Don't go in the water without this consulting life preserver if you're just starting out, OR you're not making enough money. This book pulled the entire strategy of developing a top flight practice completely together for me with the why's, what's, and how's. Once you've read this book, move onto the other books by Mr. Weiss. He gives invaluable advice and walks his talk. Each and every time I have contacted him via email, I have been floored that he not only responds to my messages in a thoughtful way, but he does so before I expect it -- and I'm not a client, mentoree, etc. So stop schlepping your services, GET THIS BOOK, follow his advice, and read all the others you can find. NOt only does Getting Started... tell you what to do, it tells you WHY you need to do it and then how to use it. The reason I found this so enlightening is because I came from an industry in which MANAGEMENT SKILLS are avoided like the plague and effective, strategic marketing skills are theories, at best. In fact, if you're working for someone, you'd be wise to get this book and start thinking like you're on your own. After all, it's a guarantee that you will be one day in this marketplace.

I found this to be a good resource to guide me as I considered setting up an independent consulting business. Practical rather than prescriptive advice and guidance. Comprehensive without being authoritative.
