Interested in entering the consulting business? Already have a consulting practice but want to take its profits to the next level? 90 Days to Success in Consulting provides an action plan for success in the ultra-competitive consulting industry. The book is designed to logically take you through the major consulting topics and provide action items to be done in the next 90 days for immediate business functions, as well as for planning the future phases of your consulting journey. The book covers the various opportunities available, including the traps and pitfalls to avoid, ensuring a successful career as a consultant.
Ok, the 90-day promise of the title you need to take with some suspicion, but it is surprisingly crisp and practical, with a lot of anecdotal evidence. Of course, it seems to assume you have some ambition that is larger than a one-person company, but that is in my opinion pretty refreshing.
In all, a very good book, that I even believe some new-fangled entrepreneurs could learn something from, at the start-up stage.
