For those who know me, I'm a big fan of David A. Fields, expert coach for consultants. He routinely shares his consulting wisdom on his informative blog and he just posted another great article introducing the concept of “micro deposits.” I won’t even try to explain what it is, as he does a great job doing that himself in a short article here.
By the way, if you are in the San Francisco area, I would highly recommend you attend his Solo Practice Accelerator workshop. I don’t get a dime for doing this, but I’m sharing it because it really helped me jump-start my own consulting business by attending this same workshop earlier this year. I am confident that it will help any independent consultant.
Now, on to other topics….
