I am a private business consultant and I do it by word of mouth. I network to get initial clients, do work my clients consider to be high class and well done, and then word of mouth takes over. Work falls out of the sky if you are really good.

Ditto for what John said.

All my consulting work is through word-of-mouth referrals.

The challenge is getting those first couple of clients.

Hi,

It is not so easy to get Cisco Consulting Jobs ,I have been trying for a decade but there is no Use . I myself is a Cisco Certified Professional CCNA,CCNP And CCSP but no use till date.Cisco is very powerfull .So not so easy to get into Cisco. Get in touch with NASA guys if you really want to get into Cisco they are the people who developed IP Addressing .So,they can guide you very well in this scenario.
