Excerpt of article text...

Being a consultant isn't easy. There are many risks that pop up along the way to trip up even the best of us. The rewards sometimes seem few and far between but when they manifest themselves they are awesome.

Perhaps one of the biggest problems with being a consultant is always being on the lookout for the next job. This means you always have your 'sales hat' on and, if you're like me, talk to friends, family members, and strangers about the benefits of custom software and how you can help them. You do this because you just never know when someone will need your services.

Most of don't have much of a support organization. So this means you're the Public Relations person who writes press releases and makes sure you're known in the community. Hate writing? Good luck. It means you're the I.T. department handling equipment purchases and repairs and handling the file, web or Subversion server when it goes down. It means you're a web designer and an expert at bending all of the various internet services, protocols and standards to your will. You are the support department and you're the one answering emails and forums posts about your products (if you have any) late on a Saturday night.
