    Did this for around 9 months from 2005-2006, to be honest I found it hard to get enough work to make it worth being available even though I stuck at it. I found I got a lot more whiney clients there than I got when they were paying three times as much for my expertise through an agency too. I also found it took forever to get paid and I had to keep an independant record of my activity and check it back because rarely was my pay cheque spot-on. So I stopped bothering with them.

    I'm glad you had a good experience though, so the best of luck anyone who is short enough on finance to give it a go, but I can only tell it how I lived it and thus would say to anyone with a marketable expertise to set your expectations low at the outset and don't quit your day job straight away!

    isn't this dangerous for say counseling?
    Use your judgement, and above all, be honest with yourself. :)

    yea thats what i thought as i have had a look and there are area's that could easily be abused, one that seems massive is the fortune telling/ mediumship side and people are paying good money for...well read the reviews!

    But other area's seem ok like fitness and business?? My mum has just left her job and has loads of HR experience plus loads of training quals so would be good for her...i think?
