Alan Weiss, Ph.D. defines consulting as the application of talents, expertise, experiences and other relevant attributes, which results in an improvement in the clients condition, (p. 1). In essence, a consultant uses his knowledge to identify problems, recommend solutions, and assist in making change.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
You have a business license, a contract and an office, but without clients, you dont have a business. Once youve done the busy work to establish your business, your most important task is marketing. Even when you have clients, marketing is crucial to ensuring you always have enough work to stay in business.
The first rule of marketing is realize that its not about you. That might sound like a contradiction since marketing is about enticing clients to hire you. But clients dont buy you for how great you are or how many letters appear after your name. They buy the results you can give them.
