Are you thinking about becoming a consultant in 2015, or have you have made the decision and are just getting underway for 2015? Then this is the Meetup for you.

Two seasoned members of PATCA (The Professional and Technical Consultants Association) will be leading a monthly roundtable meeting to discuss ideas of interest to those just starting in Consulting or Independent Contracting.

The Format is as follows:

1. First, there will be a quick round of introductions by those in attendance.

2. Next, there will be a 15 to 20 minute discussion around a specific topic related to starting an independent contractor business.

This sixth meeting we will select one of the following topics for this portion of the meeting.

• How to get started inexpensively and quickly

• How to decide how much to charge for your services

• How to decide which specific service to focus on for your services

• Should you start, or continue, working for a Broker as an Independent Contractor?

3. After the presentation, there will be a formal discussion on the presentation topic. Then the floor will be open to answer general questions on starting a consulting practice. We will end promptly at 6 PM.
