Consulting Ethics Mike Marsoun 14 Jul 2011 21:44 EDT

Mainly for Fred. I did the inspections course and set up a business to do some consulting. Considering the following:
1. When I do make most of my money doing restoration, and many referrals are thruogh industry sources, it would be very easy to cut my own throat if, for instance, had to tell a client the granite countertop was doctored and had to be torn out. In some market areas, if you are seen as a trouble maker you are done...
2. If I get called to offer advise on a job and it is a solution I would like to work on, I can make MUCH more on the solution than on the consult. Can I ethically, as a consultant say, "yes, I have a solution and it is to hire ME to do the repair."
