I've been thinking about this for a few weeks now, thought I might ask for tips around here.I'm currently working as an IT consultant in Germany. The pay is very good, but the job is not permanent, and can be "laid-off" almost any day. I'm pretty savvy in open source software (Linux, BSD, MySQL, PHP, perl, etc, etc, etc), and I have a very heavy programming background. So I don't mind at all tinkering with software to make it work.I'm planning to return to my country (Guatemala) in approximately 1 year. When that happens, I may look for a job, but it's not my idea to be a wage-slave for the next 40 years. So, since I'll have a comfortable cash cushion to support me for some time, I've though of a consultancy business to give local support for companies using open source software. The idea would be "You can use MySQL, Linux, PostgreSQL, whatever, on your company, and we will give you local support". Companies are starting to dip their toes into trying out open source, but managers become freaked out when they find out there is no local support. Well, I believe I could give that local support.Do you think this is too far-fetched? Maybe I'm not taking something into account? What would be things I need to think about before getting myself into this?Thanks.Marcos
