Resources To Bring In Cash While You Start Your New HR Consulting Business

Here are some ways to bring in extra money while you get your new consultancy off the ground:

  • Consulting (after hours, on days off, or by phone/email). You could register yourself on consulting project platforms such as Clarity FM, Expert360, PWC’s Talent Exchange, One Circle HR, and more.
  • Get a remote job/flex job after hours. See FlexJobs. Angel Co, and the usual job vacancies websites.
  • Create information products such as templates, How To guides, Ebooks, and so on.
  • Write a book. There are plenty of examples of HR professionals who have written books to either demonstrate their thought leadership, generate client work, produce revenue, or combinations of these. Alan Collins and Ben Whitter are good examples to follow.
  • Provide training or coaching. Again this can be after hours, on days off, or by phone/email.
  • Lecture in HR-related topics after hours at colleges and universities. It’s an excellent way to crystallize your ideas whilst also generating a little extra revenue. I did this a few times – it’s good fun.
  • Develop and sell online training courses. This is an area that will continue to grow strongly over the next few years.
  • Write HR-related content for websites. Check the remote work sites I listed above or look at People Per Hour and ProBlogger.
