Your SMB Consulting Transition Plan [SMB Consulting Best Practices book excerpt]

Happy Thanksgiving weekend folks – harrybbb here – and I am the author of the above title. I like holding a daily virtual book reading by postung up a passage – this discussion concerns your transition to becoming a SMB technology consultant serving small businesses with Windows Small Business Server (SBS) and other cool platforms like Response Point telephone systems.

Your SMB Consulting Transition Plans

Any major life change requires a plan if you want to do it right. Becoming an SMB consultant is a significant lifestyle change for many, so a transition plan is in order. This might include transitioning in stages. First, you might be a part-timer earning other revenue by taking odd jobs or part-time work (such as the night jobs discussed earlier in the chapter). As your SMB consulting practice becomes larger and crowds out your other activities, you can completely transition into becoming a bona fide full-time SMB consultant.

Here are a couple of ways to begin and complete that transition. Most important, these examples insert you into applicable work environments, working as a technology consultant while serving a real client.
