QuestionBreaking the bonds of tyranny Pinmembershiznit77017-Nov-10 4:43 
This section of the forum seems a little dead, but I'll give it a shot anyways.
 
Ok, so maybe the title's a bit of an exaggeration. But I am beginning to feel this way about salaried employment. I've only worked in two jobs but have talked to many others who describe a similar situation. Things are tedious in the corporate world, projects get stalled, code gets "maintained" (aka hundreds of format changes) and there's the inevitable waiting for approval and doing things to your bosses' "standards".
 
After reading a couple books on getting into consulting it seems like it might be the thing for me. What I'm hoping to find here is some advice or even better wisdom from others who have gone down this road.
 
I have 3 years experience and already feel like I am more productive and adept than my co-workers. I am by no means an expert but I also don't see my current line of work as a way to get to that level.
 
What are some of your regrets or decisions that you are grateful for having made? Is 3 years experience too early to start on my own? What can I do to better prepare myself for the business aspect of consulting?
