Episode 177: Contingencies and Choices for Consulting “What Ifs”—with Jamie Green
Having a thriving consulting business requires you to prepare for and respond to a slew of "what ifs" that could impact your livelihood and life.
In this Craft of Consulting podcast episode, I interview Jamie Green who shares how to create contingency plans and make choices about those "what ifs" so you can enjoy being a consultant and having the good life that comes with it.
Jamie Green didn’t let all the uncertainties and realities of her life get in the way of being a consultant and doing it her way. In this episode, we talk about:
Recognizing how much fits under the consulting umbrella
Being honest about your finances so you can plan and make good choices
Embracing the fear of financial uncertainties when you’re the sole or primary source of income
Consulting when you are a “certain age,” including when you are menopausal
Managing your energy levels when you have a chronic condition
Using the freedom and flexibility of consulting to your advantage
Being fully human in your work
Staying in control of your schedule and availability
Planning for economic fluctuations
Having people on your business “board of advisors” so you can get the mix of insights and help you need
Being the boss you always wanted
