How can you tell if a potential consulting engagement is right for you? How can you know what to charge, so you’re happy if you get the engagement or you don’t? When you define success for yourself as a consultant, you can create the consulting business you want. You’ll take the right gigs and decline the others. It’s a matter of defining your version of success.

You’ll learn to define the kind of role you want, for the kind of clients you want, so you can create your successful consulting practice.
