So you have become one of the "consultant" brigade. Having done that for a decade in the mid 90s I can sympathise with your plight. It is an absolute nightmare when you have too much work in the pipeline and it is even worse when the pipeline is empty.

It is very much tougher if you are also raising a family, inconsistent cashflow creates tensions you would not believe. Try to get some sort of work/life balance.

Be wary of expanding you workforce, management requirements expand exponentially beyond 1.

Congrats with getting it started and good luck keeping it going smoothly.
