The last couple of months I’ve been asking a dozen or so people I know (who are independent consultants) for advice. Yesterday, I thought I should broaden the group that I ask advice of and maybe be help others as well … so started a LinkedIn group this morning called “Independent Software Consultants”.
If you are an independent software consultant (or interested in being one) and want to join the group, you can find it in the LinkedIn Groups directory at Independent Software Consultants. I didn’t tie it to a region, but it will probably be mostly people in the US.
My idea of the group is for it to be a place to ask for and give advice on things like:
- setting up your own business
- finding work
- finding subcontractors
- working with clients
- networking with others
- getting your name out
So if you’re interested in helping (or need help from) other independent consultants please join the group and participate in the discussion.
