This handbook is will explain how to build an independent consulting practice.
This guide is widely recommended because it teaches independent consulting at a professional level. It doesn't waste time with fluff.
If you're skeptical about independent consulting advice, know that I am too. This handbook is unique in that I have a lot of data. I have been a full-time independent consultant since 2017.
Who should read this?
This material applies to individuals from any professional background. I cover both introductory and advances independent consulting tactics.
Consultants of every skill level will find new, compelling material.
If you're just exploring the idea of consulting
It is important to learn and develop your growth mindset before deciding what your practice will be about.
Before starting, assess whether your specialty is suitable for a life that will give you both the free time and income you desire.
If you're an independent consultant
As an independent consultant it's important to focus on continuous improvement.
Many current independent consultants hate the work not because of the work itself, but because of the business model and their client selection process. In some cases, consultants are losing money.
This handbook will help you reset your priorities based on your desires.
It will also shed light on an independent consultant's skills so you can partner with other consultants better.
What is independent consulting?
Who is Vikrant Duggal?
I spend thousands of hours delivering clarity for people. I compile my insights into free guides (like the one your reading). People have said some nice things about me. Insights that don't make it into the guides are shared on Twitter.
I'm a venture capitalist, independent consultant, and I own and run an independent consulting training business.
