There are many tasks for which a freelance business consultant is not probably the best choice. When an SME is going through a crisis its growth goal is quite intense that needs to be addressed by a team of experts. You need an organisation that can dedicate all their resources, time, and agents to save your company. A freelancer consultant’s network is quite small as compared to an organisation. Hence, they might introduce to wrong entities and risk your business relations. It’s hard to find a potential investor through a freelancer as nobody invests believing personal recommendation. Plus an investor needs a direct mandate from business/seller to the M&A, this can make situations difficult in case you hire a freelancer. It costs a lot to hire a freelancer and it does not contribute much during processes like in deal-making, documentation, and trust-building. Deal closure may get delayed from the freelancer’s end. Also, other procedures such as to make an agreement, decide payment sharing can take longer than usual.
