Inspired by Robert Kiyosaki’s best-selling work Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I decided to take a plunge into the entrepreneurial world with Project Management Research Institute. Over a decade old, the venture today enjoys a clientele of several big names in the industry as well as small and medium organizations. In the process, I became a goal-achieving self-employed individual. Through it all, Kiyosaki’s words kept reaching out to me; according to him, true business is something which will work for you even when you sleep. From that perspective, there was a wide gap between being an entrepreneur and an independent consultant.
What next? While consulting is a cash cow, men and women in the field need ‘star’ projects’ that will make them shine and lead in the highly competitive industry. Like every other successful consultant, I too traveled, met and worked with several thousand professionals worldwide. That pool is a great strategic advantage for any successful consultant and coach – a resource which cannot be replicated easily. For example, consider that most of my clients are extremely agile teams in the small and medium segment who are eager to partner with organizations who can outsource projects to them. Another well-established coach in Agile development in Singapore works with large companies who are on the lookout for outsource partners. In this scenario, we both have an opportunity to add value to our existing client pool. This window exists with almost every independent consultant/coach.
If we can guide our trusted client circles across the globe to connect and work together to meet their individual business goals, that will become a strategic advantage for them to define, design, develop and deploy business solutions faster and cheaper than their competition. And, we will elevate ourselves from the ‘self-employed’ segment to the ‘entrepreneurial category’. That is better value generation for all the stakeholders involved, including us. I invite you to associate with Agilectics to reach that goal. Click here
