What you do in life is what you do for your clients. You sell them what they want and what you think they need. You sell them on your company’s expertise and professionalism, but you also make sure that they feel like they can ask for anything they want.
If you have a very successful company, making sure your clients feel like they can ask for anything they want is a real challenge. For example, there are a lot of companies that charge a lot of money for their consultants. They then get lots of consulting work from people like me, but I don’t actually charge as much as I do for consulting.
It’s the “I dont charge my clients as much as I do for consulting” thing that frustrates me the most. The problem is that this is the wrong attitude to have. The way to handle this is to not be a cheap, unethical, and unprofessional person. I know that sounds corny, but it’s really true. The more expensive the consultant, the more likely they will be to be unethical.
In the past, I’ve been a consultant for a number of companies, both public and private. I’ve also had my fair share of problems with clients. However, the way I deal with these problems is to just be honest. If I’m not honest, I’m not going to be a good consultant. Being honest is the most important thing to learn as a consultant.
If you are going to be honest, you have to know how to lie. The more money you and your company make, the easier it is for clients to find you shady, unethical, and unethical. People will be more willing to hire you if you are honest and you can easily explain how you can help them.
I think that is one reason that salespeople are often hired as consultants. They can get a job that pays well, and they can do a lot of things that consultants can’t. They can go to conferences and talk to investors and analysts behind closed doors without any questions being asked.
The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
Yes, that is true, but that doesn’t mean we should expect any particular brand of consultant to be able to do the job we hired them for.
We hired a company to help us build the game, and we hired a company to help us build the game to sell it. If we want to get people in the door with our game, we need to talk to them about it, not some random person who has no real expertise in the industry.
Yes, we hired a marketing manager, but we also hired a generalist. We hired him because he was a generalist, not because we needed him to do our marketing. We hired him because we wanted a generalist, not because we wanted a marketing manager. We hired him because he was good at the things we needed him to do, not because he had a specific expertise.
