NAICS: 541 Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services
Description: Provide consulting services
Initially I started doing consulting during a job layoff where I also did consulting.  I was without a job and had bills to pay.  Luckily, I had built a good reputation with my clients at my previous job and before I knew some of my previous clients were calling me for some consulting. They then began referring some of their friends and I decided it was time to begin my own consulting business. Consulting was something that I knew how to do and I had bills to pay so I decided it was time to start up my own business. My goal of opening my consulting business was to make money. Money that would help pay my bills. It was my experience which has allowed me to be successful in running my own business.
