Moonlighting During Startup Offers Great Experience

When you’re first starting out your computer consulting business, it’s usually best to moonlight. Since you already have another job, you aren’t putting yourself in a financially precarious situation.

Not only will you keep your family in a stable situation financially by moonlighting, but also you will be giving yourself time to decide whether you really want to start a computer consulting firm.

During this moonlighting stage, you will discover how many billable hours you have against the number of non-billable hours you work. Non-billable hours include business building activities such as marketing, business development, paperwork, organization, billing and collections, and accounting.

After you moonlight as a computer consultant for a little while, you will be able to make an informed decision on whether or not you are really cut out to run a small business as a computer consultant. Since you only want to have a job you enjoy, take the extra time moonlighting to make sure that you want to run a computer consulting firm full-time.
