Thank you for starting the discussion on this topic. I guess all the engineers share the same dream to work independently. This is one of my favorite topics and wish too! Not sure though, if that wish would get fulfilled and not sure when. What do you think should be the minimum years of experience in the technical career for being able to get enough "battle scars" and to be successful? Also as you have mentioned "In the engineering world, we often joke that a "consultant" is just an unemployed engineer."...very true, especially in the context of Indian job market. Looking forward for your next article.

Thanks for the interest!  The plan is to post a couple of times a month, so stick with us.  Didn't mean to tease.

Many will be reposts from my blog whiich now has about 150 posts on consulting.  We'll have some new ones too, based on questions here.

Looking forward to helping liberate s few more engineers via the wacky world of consulting. In the meantime, visit my Special Welcome for Geeks.

Please continue soon with next article.  I delved into reading the fist article hoping to immediately gather knowledge, but it was just a tease.
