A while back when I was promoting People Powered, I was invited to go on a podcast all about consulting. As a consultant, it is rare that I get an opportunity to be interviewed about the business itself as opposed to the focus and subject of my work. Little did I know I would be interviewed by a consulting mastermind.
Michael Zipursky runs Consulting Success and provides a range of services that help consultants run successful, profitable businesses. Outside of our interview, we became friends and I have learned a huge amount from Michael about what he has learned from working with hundreds of consultants. He has a great resource on How To Start a Consulting Business that I recommend.
As such, I was thrilled that he was open to joining me on Conversations With Bacon.
We get into a lot of really interesting discussion and topics, which include:
- How much experience is needed to be a consultant
- How to find clients and business more effectively
- The role of media and publicity in growing a consulting business
- How to approach adversity and challenges, especially when a solo consultant
- How to balance being an expert and being a good listener
- How to structure what your value proposition is and what mistakes people commonly make
- …and much more…
Be sure to give this discussion a listen!
