So you've gone through your seven steps...now what?
What will you do now since you got your seven steps down? Starting a company is one of the hardest things you can do. Being an entrepreneur or even a full-time freelancer is a lot of work. It often means putting in as many, if not more, hours than a 9 - 5. Your hands will be in so many projects that you won't realize the small things you need.
There's nothing wrong with asking for help. It's encouraged to speak with a professional when you're starting a company. You'll need as many reinforcements as possible to ensure your company is running smoothly and efficiently.
Prepare yourself by finding out what your company is missing. Before hiring a consultant, search through your business' analytics to find out what you need. After you've compiled this information, seek out the right professional for you.
Find out if the consultant is experienced by asking for references or a list of projects. You will understand how they work, who they’ve worked with, and the success rate they have. Your consultant should be reasonable with time and realistic with deadlines. Lastly, does this consultant have a price range and campaign structure that’s fitting for you? Communication is important. Learn what your consultant does so you can confidently take over.
