I wish I had a dollar for every time I had an unemployed executive tell me they were a consultant. I could retire rich. You of course know what a consultant does: "Steals your watch and tells you what time it is." Ok, ok, don't send me any nasty emails. I am being a little harsh and direct. Consultants play a valuable role in our business community. But caution. if you are an executive looking for a new job, then positioning yourself as a consultant may do more harm than good. My latest video has some insights on how to effectively establish a "consulting" practice to help drive your search. What is your opinion? And do you have any good stories to share about consultants?
