Those Who Know, Do

And those who don’t, consult.  Or teach.  Depending on who you ask.

A lie, of sorts.  There’s a million reasons why someone would consult or teach.

  • Lack of capital to start a business
  • Lack of desire to learn the other areas of business (e.g. logistics or accounting or HR)
  • Enjoyment of the act of consulting / teaching
  • Insufficient time to run a full business
  • Using consulting / teaching to boostrap capital
  • etc.

Yet, like most things there’s a grain of truth in there.  Be careful about the consultants and teachers you find, always check their previous references and check what they’ve done.  Many aren’t able to run a business because really, they just aren’t that good.
