Today’s episode of Climb In Consulting is a little different and I’m excited to see what you think about it!

Instead of interviewing a leader from the Consulting industry I answer a question that I’ve had A LOT since making the move in to Independent Consulting – ‘Nick, how do I become an Independent Consultant?’

In this episode I cover some of the specific questions that I’ve been asked by friends and colleagues along with some of the key areas that you need to know about and consider. This includes the myths that often stop people becoming an independent, how to set your day rate, how to find roles and some of my top tips that I’ve learnt over the last 2 years doing it.

I hope you find this episode useful and I’d really value your feedback on whether you like this format and whether it’s useful content. Happy to do more of these if it is. Happy to stick with interviews if it’s not.
