Is Consulting Right for You?

In this first session of the Consulting Basics for Professionals series, Boldt president Lesli Boldt will draw from her own experience – and that of other entrepreneurs – to walk you through the basics of consulting and help your decide whether consulting is right for you. Topics we’ll cover:

  • The risks and rewards of consulting – living with risk
  • How long does it take to land your first contract?
  • The difference between being a consultant and an employee
  • How to approach clients needs
  • Setting boundaries
  • Scheduling and flexibility – it's a two-way street
  • Pricing – what the heck do I charge?
  • Income variability - living with the ups and downs of the business cycle
  • How to get business - networking and marketing
  • Working from home or working from an office

Lesli and her guests will share their experiences and the choices they’ve made in striking out on their own. 

Guest entrepreneur: Marnie Goldenberg, Writer and Founder, Sexplainer
