I'm here to help coders become consultants. My services are for you if:
- You need expertise and support in making the coder to consultant transition.
- You feel almost ready to start charging clients for advice or strategy but need support in making that leap.
- You've landed a great consulting gig and want to make your marketing repeatable so you land future great consulting gigs.
- You're a consultant wanting to self-publish your first book and would like guidance about doing that.
- You're a generalist, you're doing fine, but you have a hunger for something more...
If instead you need help with pricing, sales, financial management, or people management, check out the list of world-class resources listed on my Referrals page: https://philipmorganconsulting.com/referrals-to-other-experts/
Again, my focus is helping coders become consultants. This is a business transformation, and it is a personal transformation from competence to self-made expertise.
My services are therefore not a general purpose multi-tool useful for almost anything. Instead, they are a small set of special-purpose tools that are invaluable in the context of the coder -> consultant or competence -> self-made expertise transitions, and much less valuable outside that context.
Here's how this all fits together:

If my services seem relevant for you, then the next step is to understand which service is ideal for your specific need(s).
In the table below, you'll see that I focus on 4 business goals you might have and offer 3 kinds of services (and several DIY products) to help accelerate your progress towards those goals. So if you identify the column that matches your goal(s), and the row with a suitable type of support, then the intersection of that column and row will identify the best-fit service for you.
