Sometimes your marketing and sales efforts, while good intentioned, fall short not because lack of good ideas, but because of lack of implementation. The self-employed professional is a master at procrastination when they want to be.
Note from Pat: Consultants benefit from mentors - and so do business owners. Think about it. How would your own performance benefit in the short and long-term with the right mentor OR even an advisory board that includes people with expertise in key areas like legal, finance, operations, sales/marketing etc.?
