3 Strategies Consultants Need Now

I just got a bill from my accountant with charges for preparing and filing my taxes. They charge $250 per hour.

That leaves me with two questions:

Why $250 per hour?

Why so many hours?

Every time my accountant bills me, I am near having a fit.

I always, always have that undercurrent feeling of uncertainty. For some reason, it costs $4,000 every year to do my taxes. Why?

I have no idea if all these hours are justified, if all deductions and exceptions were applied to the max, or how accurate my tax report is.

I trust them, but …. that subtle discomfort and doubt are always there when I need to fork over .

And that is how a lot of #consulting work is being done these days.

How to leave your job to start a business


Do you want to leave your job right now but have not figured out how to make the transition?

I am going to share with you three strategies that help you move forward with more certainty and confidence.

I know many of my colleagues promote that approach. But I am more on the side of safeguarding your physical, mental, and financial well-being. 

To do that, you will need to build three things:

  • Create a product or service that people want
