Starting a consulting practice is one of the fastest-growing career paths in today’s workplace. And for good reason—consulting offers flexibility, variety, exciting projects, the opportunity to be your own boss, and more.

If you’re considering becoming a consultant, you’re in the right place.

Salo specializes in helping professionals establish and grow their consulting careers. But we know deciding to make the jump to consulting can be stressful. That’s why we created “Is consulting right for you? The Salo Guide.”

Our guide explores the three types of questions prospective consultants have:

  • Emotional considerations: Am I consultant material?
  • Financial considerations: Can I support my lifestyle as a consultant?
  • Professional considerations: Will consulting help me reach my career goals?
