PM Me if you want my RL name and check out my Linked in profile.

If you see something that you don't like or can be worded differently PM me. I'd appreciate some constructive feedback.

I have a number of friends that have made big to-dos about changing their LI to say "CEO of T-Roy Inc" or whatever. IME, the bigger the noise they make about this on LI, the faster they fail. I've taken it as "I'm not excited about what I can do, I'm excited about a title", which isn't a good sign.

My company has hired independent consultants. The three I just looked up all used President.

President at Name Healthcare Consulting
President, Name Consulting Group
Founder & President, Name Healthcare Management Consultants

No idea how they've done it "officially" or for the bank.

Also agree on the hiring an accountant. My spouse works for himself and it gives us peace of mind to know at least our taxes are done correctly.

I used the term "my company" loosely. These decisions are not mine to make (yet!).

President and executive titles should be reserved for companies with several employees.

People who list "owner" or "founder" on LinkedIn for their 1-2 employee businesses appear much less pretentious (in my opinion). If it were me, I'd probably just list "Consulting Actuary" at John Doe's Consulting LLC. Anyone who cares about such titles can figure out that you assume all functions of senior management at your 1-2 person firm.

Motivation?
I was let go from a large company from a RIF, and I don't want that to ever happen again.
I'd like to be a presenter at SOA meetings and if I am doing that, then I can drum up business.
I'm already doing it thru Jacobson Group and like the travel.
Hospitals in my area are starting to use Actuarial consultants and have tight budgets. I can be competitive.
I think I am a good communicator, creative enough and a hard worker to do well in consulting.
No daily commute.

I am going to be an Actuarial consultant for Health Insurance and LTC Insurance. I've got 20+ yrs experience, FSA, and have a few niches with SAS programming and finding errors/opportunities, cost saving opportunities, and playing with contracts both on the insurer side and provider side. Living between Chicago and Milwaukee I have a lot of potential clients too. Already have two that requested jobs beginning in 2018.
Good luck T Roy!

I hope to do the same someday, as I think contract work for actuaries will become more and more commonplace in our economy.

I work for myself and I really don't care to call myself anything other than a "Consultant". FSA and experience says it all. If it drums up business by someone searching for "President Actuary" then I will do it. However, I don't think it would.

Also, for the separate checking account, would a bank like me to call myself a "President/CEO".

Thoughts? Thanks!
If you're setting up a separate entity (i.e., a corporation as opposed to a sole proprietorship), then yes, you likely need to identify yourself as an officer of said entity or have significant ownership/controlling interest. President/Chairman/Janitor should do it

Also, linkedin request sent bro
