How to Travel Less & Earn More Consulting Revenue

David A Fields

Some consultants love to travel for their consulting projects. Me, I’m not a big fan. I prefer to be with my family, sleep in my own bed, eat healthy, home-cooked meals, and work in my gym clothes. Besides, when I’m on the road, there’s less time for marketing and business development, and I can’t play old-man hockey at the local rink. But how do you build a booming, lucrative consulting practice while staying cozily ensconced in your home office?

Should You Travel to a Prospect on Your Own Dime?

David A Fields

They’re halfway across the country, so travel expenses would definitely be involved.

Why Travel and Living Abroad Prepare You for Consulting

Tom Spencer

Have you ever felt guilty about travelling extensively? Have you ever wished that the money spent traveling could somehow pay dividends? Well, I believe it can pay dividends, so you shouldn’t feel guilty about your past and future travel.

Time travel is exhausting

That’s because Twitter makes the false promise that it’s all about now. Whatever. Write what you’re doing, or feeling, or angry about.

The travel agent’s problem

Seth Godin Blog

Not just travel agents, but all agents. Information scarcity is disappearing. Forty years ago, passengers didn’t know which airline flew where and when. And forty years ago, airlines had no easy way to find out who wanted to fly somewhere. Today, of course, there’s no shortage of information or ability to connect. So paying 10% of their revenue to a human who will use a terminal instead of the passenger using a computer hardly makes sense for the airline.
