    I know Mummymoo and Maxine uk are both consultants, might be worth dropping them both a PM to have a chat.

    Pros - it is very rewarding, you feel as if you are helping people, timings are flexible.

    Cons - you don't make as much money as you might think, it is hard work (hard physical work, too - carrying around boxes, etc.), not all your members will be as delightful as the people on this forum, arranging cover for holidays can be awkward, you must be an organised and outgoing person. And the leafletting!!!!

    I am not a consultant myself, but I do know a few, and have helped out from time to time. And they all seem to love the job.

    I thought the opportunities events were meant to give you it "warts and all"?
    I agree with RegField's pros and cons.
    I don't think you make much by running one group, and you need to have good membership numbers. I'd love to do it, but don't have the time to run even one group, I think there's a lot more to it than we see!
    Good luck if you go for it :)
