Where Independent Professionals Succeed and Large Firms Fail

I received the regular email newsletter today from RainToday.com. It contains an excellent article by Andrew Sobel (pictured) titled "Where Independent Professionals Succeed and Large Firms Fail". It expands on these key points on where independent professionals can succeed:

  1. Create personal brands by building individual market renown;
  2. Regularly develop and disseminate intellectual capital;
  3. Focus on conversations, not PowerPoint;
  4. Try to achieve success, not perfection;
  5. Have learned to eliminate non-value added activities;
  6. Take responsibility for their personal development;
  7. Organize around clients
  8. Truly act like it's their money.

This is very good advice for me, given that a lot of my work is by nature freelance or independent consulting.

How do you achieve success?
