Should I Pay Someone to Help Me?
There is always a point in the world of entrepreneurship where you ask yourself, ,“Should I hire a consultant?” And, as with most things in life, the answer is, “It depends.”
I often say, “Some lessons are Taught and some of Bought,” and I bought many lessons in my 25 years of being a entrepreneur. And trust me when I say Bought Wisdom is Better Than Taught Wisdom!
Whether you’re starting a new company or growing an existing business, hiring the right consultant can be a cost-effective way for your small business to leverage specialized knowledge. Conversely, hiring the wrong consultant can cost you more than money—it can cost you a lot of wasted time and energy.
So, the challenge for a small business owner is to understand the role of a consultant in their business, and to learn how and when it is cost-effective to hire one.
It you’re thinking about starting a small business or non-profit give me a call.
