comment Skill requirements and resources to run a private GIS consultancy/ GIS service providing firm?
Running your own business takes time to (lots of hours need to be put in) - getting a name for quality is much more important than quantity. Confidence you will knocked back countless times - but always get back on your feet. When you win that big contract confidence flows back. Most importantly be honest with client/banks/bills. Give 30 days for your clients to pay then add +3% weekly to the bill afterwards helps maintain cashflow in as they always pay on day 30. This save hours of chasing the money.

You need to 'kill' all connections first - help.arcgis.com/en/geodatabase/10.0/admin_cmds/support_files/… Then Shutdown. or SDE persists connections.
