The World of Consultany Business & Opportunities; an Overview

As awesome as it may sound, there’s nothing easy about consulting. Many professionals aspire to start their own consulting business but only a handful of them turn out to be successful.

Because the consulting world isn’t as glamorous as it seems. Yes, it is a great career path, but it is downright hard. But if you have the moxie, you should totally go for it!

Before setting up, you need to do some good amount of research on how to start your own consulting business. Understand what goes into consulting, the goods, the bads, and the uglies of this field. It’s best to start planning a year or two ahead.


Once you’re convinced, it’s best to start right from where you are. Build relationships within your current work environment with colleagues, suppliers, competitors – anyone who will be a good contact for you in times of need.

Prepare solid grounds for your business i.e. certifications, licencing, registrations etc. Work on the skills you require. Knowledge is the one most important weapon you need to equip yourself with. Don’t forget to map out a complete business plan.

Once you’re prepared to start the business, stick to your plan. Focus on marketing, because it plays a key role in your business selling. Most of the consultancy clients come from direct marketing, so before running any paid advertising campaigns, try exploring the free side of social and business networks online.
