Early on, Deirdre Baggot wasn’t sure that she would do well when it came to consulting because she didn’t have any experience in the field. Fortunately, the CEO that she had made the move with believed in her abilities and referred many clients to her. It only took about 3 months for her to start turning a profit in her business. She accredits a lot of her success to having a great team backing her and a lot of knowledge on the subject.
She believes that experience and knowledge is the best way to attract and keep clients. It’s not enough to just know a lot of theory about a subject, you have to have practiced it in real life in order to know how things actually work. The mentors that she has had over the years have also helped inspire her and teach her what she needs to know.
