Picked Up my First Consulting Gig!!
« on: December 10, 2017, 06:16:08 AM »
So I've been kicking lots of different ideas around and have really enjoyed this section of the forum so far.  Well a few days ago out of the blue I got a call from an old co-worker asking if I could basically drop everything and go to Mexico for procedure developments.  In the good ole' days I probably would have jumped on something like this for the right money, but with a wife, (2) kids and "normal" job this wasn't an option so I used the request as an opportunity to take on my first consulting job!

Pretty simple gig really... They send me emails with procedures and I review them to the applicable code.  If all goes well I could foresee more in the future as well.  $100/Hr is quite a bit better than I'm make at my day job too!

That is great! Now maybe this will give you the motivation to get more clients.

It's easy to get spoiled when making more money. It's sometimes unavoidable but try to not look at lower paying jobs in a different way now.
