Independent consulting is not for everyone. Do you have the discipline, drive and determination to leave your day job, set up your own office, sell yourself every day, produce first-rate work and keep track of a thousand mundane details that have nothing to do with being creative? If you think you might, you need grounding in the basics of the job, how to set yourself up for success and how to thrive. Like any good consultant, author Joel Gendelman presents what you need to know in clear, concise prose. He covers every detail and offers solutions to problems you probably didn’t think even existed. Worksheets and questionnaires help you analyze your strengths and weaknesses and understand all aspects of the consulting business. getAbstract recommends this fast – but by no means superficial – read, which aspiring and working consultants will return to again and again.
