Amy Rasdal has been an independent consultant for eight years. She has learned to be successful through experience and hard work. Her consulting revenue has tripled over the past three years. Amy’s primary consulting practice is focused on medical devices and large Internet projects. Every time she sends out an email blast promoting her business she gets back several people who are interested in learning more about being an independent consultant. So she launched Billable at the Beach™ to give people a jump-start in independent consulting.

In this Speed Workshop on how to start a successful independent consulting business, you will learn:
• The Top Five Most Critical Things to Know
• The Pros & Cons of Independent Consulting
• The Minimum Required to Get Started

Here are a few testimonials from Amy’s website:

Amy has been instrumental in organizing my go to marketing strategies to help structure my time and billable hours more productively and with focus. Her demonstrated success and experience has been a welcome relief to my daily struggles in time and resource management that has made a tremendous difference. Without Amy, I could never “Bill at the Beach”!

Her keen insight into the challenge of developing a new business coupled with her successful track record as a consultant makes her the ideal person to speak with- she is “the consultants’ consultant”. Each day I think about her guidance and advice as I grow my own practice.

I’m so pleased that Amy has decided to follow her passion with the start of her new enterprise, “Billable at the Beach”, helping others to start independent businesses of their own. Starting in early 2005, Amy and I got to know one another when I supported her efforts to start an “Independent Consulting Group” where individuals who were in business for themselves could meet and share experiences, both good and bad to help each other achieve success. Since that time Amy has become a knowledgeable and recognized spokesperson for the “independent consultant”. She clearly understands what it takes to establish a successful and satisfying independent business. Now she is ready to share her valuable insights (do’s and don’ts) with others using an organized, simple and practical approach fined tuned in recent years through her own and others experiences with both success and failure.

If you are considering starting your own independent business, Amy can give you the real answers to your questions and provide guidance and help that will put you well ahead of the game from the start. In addition to the above, Amy is a great individual who I have the privilege of having as both a professional colleague and friend.
