Consulting

Based on reader suggestions, I’m now offering consultation sessions on a limited basis in two areas: blogging and data science.

Over the past three years I’ve developed extensive experience in both of these areas and I often receive emails from readers with questions regarding how to get started with blogging or how to become a data scientist. 

Through a consultation session, I can better answer your specific questions in a more in-depth and actionable manner.

Blogging

I have been blogging for nearly three years now. During this time period, I’ve been able to grow this site to 120,000+ monthly page views and I typically earn between $3,000 – $3,500 each month through various income sources.

If you’re interested in starting a blog or simply growing an existing blog, a consultation session would be incredibly valuable. I can share the exact strategies I have used to grow my own blog as well as share exactly how I monetize it. In addition, I can answer any specific questions you may have about SEO, social media, advertising, affiliate links, site design, email newsletters, etc. 

My main goal with a blogging consultation session is to help you skip months or even years ahead with your blog by sharing pitfalls to avoid, strategies to pursue, and tactics to use.

Data Science

I have been a data scientist in my day job for a little over three years now. I have shared before that landing a day job as a data scientist with a starting salary of $80k was the number one factor that allowed me to save $100k by 24.

I strongly believe that data science is one of the best fields to be in both now and in the future. It is a field that is expected to grow tremendously over the coming decades and there’s a massive demand for talented data scientists in nearly every city in the U.S. From my own experience, I know that this type of job offers excellent work-life balance as well as an above-average salary. 

If you’re interested in becoming a data scientist, a consultation session could be highly beneficial. I can share with you the exact steps I took to become a data scientist, what exactly I do in my day job on a daily basis, along with what skills you should learn, how you should craft your resume to land an interview, how to create a LinkedIn profile that catches the eye of recruiters, and what interview questions you should prepare for.

In addition, at the end of a data science consultation session I will email you the exact three resumes that have landed me three different data science interviews.

Getting the Most Out of a Consultation

To get the most out of a consultation, I encourage you to come prepared with specific questions. 

Instead of asking,

“So, how do I become a data scientist?”

you would get more value out of our conversation if you asked,

“What specific programming languages should I learn / courses should I take / books should I read / interview questions should I study?”

In addition, it would be helpful if you were able to provide me with any experience you have in either blogging or data science, so we could skip the basics if need be and jump into more in-depth, advanced topics.

Packages

I offer two consultation packages:

Standard Consultation: 1 hour – $80

Advanced Consultation: 1 hour 30 minutes – $100
