Overview

Consulting means choosing your work, freedom, and the opportunity to make great money. Yet immediately diving into full time consulting is not for everyone. There are other options.

Many consult on the side in addition to their regular job. Although this can be straightforward or complex, in a surprising number of jobs it is not only possible, but sometimes your employer may actually encourage it. Other times your employer may be more restrictive yet there are often still plenty of opportunities.

In this Webcast we will look at finding clients, handling your employer, and more, including case studies of people like you have been there and are doing it today.

Speaker Bio

Ted Demopoulos

Ted Demopoulos' first significant exposure to computers was in 1977 when he had unlimited access to his high school's PDP-11 and hacked at it incessantly. He consequently almost flunked out but learned he liked playing with computers a lot. His business pursuits began in college and have been continuous ever since. His background includes over 25 years of experience in information security and business, including 20+ years as an independent consultant. Ted helped start a successful information security company, was the CTO at a "textbook failure" of a software startup, and has advised several other businesses. Ted is a frequent speaker at conferences and other events, quoted often by the press. He also has written two books on Social Media, has an ongoing software concern in Austin, Texas in the virtualization space, and is the recipient of a Department of Defense Award of Excellence. In his spare time, he is also a food and wine geek, enjoys flyfishing, and playing with his children.
