The dictionary defines a consultant as
"an expert in a particular field who works as an advisor either to a company or to another individual."
A consultant's job is to consult.
Nothing more, nothing less. It's that simple.
There's no magic formula or secret that makes one consultant more successful than another one.
However, what separates a good consultant from a bad consultant is a passion and drive for excellence.
And--oh yeah--a good consultant should be knowledgeable about the subject he or she is consulting in.
Today it behooves everyone to consider having some type of what I call "A Side Hustle".

No rush-hour nightmares.
For anyone who has had to commute to and from a job during rush hour,
