As an independent consultant, I have my own tales of woe and glory that I could talk about regularly. However, I can talk about myself any time I want to. I thought it might be more beneficial if I talked about others, or let them talk about themselves. Each interview will have the same 5 questions, and the responder can answer them any way they see fit. Every once in awhile I might add a little something beforehand, if I have anything, but overall, it will be their words.

The very first person in this new interview series is Jim Yarsinsky of Expeditive. I've known Jim for over six years, and he booked one of my first consulting assignments, a training session for a hospital system in New Jersey, and continues coming through for me with new contracts every once in awhile. Below are the questions, and Jim's answers:

1. What is Expeditive?

Expeditive is an interim revenue cycle staffing firm.

2. What made you decide to go into this business?

Saw a need within the industry for professional and seasoned folks to work on short-term assignments/projects.

3. What types of challenges have you had along the way?

Filling the growing number of job orders.

4. Have the positives outweighed the negatives, and if so, how?

Absolutely. I love what I am doing. As you know, I spent years on the road as an independent revenue cycle consultant. This venture allows me to go home every night and affords me more time with my family.

5. What would you recommend for anyone looking to go into business for themselves?

Be passionate about it. Do not go into half hearted and be well capitalized.
