Excerpt of article text...
I recently had an opportunity for a small consulting project and I thought it would be good to share some of my experiences from the perspective of a beginner consultant.
(All potential consultants should definitely read all of Bob Keeney's columns in Real Studio Developer for more tips on consulting. I'm sure I ignored much of his fine advice in my foolish little adventure.)
First, let me warn you that this experience did not go well and that's putting it mildly. Everything that could go wrong went wrong. (In a way I'm lucky. Most consultants take ten years to experience everything I got to learn in a couple of months!)
But I don't want you to take this experience as a negative one. There are valuable lessons in mistakes. I learned a great deal and hopefully you can benefit from my missteps....End of Excerpt. Please purchase the magazine to read the full article.
