Pay by Experience Level for Small Business Consultant

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Those who have worked for fewer than five years take home a median salary of $45K, and workers with five to 10 years of experience earn a higher $55K on average. After working for 10 to 20 years, Small Business Consultants make a median salary of $94K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $100K.
