how to become a consultant

Today’s Private Practice Resource: Hosting

When I first decided to become a consultant, it was on purpose. I asked many people about how to become a consultant and I couldn’t figure out the steps. Before I go further, I should take you back a bit.

I had this mentality that if I made money, I would be in one category and if I helped people, I’d be in another. Maybe it’s because most of the business majors at my college were jerks and I associated making money with being a jerk.

Then I realized that it wasn’t the money, but the attitude toward the money. If I make tons of money and do it in a way that is unethical or hurts people, clearly that’s wrong. Yet, if I am true to what I believe in, then I can’t help but feel good about my work.

If someone comes to my private-pay private practice, they are deciding to see me or one of my associates. They are deciding for themselves.

For me to not share with others what I’ve learned would not only stall my progress but others as well. When I started working on the question of “How to become a consultant?” it took me into teaching, learning, and then communicating those answers.

That’s what today’s podcast is about!
