    #115 - Pros and Cons Of Being An Hourly Consultant

    #115 - Pros and Cons Of Being An Hourly Consultant

    OK, this episode is a little bit controversial. 

    A LOT of consultants absolutely hate the hourly model and urge anyone to think hard before they take it.

    Most consultants hate the hourly model. They don't like it, because it's purely based on how much you work and nothing else. Some consultants see this as a disadvantage, but there are also some positive sides to working with an hourly model that pays off in the end.

    In this episode we will cover: 
    What it means to be an hourly consultant - 1:09
    Reason 1 - 2:48
    Reason 2 - 5:38
    Reason 3 - 6:41
    The Downside - 9:09

    We're going to discuss possible downsides as well as upsides. 

    We'll also talk about why you might want to use an hourly model even if you don't think it's for you. So let's get started!

    #114 - Consulting Lifestyle Podcast Season 3

    Welcome to Consulting Lifestyle. I'm honored and happy to restart the show.

    The past 10 months have been difficult for me to create quality content, but I'm excited about getting back into the swing of things. Work and family have to come first, so I need some time to really get back into my groove.

    I'm also very excited to be able to start focusing on the B2B side of consulting again, which will make this show a lot more interesting for you.

    Here's what you can expect from this podcast: 
    interviews with interesting people, solo episodes where I talk about my own experiences in consulting, and more! 

    So if you're discovering this right now, know that Consulting Lifestyle is really about that Lifestyle and Consulting. You'll hear more about that in the coming weeks!
