"It's the map I wish I had starting out" -C.N.
"This book gave me a greater feeling about pharmacy. I love what I do but the business is very challenging. I'm always looking for new avenues" -S.D.
"I like how it is laid out, simple and concise - almost as if it were a workbook. I feel as educated as pharmacists we are, we sometimes "skip" the basics - at least I do. Covering LLC vs Corp, ROI and certifications, and marketing on a minuscule budget are all areas that I found myself asking TONS of questions about. These were covered with ease, detail, and flawlessness in the book" -N.R.
"I think this is a great resource for individuals looking to get started in this space. I really like (Blair's) style of writing in short sections that is easy to read, follow and pick-up where you left off. Reminds me of Seth Godin's style!" -T.U.

Let this book inspire you, as it did me. The book is small, easy-to-read, yet chock full of important information. The author does a great job explaining how to start providing medication-therapy-management (MTM) services as an independent pharmacist consultant, and goes step-by-step explaining the different services you could provide a pharmacy, doctor's office, or accountable care organization. She gives solid tips and uses her experience to prevent us newbies from making rookie mistakes.
In addition to the explanation of how to provide these services, the author goes into depth about how to market yourself as a consultant, and how to use social media to your advantage. I think pharmacists (including myself) may excel in providing clinical services, but feel shy and nervous when it comes to promoting themselves.
But lets's be real--can you imagine working behind the counter forever? Some people do, and some people retire with big name chains or big box stores. Sorry, I graduated in 2015, and the thought of retiring 30+ years working as a pharmacy manager makes me want to run away from home, set up a hot dog cart in Bermuda, and pharmacy be damned. And I love pharmacy, patients, helping people, etc.
So let this short, informative, easy-to-read book inspire you like it did me. I guarantee you won't be disappointed in the purchase. Since I've bought the book, I've already started applying the knowledge in order to start my own consulting business.
Blair's style is both inspirational and conversational, and she sounds generally happy to help others follow her path to professional and financial independence. With a wealth of possible pharmacist-driven services including MTM, Blair has ideas for people with a variety of interests. For example, I am looking forward to learning more about pharmacogenomics, the study of how differences in genetics affect medication absorption and metabolism in different patients.
How To Build A Pharmacy Consulting Business is a must-read for anyone who has considered starting their own pharmacy consulting business but doesn't feel he/she has the knowledge or expertise to do so. By the end of the book, you'll be ready to contact your first clients and take control of your career.
