When starting your business whatever it is you should consider getting a mentor or coach. I have provided coaching services to businesses and individuals for a long time now and it really pleases me when I see them succeeding and the feeling I get from having played a small part in that just makes me want to do it again for others.
You may be highly knowledgeable about a particular area. Or you may possess a great deal of information and skill to sell but this does not mean that you will be a good business person. When I started out I know I needed help in all kinds of areas.
You can also hire Professional Business Coach for your online business.
Consultancy is just like any other business in that there are plenty of 'unknowns' and uncertainties. You will be making decisions about things that you have never had to make decisions about before. For example, how are you going to market your business, what will be your policy on discounts and concessions? How will you meet two competing and pressing deadlines? And so on. There will be competition out there that you'll have to square up to. How is your offering better than theirs? What are the benefits of doing business with you rather than them. How will you communicate these things? Can you do a pitch in front of a group of senior executives?
It can be really helpful to hire someone – a coach who can help you develop your skills with these things. Bear in mind though that mentors and coaches are not around to solve your problems or do things for you they are there to help and support you to solve your own problems.
