Amy Rasdal, Founder of Billable at the Beach®
I have been an independent consultant for 15 years. I have learned to be successful through experience and hard work.
My primary consulting practice is focused on medical devices and large internet projects www.rasdal.com. Every time I send out an email blast promoting my business I get back several people who are interested in learning more about being an independent consultant. So I launched Billable at the Beach® to give people a jump start in independent consulting.
