Going Solo - Independent Consulting for Jedis

When you started you were but the learner, now you are the master. You can make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs, but you're getting tired of Greedo and Jabba demanding a cut. If you dream of being your own man, join us in outfitting your ship to embark on the quest for freedom.

Leaving a perm position to go independent is a huge decision. We'll discuss whether consulting is right for you, what to watch out for and things you can do to help ensure success.

  • Opening Introduction - "I'm Gaines Kergosien, I'm here to rescue you."
  • Getting Rich - “Wealth...more than you can imagine.”, “I don’t know. I can imagine quite a bit.”
  • Possible Pitfalls - "I've got a bad feeling about this."
  • You Can Do It - "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
  • Marketing Yourself - "The Force is strong with this one."
  • Creating a Company - "Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?"
  • Contractor Agreements - "Let’s just say we’d like to avoid any imperial entanglements."
  • Managing Finances - "Into the garbage chute, flyboy!"
  • Paying Taxes - "The Phantom Menace"
  • Tax Deductions - "These aren't the taxes you're looking for."
  • Working Remotely - "You're all clear, kid! Now lets blow this thing and go home!"
  • Subcontractors - "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope."
