If that’s not working out, you can vastly reduce your risk by finding the one big client you need to survive.

And I couldn’t hassle my clients, because they had signed the invoices and passed them on to the accounts payable function in the client companies.
You’re going into a business-to-business world, meaning that you turn invoices to your client and the client company takes weeks or months to pay. Do find out who is in charge of payables, and keep yourself informed on payment schedule. It takes four times the resources to find a new client than to keep existing clients. and you’re hating the job, stick to it to deliver your best work in the morning.
Are you considering starting your own consulting business? In fact, I left a very good job as a vice president in a market research firm to go out on my own as a planning and market research consultant, and, after some rocky months at the beginning, I made that work. Establish a social media presence as a consulting business.
Becoming a consultant was how I made a living for 12 years between leaving Creative Strategies International and creating the product business for Palo Alto Software. Stay mindful of the old adage about a consultant being somebody who is between jobs. Don’t let your clients or potential clients doubt you.
