What is microconsulting?
Life is often full of tough choices, and the way we all confront them is probably similar. Options are weighed, decisions are made, and then fingers are crossed to make sure we didn’t screw up too much.
While this approach is often seen as the best possible way to confront the onslaught of daily choices we need to make, everyday life is becoming more and more complex. From neverending technological innovations to challenging job markets and evolving family dynamics, it may seem that our approach to decision-making may need some reassessment.
Since we live in an age of hyperconnectivity, data driven business moves, and hacks for just about anything, why can’t we adapt all this to improve our own personal decision-making? This could be the perfect time to adapt a new business concept - called microconsulting - and bring it into everyday life for people.
Until now, microconsulting services have typically been reserved for businesses in need of a freelance consultant for a very specific scope of work. For example, maybe a company wants to expand to Latvia and decides to hire a local Latvian lawyer to help ease the legal process. Or maybe an athleisure brand wants to start incorporating footwear into their product offering - they could hire a footwear consultant to help them determine what the best approach could be.
Businesses shouldn’t be the only ones to reap the benefits of microconsulting services, though. After all, individuals face countless dilemmas throughout their lives and could very well use some expert guidance, whether it’s for assistance with personal matters, professional help, career advice, or even tips for hobbies.
This is exactly what Pruuf strives to provide through its lineup of microconsulting advisors. Individuals from all walks of life with varying careers and personal experiences make themselves available for anyone to request a phone appointment with.
