I seem to get more emails asking about how to become a self-employed consultant than I do about any other thing I actually blog about.
I’ve not written that much recently so thought I would put up a quick post with some advice around this subject.

(Please note, that is not a paid link, just a graphic I’m not getting paid for!)
The above book costs virtually nothing as a kindle download and covers all the things you need to know to get started as a consultant, whether this is as a Business Intelligence expert or any other IT discipline.
I received this book as a gift, about a decade too late for me, but it would have been a life saver (ok, money saver!) back when I was starting out. It’s packed with practical advice on everything from finding contracts to the correct mind set to make the most of it.
