The life of a consultant can be a good one. It can also be scary.
It’s scary when things are slow and you’re wondering where your next client will come from. Sometimes you can get clients fairly quickly; other times it feels like you’re never going to get another client at all.
Almost all of us have been there. It doesn’t have anything to do with whether you’re good at what you do or not. Sometimes it’s timing; sometimes it’s the market. It is what it is.
