Consulting Firm
« on: Jan 13, 2009, 10:14 »
I am thinking of starting my own consulting firm. I suspect with all the nuclear industry coming down the road it would be a good time to start my own company. I am a Measurements and NDA guy. Measurement people are not very common and the demand should increase as the industry grows over. I have ten years experience with a physics degree. I have done HEU, LEU, and PU NDA.I have worked  in both DOE and NRC regulated facilities. I have done D&D, program work, procedures, training, etc. Any feedback on this idea would be appreciated and any suggestions from current business owners would be greatly appreciated.

its all about the bonding and insurance. then you need a slam dunk contract-i.e. get on as many bidders or approved vendors lists as possible and then get a good old boy contract.  your resume may sell yourself but will it sell your company. you need to team with a bigger company- SEC, Bechtel etc.  if you are a vet, that helps and if you are a minority even better. (this is business folks). if you are a one man show- u would be just as well off doin 1099 otherwise you will not enjoy the personal tax deductions etc as a incorporated "consultant."  If you know a minority business man- go that route. It will be the wave of the next administration. Face it the last administration didn't do  small business or minorities any good. (Can you say KBR???)  Set up shop as close as possible to the work. Go to Los Alamos and set up shop, etc.

Have you looked into networking by going to things like ANS national meetings?  Getting involved in ANS professional divisions is a great way to meet people who can either hire your firm, or know someone who could.
