    As a program evaluator, are you thinking about going out on your own? For many, this is an exciting but intimidating prospect. This workshop will reveal the simple but essential design and start-up skills needed for success. In addition to providing rich information on a handful of topics including “Do I have what it takes?”, “What’s my Niche?”, and “How do I Market?”. The session also will include valuable samples, worksheets, and insider tips. You will identify your clients, your services, and your competitive edge. Are you ready to consult? This lively webinar will help you find out and will provide what you need to tackle the tasks ahead.
