    Hi,

    I am sure there are many professional, successful and newly started small business consultants on this forum.

    I am compiling a study on the issues faced by business consultants. What are your biggest challenges etc?

    I would be grateful if any consultants who are reading this post, could reply and state the types of problems and challenges.

    This may even help others on this forum.

    Thanks for your time.

    1. Reputation is key concern, logically client will go for a more establish consulting firm.
    2. Capability. Client prefer 1 stop solution provider, e.g. they want a shopping portal, the overhead involve is included programmer, designer, project manager, seo and marketer. Most of Small bsuiness consulting firm only offer partial solution.
    3. Man power resource. Due to manpower issue, they always have volume issue, they can take as much project as they can.

    Hi,
    The main reason in my point of view is competition in market. There are lots of consultants available on internet that may be the cause of failure for one consultant. It means the chances of risk are high in such kind of a business.
