Are you a full time employee dreaming of something more? Perhaps you long for more quality time with your family? Perhaps a bigger income? Perhaps a better work/life balance? The opportunity to choose which jobs to say yes to, and when you want to say no.
If you’re nodding your head in agreement and thinking ‘yes please!' - read on. Consulting could be right for you.
First things first; while we here at Leap into Consulting™ are fully aware of the benefits that becoming a consultant offers (flexibility, potential income, more time with loved ones, the opportunity to work on projects you’re passionate about - amongst many others), it would be amiss to claim it’s for everyone.
So let’s discuss the tougher side of consulting first:
To become a consultant means running your own business. To put it simply; you’ll need to do your own taxes (or hire an accountant), fix your own IT issues, and rely on solely on your self-motivation to complete projects. There will be no boss (aside from yourself!) checking that you’re in the office. As a consultant, all of this is down to you.
If you're still with us and consider this a small pay off for the freedom to choose your own working hours - fantastic. You’ve passed the toughest hurdle.
Now let’s talk about the practical side of setting up your business:
You’ll need to ask yourself a few questions to discover what works for you. What type of work do you enjoy? What do you not enjoy? Where are your strengths and weaknesses? How many hours a week do you wish to work?
While we can’t answer these questions for you, we can guide you through them alongside others. In fact, we run a mini ‘Is Consulting Right For You’ course to guide people through this process. Join us to explore your options.
Now - we say as we rub our hands with glee - onto the best part of consulting. The reason we've loved what we do for 25 years.
Let's explore the benefits of consulting.
- The freedom to grow a career and business that you love.
- The freedom to work from almost anywhere in the world.
- The freedom to spend more time with loved ones.
- The freedom to spend time on personal development as well as professional.
- The freedom to increase your income in the way you choose.
- The freedom to adjust your work/life balance.
- The freedom to look after your physical and mental health.
- The list really does go on, but we think you get the idea.
