Top 5 business trends

Via Nuwire, here’s a list of the top five business trends:

  1. Outsourcing
  2. Exporting
  3. Senior living
  4. Global tourism
  5. Internet-related business

Add those to your list of ideas for consulting businesses, whether you’re trying to Discover Your Inner Consultant or simply reposition your existing business.

As a consultant, I am certainly taking advantage of the trend in outsourcing. Heck, I even outsource some of my work to other consultants. I also export my services to clients in other countries — and I sometimes hire consultants from other places, too. One of my clients specializes in global tourism, so I’ve had to research that market. And both my marketing company and Consultant Journal are Internet-related.

The only trend I have yet to pursue is senior living.

How about you?
