Pay by Experience Level for Small Business Consultant

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


For many Small Business Consultants, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience have a median salary of $51K. Those who have been around for five to 10 years can expect to take home more — $68K on average. On average, Small Business Consultants make $96K following one to two decades on the job. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $102K on average.
