Have you ever thought about starting online consulting?

Maybe you already do that without even realising?

Are you confident enough to share advice?

There are lots of people who are total experts in their fields. They give away tons of practical advices everyday without even realising. Nevertheless, they don't feel confident enough to start charging consulting fees. They don't think that they have enough knowledge and experience to officially start their careers as online consultants. What a pity...

Online consulting is one of the best ways to make some extra cash on the side. Also it is one of the best ways to provide yourself with full-time income. It all depends on how good of a consultant you are and how much do you promote yourself. Hourly consulting fees are usually much higher than hourly wages in the same field. You can consult people from home or wherever you want to be, you just need to have laptop (in some cases just phone) and internet connection. Online consulting is perfectly suitable for people who are interested in modern ways of living like digital nomads and internet entrepreneurs.
