Become a consultant | Ideas for consultants

For the past while, I’ve been writing a job series called "Become a Consultant". Each time, I provide an idea for a kind of consultant you could become. I’ll continue to update this series on a regular basis. However, I wanted to invite you — my readers — to provide ideas for kinds of consultants you’d like to become. Remember, becoming a consultant is a great way to start working from home. If you want a second job where you’re in control, consider this exciting career path. If you’re really stumped for ideas, consider downloading my Discover Your Inner Consultant guide.
