It is time?

By dg.itpro ·
I have been in the IT field for about 14 years. The better part of my first 10 years was with one company. After I left there I was privileged enough to work in a very exciting position doing an entire build for a startup (network, servers, telephony, wiring, etc?) I loved the experience. When everything was said & done and the dust was settled (literally) I was left wanting more. That plus the commute was stating to take its toll (over 50 miles one way). After leaving this position I took yet another, what seemed like, a very challenging position. There were talks about SAN environments, Blade Servers, network upgrades and such. Score! Well, not really the economy took a dump and well I was told flat out none of that would materialize for a good 3-4 years. So I was left doing mainly support work. I was lucky enough to take a side gig during those days that was yet again, another build for another startup. This one involved PCI compliance and building the entire infrastructure. It's been a great experiance and I am here now full time but...Well here I am several months after the build and getting the company PCI compliant and I find myself looking for ?something else/more?.

I just had an interview this morning and I just don't see myself working for one employer for a long period of time anymore.

I have been thinking a lot and I MEAN A LOT, about consulting.

Is it time for me to seriously make this happen?
What?s the best route to take?

Thoughts, comments greatly appreciated.

You like the challenge of projects, but don't like the day-to-day routine of normal support.

You may very well be able to translate your experience into a full-time consulting gig.
