SMALL BUSINESS CONSULTING TIP #18:
Your first client?
Where do you go to get your first client? How can I find potential clients who could use my services?
One of the first places you should look for potential clients is your past employers, that’s right your past employers. Assuming you have left your previous employers on good terms the chances are very good that you have valuable knowledge and, not unimportantly, they already know you by name and have a good idea of your skill set. For example, I have done consulting work for the last three companies that I have worked for and made considerable revenue doing so.
