Businesses certainly understand what consultants are. In 1997 U.S. businesses spent just over $12 billion on consulting.
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.
But what separates a good consultant from a bad consultant is a passion and drive for excellence. And--oh yes--a good consultant should be knowledgeable about the subject he or she is consulting in. That does make a difference.
According to Entrepreneur.com these are the top 10 reasons to hire a consultant:
A consultant may be hired because of his or her expertise.
