Starting a consulting service is only part of your goal. To succeed, you must manage its daily operation. You must control operating costs; stay within your budget; manage assets, liabilities, and net worth; and manage taxes. This chapter covers these and other responsibilities of your consulting service's daily operations as suggested by successful business owners. It will help you understand and focus on the nuts and bolts of your business as you keep your eyes on the broader purpose of your venture: to help others as you help yourself.
