75k at age 21 is a fabulous place to be!

Do you have specific plans for growth in that regard, and are you interested in expanding towards being a bit of a micro-consultant, maybe with an assistant, or are you content being solo?


It's certainly a very comfortable place to be!

For this year I'm still in contract with an enterprise client until at least August, which has a value that is approximately equal to the combined earnings of last year. And being a micro-consultant with assistant is indeed something that would be great to have.

While working solo makes you very independent and free in your choices, there's also the fact that a day only has 24 hours and I feel like I can't scale that beyond a certain point, which is a shame.

My current battle is the fact that so far I have sold myself and my skills as the product and I'm not sure how to pivot that into a more productized consulting approach. 🤔
