1. I have contemplated starting a consulting business

Of late my job was on the line, so I started looking for other jobs and even considered the consulting route.

My problem is figuring out where to start, then getting your name out there.

I was informed last week that my position was safe, but I have question for how long. So I continue to look and continue to consider the consultant route.
