I am looking to become a self-employed business consultant, who takes a commission solely on the profit I make the client. I am looking to get experience in this field by means of offering my services for free for the first couple of businesses I work with. My services are basically compprised of me analyzing the business and proposing business ideas to he owner of the business for growth. Do you think a small business owner would be willing to have a free "idea-man" working with them? fyi, I have an MBA. ANY input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joseph Carre.
