Providing IT Services, Working From Home

By parkerjj01 ·
What are some of the best IT skills to have or acquire in order to be able to provide IT services from your own office or your home office?

I am not very comfortable sitting in someone else?s cubical saying I?m an independent software consultant while someone else is calling the shots.
Also, the regular employees today see you as a temp worker or a contractor.
Your status is not what it once was. When you sit in someone else?s cubical today you are just a temp or a contractor. Also, I wantto do my part cutting back on polluting the air/environment with carbon emissions from driving to work.

It sounds like you've had exposure to a couple of different aspects of IT. Instead of looking for the best skill-set, I would consider evaluating what you like doing. If you like it, chances are you're going to be great doing it. Having said that; before venturing out on my own, I would find a good consulting company to get my feet wet and to get more exposure to the field. Some consulting companies are looking for someone to train (employees are cheaper to them that way). I would think that would be a good start. Good luck, and thanks about not polluting
