James Avery has formed his own company, Infozerk, and has been chronicling his journey into being an independent consultant. Scott Mitchell has also added his thoughts on going independent along with James.

These posts resonate with me personally as I have been an independent consultant on and off for the last eight years. I did work as a consultant for a consulting company for a little over a year when there was no work to be found, but otherwise, I have been independent. I have always tried to have at least one large client that helps pay the bills, and then several smaller projects that help provide for my family.

Being independent is risky, but it can be very rewarding as well. I know for myself, I enjoy learning new things all the time, and being independent has allowed me to both learn new things and get paid for it!
