As I venture deeper into my Community Management career and see this type of work growing in so many different ways, there seems to be a future opportunity for consulting in the community space. Startups, community-based organizations, and even gov't bodies all have, or will begin, embracing community work in their day-to-day.
With that being said, have any of the CMs here already ventured into the consulting space? How do you get started? How much experience did you get under your belt before you felt ready to dive deep into the consulting world? And what's the first piece of advice you'd give someone looking to become a consultant themselves?
