They’re usually happy to chat for free just to demonstrate how much value they can add. For my client, I spent a short time automating a process that saved them 2 man days per month forever: £200 one-off cost vs £5k per year savings. Plus their reporting file is now slick and easy to use, giving them access to extensive insights they should’ve had for years.
I specialise in financial modelling, data analytics, forecasting & automation – in fact anything in a spreadsheet. This forces me to think through problems thoroughly and in ways that others might not; my major client already pays all my bills so I’m not looking for major income but I’d like to be part of something interesting, and a go-to guy for small businesses locally when they’re thinking of a new project. Or maybe you have a broken spreadsheet and don’t know where to start?
I might even fix it for free cos I’m nice like that.
