This book is amazing. I've been considering story consulting for a little bit, but reading this book really cemented things for me. I learned a lot about the business and what they do and rates and marketing and networking ideas that I think can really, genuinely help me.

I'm still working through some of the exercises at the end of the book, but that's fine. Even just going through a couple of them so far has really helped me clarify what it is I want to do with my business and why I'm doing it.

So many books on how to write screenplays. They seem to go around in circles and if you can't sell a screenplay, write a book about it or start a consulting biz where you help people to do the same thing. Almost sounds like a pyramid scam.
