How to start a consulting business: A curated list of resources

May 05, 2021

This is a curated list of resources that helped me starting my consulting career.

It covers what consulting is about, why freelancing and consulting are not the same thing, marketing, positioning, how to tame that good amount of self-doubt that you'll have.

And highlight a few skills that you have to nurture: coaching, and leadership.

Whether you are a software developer, data scientist, or product owner, that wants to switch, you'll find these resources useful.

The tl;dr version

  1. You're not paid to code
  2. Learn how to connect people's problems to your skills
  3. Billing hours won't get you far
  4. Learn how to get clients
  5. Niche down
  6. Solve expensive problems
