I'll second that.  It seems a little self-serving for both racke and I
to say that (since both of us do IC consulting); however, I've been on
both sides of that table.  

I've done multiple IC catalogs on a consulting basis and I've done
small consulting jobs.  Obviously, big catalog projects are nice to
have.  Even still, small jobs are nice too.  You work for an hour or
two and make some quick cash.

it expedient to get someone who's obviously more skilled than myself
to tackle specific problems I'm having.

This may qualify as the longest "me too" post in history, so I'll wrap
up.  Even if you want to be an IC consultant (or more likely a
web/e-commerce consultant), it makes sense to have a network of people
smarter than you to get tricky stuff done quick.
