My wife and I live in Raeford, NC and own Nazka Business Services LLC. We're looking to transition from state employment to contracting.
Here's some info that may be relevant from a pervious post of mine on ACP.
Best Wishes, Pau
"It sounds like you have a tremendous amount of experience in the areas in which you hope to consult, so what will be new is how the work is delivered (i.e. consulting vs. employee). A conservative approach is to find a consulting firm and work with them to get a lay of the land on how that world works (before venturing out on your own).
Have made the move from employee to consultant in a number of fields, I have found two major things to be different: 1) you'll be getting paid for results/solutions vs. effort, and the timelines are usually shorter, and 2) the "nuts and bolts" of consulting [tracking hours & deliverables & communicating both, sales funnel: leads to opportunities to contracts to invoice to payments].
The alternative to working for a consulting firm is doing it all on your own out of the gate. Often the biggest challenges to this are networking/sales, and having to learn the "nuts and bolts" on your own (good news is that these activities are very similar regardless of industry, so there is a lot of learning resources out there)."
