Assisting Those Starting and Growing Independent Consultanting

People in all walks of life have turned an expertise, a hobby, a special interest or skill into a lucrative and rewarding enterprise. The number of consultants in a wide variety of areas has mushroomed in recent years, making independent consulting one of the fastest-growing service businesses in the country.

Helping consultants start-up, Sam has held interactive seminars at national society meetings, taught classes at UC Berkeley Extension, and coached starting consultancies. He has helped many to become self-employed and self-empowered professionals. Feedback from those helped has been highly enthusiastic!
