Great advice on building brand in consulting world

Author, did a great job of identifying the core principles of consulting, but more importantly he provided valuable advice on what not to get caught up on. Some of his advice is based on him having a very strong brand that delivers new opportunities which not everyone will have to start out with in very competitive markets. Good book over all.

Annoying and a hard listen ... not much value

I did pull a couple things out of this book but overall Alan comes off as a very arrogant and difficult person to listen to. I forced myself to listen to the entire book as he alleges so much expertise in this field. That said, I feel like this book was his opportunity to brag about all of his past projects.

I buy many audiobooks and after I listen to them, I often I feel like I could have a beer with the writer because they provided thoughtful insight; not Allen. I wouldn't even invite him to my Christmas party.

He is very in-your-face and quotes himself often in the book after some of his statements; he does not need to do that- it's his book!

Pass this book - find another one for a better listen.

Essential reading for consultants

Would you consider the audio edition of Million Dollar Consulting to be better than the print version?

Alan has amazing knowledge on how to build a great consulting business and a great life. I learn every time I am exposed to him and his writing.

So great to have two of his books in audio format. I can get a quick hit and reminder about consulting essentials whenever I have a few minutes to spare.

Alan - Please keep the audio books coming!

Excellent guide to consulting

I loved every minute of this audio, and the highest compliment I can pay to scott pollak is that I felt as though I was listening to the author himself teaching passionately about the subject
