Starting a Consulting Business

Is this something that folks have done or thought about. Esp. for folks that have some kind of regulatory knowledge.

Re: Starting a Consulting Business

I have thought about it many times and still do. I could do it and have been asked already but I don't want to travel and be away from home for days or weeks at a time. I did that for over 6 years already and I want to travel for fun from now on.

If you like travel and can sell yourself and are willing to take the time and effort to make a name for yourself by teaching seminars, going to industry meetings and making contacts you can do well at consulting. I have many friends and former co-workers that are doing this now. The key for them was to carve out a unique nich that no one else was doing. Specialize in small companies or in areas that most don't want to do. It works for them in a crowded market.

I've done some consulting, but I'm not that regular.
