22: A Behind The Scenes Look At a Consulting Business with Chiquita Jones

Behind The Scenes Look At a Consulting Business

Do you feel aligned with where your business is at right now, or do things need to change to get it where you want it?

Today we are lucky enough to be joined by my dear friend, Chiquita Jones. She is going to walk us through her journey and how she has landed in a place where she feels really aligned with how she works with her clients.

She’s always striving to do more in her business and is not someone who is going to settle. I love that about her, and I know you will too!

We’re going to talk about pivoting in your business, what consulting is like, and why you’re more of an expert than you realize.

 

 

On Today’s Show You’ll Learn: 

 

  • What it’s like to pivot from being an OBM to consulting 
  • How adding value might look different than you expect
  • What a day in a consulting business looks like 
  • The value of bringing your experience 
  • How to draw a line between searching for the next thing and shiny object syndrome 
  • The power of developing who you are personally 
  • How to learn and grow from any experience
  • The importance of making friends and connections rather than seeing people as competition 

 

I hope that you enjoyed this conversation with Chiquita as much as I did. She is such a great example of following your heart to create a business that you really love rather than settling for less.
