How To Start A Profitable Consulting Business
Thinking of starting your own consulting or service business? Learn what it takes to become a highly paid consultant or service provider.
Are you a lawyer, engineer, accountant, architect, business development or IT professional who is highly skilled and now want to turn your many years of experience and talent into a business?
Service or consulting business is one of the easiest and profitable business to start and run.
Why? Because the business is you. They are thousands of clients out there ready to pay you for the skills that you already have. Maybe you are already consulting by providing your friends and family ‘free advice’. Maybe you’ve realized a lot of people come to you to ‘help’. What if you learn how to package this as a business?
In most instances, when you are starting a service or consulting business you don’t have to put a lot of infrastructure. You don’t have to start with an office, employees and other things that a lot of business that deals with products need. With a company profile, business cards and knowing how to get your clients you can be a consultant today.
Getting your first client can also be easy if you know what you are doing. For example, you can start with one client from a networking event or even a family member. That way, you are able to grow your consultancy business one day at a time.
Unfortunately, most skilled professional’s i.e. lawyers, engineers, accountants, architects, and IT professionals etc are not good at marketing.
The hardest part of running a consultancy or service business is learning how to market it and get new clients. Of course, you have to offer value for money, and be good at what you offer, but many times, a consultancy or service business fails not because it’s not good at its primary mission or what they do, but because it’s poor at marketing.

I have been working for an audit firm for seven years and every now and then I receive requests to ‘check’ other peoples books of accounts. Mostly, it’s from friends and relatives. While I didn’t mind doing this as a one-off, I realized that the people who I checked their books kept coming back for more but they were not paying. That’s when I realized that I have something special to offer and If I packaged it well I could do some business. I decided to go online and research how to charge for your consulting service and that’s how I discovered this course. Attending their training has helped me package what I am offering to my audit and accounting clients and most importantly how to charge for my service. I now have 6 clients who pay between K’sh 17,500 to K’sh 45,500 for my accounting services. I am planning to quit employment when I get to 15 clients which should be in the next one year. I am grateful for the far I’ve come.
