How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Advising is different than consulting. Expect advice to teach you how to think critically, learn how to answer questions that come up in the future, and build your experience. Consultants often take with them their expertise when they go. An advisor is a coach who will help you build your own skills that you keep for a lifetime.
