Book: The Trusted Advisor #consulting101

The problem with this is that many contracts sell on qualifications. They often have requirements for education and certifications. I’m not sure how he would get around those. I think no matter how late getting a bachelors is the right thing to do. Just have him do an online one in the background. Should be a piece of pie if he’s bright.
