Thanks for the reply!

I guess what I was thinking is not consulting in the traditional sense that you two see, but as more of a specialized service. In my area there is a large pool of demand for .net programming(Chicago), so much that I think with the right networking I could work for myself without needing a headhunter to find me jobs.

I didn't dream up this job description either. The company I work for as well as my previous employer had specialized projects which were done by a purely .net consultant who would come in as needed to make suggestions/modifications.

I don't fancy starting a firm or having employees underneath me. Just the power to command more respect for my time and the opportunity work on a greater variety of projects. I realize that the politics and bureaucratic aspects of being a developer won't go away, but from what I've seen roadblocks get moved much quicker when there's a direct cost to them.
