RE: So you want to be a consultant?
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this article. I found it to be very informative. I would add one personal note "always give them what they want" no more no less. Don't try to do more then the client is asking for because then they will come to expect it. Don't do a half-baked job either and they will feel you were worth the money. Also always give them a detailed invoice including any free hours worked. I do have one question do you have any advice for invoicing and payment? Such as should I use an Excel spreadsheet and do manual invoicing or should I create a PHP form that will store my invoices generated in a MYSQL database? Should I use a program like quick books?
