Working as a solo communications professional has its challenges, like any other career. Sometimes, the challenge is to help potential customers understand that just because your consultancy is run by one person, it doesn't mean that their needs won't be met.
In my case, I pull together a team that suits the needs of the client's project. The process is the same as when I was an advertising account executive or directing non-profit communications - determine the needs of the project and assemble the appropriate team. I have web developers, printers, writers and graphic designers within my network to provide the same experience and solid results for my clients.
It looks like I'm not alone in my solo consulting world. Kellye Crane of Solo PR Pro points to a new study by MBO Partners on the State of Independence in America, which finds that the solo work force is here to stay and is growing each year. Read her full recap here.
Solo consultants are often seasoned, savvy professionals who are more than prepared to partner with you to achieve your business goals.
