Consulting Services

Collaborators, Not Clients

Roshan named his practice Bliss Collaborations because collaboration – literally, “co-laboring” or “working together” – is at the center of his philosophy as a consultant.

As epitomized in this well-known quote from the world of social movements, Roshan isn’t looking to “waste your time” by merely offering help, but rather he seeks to work together with people and organizations whose goals, values, and vision for the future are bound up with his own. That’s why he thinks in terms of having “Collaborators” rather than “Clients.”

Below are some of the ways Roshan most often engages with Collaborators, but there are many other ways we can work together. You can schedule a free 30 minute consultation with Roshan to talk about how you’d like to collaborate by clicking here.

If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.

I attended a Jefferson County student-administration forum and was very impressed with the moderator Roshan Bliss. There was a very diverse group of panelists with opposing views. Roshan did a great job of keeping the discussion moving and sticking to the schedule, making sure that all participants got equal time, and also thinking on his feet with some good questions to stimulate discussion.
