Starting a business

Although I have consulted for the past year (and for over half of my career), I am now “formally” starting a consulting practice. Yes, I’m jumping in with both feet. My first focus will be on helping organizations gain exemplary performing and highly engaged people. Over the coming weeks, I will be going through all the activities and challenges that come with starting a business. I want to take you on my journey and let you know all I am going through.

More importantly, I want to get your thoughts and suggestions. I guess you can say I am croudsourcing my consulting practice because what you contribute will help me make many decisions. As the days go on, I will be sharing what I am doing and asking for your advice. Please take a second to respond in the comments section, vote on a pole, or even contact me directly. My email address is With your help, I am sure this will go well.

Tomorrow, I will have a statement about the specific area of focus for my business and possible names. I will need your advice on the naming thing. I have thought about that for a while and have asked some trusted colleagues for their input but nothing is sticking. It’s amazing how hard it is to come up with a name.

Also, let me know what you think of the new look for my blog. Thank you for tuning in. I hope to hear from you soon!


One thought on “Starting a business

  1. Mike, congratulations on beginning your own business. I have always felt you were exceptionally uniquely skilled to be a effective consultant. I will try and think of some names for the company, however, you are correct, it is very difficult as the name is one of the most important aspects of a new business, since it is a first impression for potential clients. If you need anything, please do not hesitate to ask and congratulations again. Look forward to reading your blog and hearing about the journey.
