WIC is a collaborative community offering professional consultants and small business owners a powerful resource for building strong businesses.

"Each year hundreds of consultants and small business owners take this survey, making it a prime source of information about practical ways to strengthen and expand a business," said Kathie Sherman, WIC's president and the president of Ten Four Marketing. "This survey underscores WIC's mission to foster collaboration and help consultants and small business owners improve their skills and thrive."

The survey covers overall trends in revenue and rates, and examines best practices, including the choice of business structure, use of employees and subcontractors, billing practices, networking and marketing approaches. The WIC survey team analyzes the responses of top-earning consultants to identify best practices. The team also tracks evolving trends in consulting by comparing results to previous years.

"We have a dozen years of data that help us identify best practices that work year after year," said Jennifer Berkley Jackson, WIC's executive vice president and president of The Insight Advantage. "Consultants and small business owners nationwide tell us how valuable the survey information is to them, and how it has helped them build strong businesses for the long term."

The survey is open to consultants and small-business owners nationwide, both WIC members and non-members, until August 14. Participants will receive a full-color report detailing the survey results. Those results will be presented at a WIC members-only meeting on Thursday, September 18.
