A simple search for ‘business consulting’ brings in more than four million hits so I guess there’s no shortage of these companies vying for your business.
The thing is, these days anyone can become a consultant. It’s a booming business right now because technology has made it very easy to get into this line of work and people wanting a home based small business can easily start an online business consulting in an area in which they’ve gained a certain degree of expertise. Bear in mind, however, that there are good business consulting firms and bad business consulting firms. The difference between the two usually translates to a drive for excellence and a passion to perform perfectly for the client.

Wayne Gretzsky, arguably the best hockey player of all time, got a great piece of advice from his father while growing up as a child, honing his hockey skills into greatness. His father told him to, “go where the puck is going, not where it’s been!” The same can be said about your business, especially if it’s an Internet enterprise. Things are changing so quickly in this arena that you need to constantly adjust just to stay ahead of the curve.
William Faulkner said it another way. “Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
