Okay, so my reason for wanting to become a consultant is so it's easier for communication between my clients and future clients. Right now, I've sold myself as a 3 employee start up company, but really there is only me... so I really hate beating around the bush saying "we" when there's only me.
Currently my company is a sole proprietorship... which legal structure is suitable for consulting?
What other legal/administrative prerequisites do I need to complete to be a consultant?
I've dealt with open source technology and rarely with proprietary platforms. I am interested in building enterprise software for an low saturated niche market so what is the best way to learn Java EE?
If you offer open source consulting... should you ever offer proprietary alternatives? Or is this just stupid?
What would my current clients feel if I told them MyCompany.com is now a consulting service, and I'd like to do case studies on them?
Is it normal for consultants to develop software?
How would you approach companies, or would you need a large pocket for advertising?
