“You can begin to call yourself a consultant when you have elevated yourself to be able to persuade and advise the client professionally.
“To be a consultant, you must also be a professional. Whether you’re a sales professional or a project manager, simply being a designer with little understanding of business along with limited training or experience in sales and marketing won’t qualify you as a consultant. Don’t label yourself as a consultant because you believe it will give you more prestige and respect. They are indeed different from one another.”

Well said. Titles can matter to those who hire you, but you’ve got to make sure you walk the walk.
