I've been talking about this with a friend and he asked me: How do you get your first customers for a cunsulting business? What do you think are the best ways?
All the answers make an assumption not in evidence. Before you even think about starting a consulting business you must be laser focused on what business problems you solve and then have a crystal clear methodology to solve the problems. People want to buy from someone who knows their business but who also has a vision for how to solve the problem.
Why don't you post your value proposition and why people should engage you?
