Since business blogs help improve your Web traffic, it’s worth blogging just for that. More targeted content = better search rankings = more people at your blog = more chances they will buy or contract your services.
If you are a workaholic and don’t like what you are doing – you are doomed to ulcers, early death and perhaps a sad family. Don’t work at home if you’re not qualified. OR, get qualified on someone else’s time and then when you’ve got the drive, determination and discipline – stay home and get more done, more happily.
As a business consultant, you need to have an online presence. You don’t need a full-blown website. You just need a squeeze page or something that captures leads. That is a place people can go to that tells them what you do and for them to register their interest in what it is that you offer. You can supplement this with a profile on a social media site.

Think about what is important to the format. Some newsletters use italics or underlined words to emphasize the importance. And some of these over-use these methods. Always let good taste dictate the layout and style of your publication.
These are only a few of the things to look for when searching for a business consultant. You have to use your own gut instinct and common sense. If the deal being offered seems a little too good to be true then you may not be dealing with someone reputable. Anyone who has skill will snot sell themselves short.
