In this series:

Introduction

Have you ever wanted to be your own boss, use your Atlassian product expertise in new ways, or experience different environments and challenges? If you’ve considered starting your own consulting business or side gig, I hope to inspire you to take the first steps!

Here’s my story of transitioning from end user to administrator, published author, community leader, and trusted advisor. I started sharing my experiences and mistakes and then took my Atlassian skills on the road.  I left the corporate world to travel the United States in an RV while helping organizations choose, configure, maintain, and migrate their software. 

In this multi-part part series, I’ll share my consulting journey (so far!) and some tips to help you either take the first steps or take it to the next level.

Let’s go!

Just finished chapters 1-9, and looking forward to the continuation. Really gave me a lot of food for thought as I make life and career decisions over the next few years. Thanks for putting this together.

Your journey sounds intriguing. I've ventured into consulting myself, and it's a rewarding path. Your blend of story and strategy makes it engaging. However, I would suggest you to secure your finances by using a proper bank account from https://www.businessfinanced.co.uk/startup-business-bank-accounts/. I am looking forward to following your series and gaining some valuable insights. Cheers to success!
