I've been working with contracting companies for about 6 years now and was wondering how I can go about becoming a contractor.
I reside in Atlanta, GA and have an IT background (virtualization/cloud computing) and eventually would like to start my own company. I can't just quit and start doing it so a smoother transitional plan will be required.
Is this as simple as working as a 1099 under my company name for a big contractor and building up experience? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Please feel free to ask me for more info. I didn't want to get too long winded right from the start. Thanks!
