An Image Consultant Is Not Your Regular Agony Aunt

Image consulting helps you achieve a better understanding of yourself, high levels of confidence, and more success in life, that too without having the fear of being judged, pitied or ridiculed. And here’s the final, if not most important, reason to hire an image consultant:

Cost effective.

An Image Consultant is NOT your regular agony aunt.

You can expect good advice free of cost, but helpful advice is never free. An image consultant can give you advice for quick fixes, plus work with you to achieve long-lasting results.

On the other hand, you can expect only quick fixes, provided you’ve asked someone wise enough, or who’s been in a similar situation.

So the next time you want to save some money and consult your regular agony aunt, be it someone from your family, work, even friends, think about what you’re missing out.

And relax! It isn’t expensive. It’s simple, and cost-effective. Think of it as an investment.

And the best part is there are usually free or highly-discounted consultations available for new clients. This helps you, as a paying customer, to determine if we are right for you. And this also helps us to come up with a short and cost-effective solution based on the information you provide.

Most first-time sessions lasts for about an hour. Consequent sessions might vary in duration, but it really depends on what you want. Most of my clients are happy with a maximum of three sessions over a period of time to get the most out of these services.

Hence, you can see how you can save your money, your effort, and of course, your time as well. And that’s the epitome of image consulting being cost effective.

Embrace Your Grant Consultancy’s Success With The Entrepreneur, The Manager and The Technician

I may be considered a little late to the game by some of you, but I am just now reading Michael E. Gerber’s best-selling business book The E Myth – Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It. What a goldmine of small business information that, I think, should be required reading for up and coming grant writing consultants.

You see, the reason that I say I’m late to the game is that I should have read this book before I hung out my shingle as a grant consultant – ten years ago. It certainly would have saved me some heartache and failures along the way. I couldn’t help but say “Yes! That was me!” over and over throughout the book as he talks about The Entrepreneur, The Manager and The Technician and the need for all three in a small business. And that’s what you become when you begin your own consultancy – a small business. So wouldn’t it make sense to not only engage your Technician side (the practical in getting grants written) but the Entrepreneur and the Manager sides as well?

Let me explain. When I first began my consulting business, all I concentrated on was writing the best grant application that I possibly could. My business flourished as word of mouth spread about my winning grant record. However, I drove myself crazy with multiple clients, multiple deadlines and the feeling that I was just holding my head above water. I had to even turn away potential clients because I just couldn’t keep up the pace. It wasn’t until later that I realized that I had to be in control of the business – not the business controlling me. I then learned to embrace the other two important sides of my business which included growing my business (entrepreneurship) and management of my small business. I had to be all three: The Entrepreneur, The Manager and The Technician. Once I figured this out my business exploded and I was happy and not so crazed to enjoy it!

Let me share some of Michael’s wisdom with you that I wish someone had shared with me when I was starting out: (I have put my own personal spin on his advice as it relates to grant consulting)

Think about the future of your business and not just the here and now. How many clients are ideal for now and one year and even five years from the present? Learn about processes that can take you from one step to the next.

Know that one day, to continue to grow, you will need some assistance. Proofreaders, fact checkers and your own sub-contractors are possibilities. Don’t box yourself in. Allow yourself the opportunity for growth.

Knowledge is key! Familiarize yourself with trends in your business including, but not limited to, grant writing, small business consulting, traditional marketing and social media marketing.

Remember that when your clients are buying your services, it’s not your business’s ability to give them what they want but your ability to give them what they want. Invest in yourself wisely!
If you’re even considering grant consulting as a career, you may be saying “But Betsy, I’m just having a hard enough time even thinking about getting myself started – let alone all these other things you’ve mentioned.” That’s okay because the point is to just start – eventually you’ll begin to notice a subtle difference as your business grows and you’ll now be prepared to embrace that growth.

Do you now feel more ready to begin your own grant consulting business? Download my f.r.e.e. eBook You Can Become a Grant Consultant. In it, you’ll find practical steps to get you started. Remember, with more than 1.8 million nonprofits in the U.S. alone, grant writers are in much higher demand than supply guaranteeing you consistent income if marketed correctly.

What Is An Environmental Consultant And What Does He Or She Do?

An environmental consultant wears quite a few hats. Environmental consultants, who are usually involved with most government programs and major industries, and often with relatively smaller projects, are responsible for environmental management, problem solving, analysis, and the storage of crucial data.

They often come face-to-face with very challenging and difficult to deal with environmental issues.

For example, a consultant is often involved with chemical cleanups, development issues, emissions issues, endangered species issues, industrial site rehabilitation, mining projects, recycling, storm water runoff, waste management and landfills, and wildlife habitats.

An environmental consultant is hired as an expert advisor and bills his or her clients on an hourly basis.

Historically environmental consultants were primarily involved in situations that involved undoing past damages or remediation. However, they have now become instrumentally involved with new projects.

For example, before beginning construction, the entities in charge of major residential developments will often make environmental safeguards an integral part of their management plans.

Although environmental studies are usually required by law, people in the construction industry know that just having environmental studies conducted is considered to be a wise practice. That’s because the initial environmental site analysis may find issues that could evolve into major problems for them, the local wildlife, or the future residents of the project they are working on.

Most people know that large amounts of water can destroy a foundation. But did you know that the harmless looking maidenhair fern means that there’s a lot of water around? You might not know that, but a consultant whose focus is the environment does.

Aside from potentially destroying the foundations of buildings about to be constructed, the water that the construction site is on might actually be a source that feeds the local water supply.

Without this knowledge the developer might install sewage pipes and drains that could contaminate the local water supply system. If that were to happen, aside from the potentially serious health consequences, fixing this mistake could take many millions of dollars.

Here are some additional issues an environmental consultant might find:

• Soil erosion that was or could be caused by removing vegetation

• Water-logging which would be the result of building near a wetland

• Site risks that are related to aquifers, natural drainage, and water courses

• Subsidence that could be caused by removing trees

An environmental consultant usually works during regular business hours. However, their job could involve a lot of extra time and it could include a considerable amount of site work and analysis.

Although the median salary for an environmental consultant is $50,000 per year, his or her income would actually depend on the nature of the employment contract, the nature of the work, and the nature of their specialization.
