Most everyone dreams of being their own boss one day. In the security world you very much have that option available to you. Problem is though to be a full time consultant you realistically need a regular client base. If not then you are back to the old consultant adage “feast or famine”. While that may be alright for a single person if you have kids and a house you may not be willing to take the plunge. Can’t say I blame you really as it can be a very daunting step to take.
Have any of you taken the plunge and gone from a good job to the volatile world of the consultant? The money can be very good as a consultant, but then again you have a lot more expenses to pay for as well. I have had some people blink twice when I give them my per diem. Heh, after I explain to them the expenses I have to pay for my per diem does not seem so big suddenly. Any of guys got some stories to share?
