Being an independent consultant has never been easier or more accepted than today. An independent consulting practice can generate significant income, provide you with flexibility and control over your schedule, and allow you to home in on the work you love to do most. Yet more than 50 percent of these practices will fail in the first few years.

If you’ve pondered the idea of going out on your own, you’ll want to join this webcast led by Kris Taylor, who has had a successful, six-figure consulting practice for 14 years, and Katie Workman, who has launched a successful practice in under a year.

Kris and Katie will help you discern if you have what it takes to go out on your own and will share five indicators that independent consulting may not be for you. Going out on your own is a big step, and this webcast can help you determine if you should take the leap from corporate to consulting. By participating in Kris and Katie's webcast, you will learn:

  • helpful and clear ways to judge if independent consulting is for you
  • key indicators that consulting may not be for you
  • ways to go forward if you decide to pursue independent consulting.
