|I just launched a part-time consulting business that I'm hoping to grow.|
I'm currently working my local contacts, but I'd like to expand my reach to non-local entities.
Ideally, I'd be working with smaller teams, helping overloaded dev teams make decisions about DevOps, automation, product architecture, etc, along with then implementing those decisions. I'm also definitely open to working with larger orgs, but in my experience, they are less likely to be open to the part-time consulting option.
My question is: where do I look? Most job boards are FTE only, and the consulting business seems to rely a lot on "I know a guy who could help with this." type references.
I'm located in VA, USA, so I'm a long ways away from the typical Silicon Valley startup scene, although we do have a nice little niche here where I am.
Thanks for any advice or stories you might have!
