I am currently exploring my options for freelance work. I know many of you out there have made the leap from regular employee to consultant. I’m interested in any words of wisdom you might have. Do you have any favorite resources or books? Are there any lessons learned or great tips for the transition?
I have found a few resources already:
- Harold Jarche’s So You Want to Be an eLearning Consultant? is a great overview.
- I just bought Consulting Basics after reading Bill Brandon’s review. (It arrived today, so I haven’t started reading it yet, but it looks good.)
Please pardon the following blatant self-promotion.
My current contract is scheduled to complete at the end of July, so I am looking for projects starting in August. I have several leads right now, but if you have or know of any projects starting in August or later, I’d appreciate you keeping me in mind.
Update 12/4/2011: Now that I have made the leap, I’ve posted a few tips for making the transition to freelance.
