Take a brief quiz to see if you've got what it takes.


Start the Journey
It takes time and commitment to start your own consulting practice. First, start writing down your thoughts--every single morning, 3 long hand pages. These "Morning Pages" are the brain child of Julia Cameron, a famous author, award-winning poet, and filmmaker. These morning pages will help you gather your thoughts and get you started. Try it: every day.
