Why You Need A Proven Process For Writing Consulting Proposals
Writing effective proposals is one of the most important skills for consultants to master, one that has a direct impact on their ability to win new projects and clients. And yet, proposal writing is one of the skills that most consultants overlook as they start and grow their consulting businesses.
Your prior career experience and your reputation are important foundations for building a consulting business, but unfortunately, they aren’t enough. Unless you master the art of producing excellent proposals, you risk not winning enough business, not having enough cash flow, and ultimately feeling like you have to let go of your dream of working for yourself.
