This short book should be of interest to many people who would like to set themselves up as a self-employed Contracting Consultant and it is not focused on any particular area of work. The consultancy topics discussed are relevant to a fairly wide range of specialist areas such as engineering, tuition, information technology and manufacturing, but the central theme of this book is around Technical and Management Consulting. However this book is not suitable for some types of consulting. Whilst this book obviously cannot deal with a person’s ‘skills of the trade’ so as to speak, the essential consultancy concepts are fairly commonplace, but they’re not universal. This book is not a publication that deals with ‘how to make a profit’, instead, it’s been written to motivate the reader to consider starting a potentially profitable business as a self-employed Consultant who provides vital information to their clients in the topics and applications in which they specialise.
This is a United Kingdom publication so the various legal formalities touched upon in the book will be UK specific, although many other countries have similar rules and regulations. Nevertheless, it’s anticipated that the wider contents of the book have a great deal of international relevance and this publication should therefore be of interest to readers elsewhere. If approached correctly, consultancy can be a very exciting and profitable business.

Funding your business with Kickstarter Crowdfunding is an all new way to fund your business, but if you aren’t familiar with how it works there are a few things you need to know. The first is a Kickstarter campaign can’t be used to fund an entire business. It’s there to fund projects, so you need to learn how to develop your business through a series of projects. Hence, just like the old potato chip commercial, one Kickstarter is not going to be enough. Of course, I’ve included interviews with two people in the know on how to run a Kickstarter – Hanson Grant and Brandon Kelly. And, by-the-way I saved the best part for last. eBay 2016 is now available as a paperback or audio book. Order your copy today, and start building your eBay business – one step at a time.
