I'm getting that itch to go back to working for myself exclusively. Partly, I think it is because I'm passionate about the work I do on my own, and not so much the DoD contracting work. Of course, the big fear is not making enough money. And benefits. And the marketing.
A while back, Hal Pomeranz put out a great series of articles about his experiences going it alone. I'm linking them here as they have helped me, and others can get some benefit from them.
Enjoy. And I hope they help you as much as they have helped me.
