My First Paying Consulting Job

I am looking forward to being part of this community and organization.

I am proud to say I had my first "paying" consulting job last night. Based on the exercise to determine what to charge, I admit to undercharging. I was contacted by a former client and great advocate to help them make some decisions. They are teachers, and only one worked this year so she could stay home with their new baby. They don't have much money and were happy to pay me for the cost of a CMA, and 2 hours of consulting services to determine whether their next step will be what to improve to get ready to move in a few years. And of course, using me to market their home! :)

I handed them an invoice, and they handed me a check. Nice!

So, thank you for having me ready for it.
