Launching a [Consulting] Business – Pulling It All Together

As you might imagine, I’ve had more than one person ask if I plan to write a book on this topic (Launching a Consulting Business). My response: probably. And, these posts are the fodder for that.

While I’m not yet done posting on this topic I thought it would be useful, for those interested, to create a sort of “Table of Contents” so that the posts can be read more easily “in order” – as an eBook.
