Being a consultant has never been easier or more accepted than it is 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 most. Yet more than 50 percent of these practices 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 15 years, and Katie McNamee, who is approaching four years as a digital marketing consultant.

Taylor and McNamee will help you discern if you have what it takes to become a consultant and will share five indicators that independent consulting may not be for you. Departing from a full-time permanent role is a big step, and this webcast can help you determine if you should take the leap from corporate to consulting.

By participating in this webcast, you will learn:
• helpful and clear ways to judge if consulting is for you
• key indicators that consulting may not be for you
• ways to go forward if you decide to pursue independent consulting.
