What is the difference between a “consultant” and an “advisor”?
Answered 2 years ago
A consultant does the work; an advisor suggests tasks for the client to complete. For example, an advisor may recommend the client develop a one-pager to deliver to potential investors. The advisor will provide examples of one-pagers and provide feedback on the drafts of the one-pager. The advisor will not write the one-pager for the client.
