Yesterday I published my first article on Linkedin, entitled "5 things I learned setting up my own consultancy business". You can view the full article here https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/5-things-i-learned-setting-up-my-own-consultancy-jamie-mcdonald?trk=pulse_spock-articles
To my surprise it received a great response, so I will try to make it a regular thing, alongside posting here.
The 5 learnings I highlight in the article were as follows:-
2. Get a client, any client!
3. Expect the unexpected and be prepared for rejection.
4. Websites, business cards and fancy logos can wait.
5. Keep costs to an absolute minimum.
In reality I could have probably written a list of 100 things I learned along the way, so others who have gone through the same process could produce a very different top 5, but these were the items that really stuck out for me.
Leave me a comment below or on linkedin if you have any thoughts on the article.
