Episode 241: Evolving a Consulting Business Over Time—with Hoda Shawky
Building a consulting business—especially one that makes an impact—does not happen by chance. You have to make and implement decisions that enable you to get work and get to do the work you were meant to do.
In this Craft of Consulting Podcast episode, I interview Hoda Shawky who reflects on the decisions she's made over the 3 years she's been a consultant and shares insights about what worked and what she did to get and keep her business and life on track.
In this episode, we talk about:
Explaining what drew her to consulting and how she took the leap
Being intentional about picking engagements that made you happy doing the work
Aligning the business with your values
Being more deliberate with the use of your time
Shifting work towards being community-centered and centering community voice
