Second Breaks Unretirement Series: Michael Zipursky

This episode is part of the special series on Un-Retirement.

ABOUT MY GUEST:

Michael Zipursky is the CEO and co-founder of Consulting Success. He’s kinda like a consultant for consultants.

He helps business people run their businesses more efficiently and effectively. But more importantly, he specializes in helping people transition into a successful consultancy (or simply find more success as a consultant) by leveraging and marketing their expertise in an enormously crowded field.

He is the author of five books, including The Consulting Success System: How to Become a Successful Consultant and The Masters of Consulting Interviews. Michael also hosts the podcast The Consulting Success Podcast.

Clearly, he is the person to talk about building a consulting practice!

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU’LL LEARN:

  • What a consultant is, how it’s different from a coach or from a contractor
  • What makes for a successful consultant
  • Why true expertise is critical to a successful consultancy practice
  • The 6 principles for running a successful practice
  • Why asking the quality and meaningful questions is super important (and what are the “right” questions)
