This website has lots of great forums (and people).

It would be nice if you had one of more forums on "Business".

After all, with all of the gurus on this board, there must be several people who either run an IT consulting business, or want to get into that. (Like me!)

I bet there are people on here with lots of knowledge in how to take your IT knowledge and turn it into $$$.

Hope the mods consider this suggestion!

This happens to be an excellent suggestion and it would be easy to add to "IT Pro" where some of this topic occasionally gets discussed.
Normally I oppose new forums entries because personally I feel we have way too many finite separations than are necessary but this one makes sense.

If theres any chance I could get the answer to that question, I'd be happy.

Been trying to figure it out for almost ten years.

Seeee.... We definitely need a forum to pool our smarts together to figure out how to make more $$$!

Seriously, though, what I meant by my suggestion was a place where I could ask things like...

- How do I create a good "Statement of Work"?

- Do I need insurance if I go independent?

- Is the risk of liability worth the extra potentional for income?

- And so on...

Only positive remarks so far in this thread so the answer is maybe at the moment.

It would be subject to discussion at management level so, have a little patience.

Not really, you can have a career without running, or being involved in running, a business.

No this is completely different and is a place for business owners to communicate ideas and solutions.

Yes, that was my intent... A place to discuss running an IT business - especially small business owners.

Things you might post in this forum include...
- Do I need liability or errors and omissions insurance?
- Writing a "Statement of Work"
- Tips on bidding for jobs
- How to find clients
- How to do book-keeping
- How to generate new customers


So, what exactly were you going to call this new forum?

Well we have to think about this as business owner and worker forum is way too long
so we need to be for owners and workers in computer business. I think "Computer Business" might do it.

OK Old Rich set up the Computer Business Forum and it looks great and is ready to go...tonight I will try to add some posts myself but in the meantime any posts anyone here can make would be a tremendous help. Seeing this forum take off will further us in trying to condense and make more specific all the TSF Forums so I urge everyone in this thread to get into the new Computer Business Forum and get some action going!!!!
