I have worked as a database developer for many years and would like to know if and how it is possible to create a business around database consulting.
I have several questions:
1) How to start the business quickly and make it profitable.
2) How to find new clients. I have no experience in sells/marketing.
3) Is this a viable business today?
4) How much would it cost to start the business? How many days/weeks does it take to start the business?
5) Are there any ways to get it funded? I don't want to ask for money from relatives/friends. I have small savings but no source of income currently.
Thanks in advance
