    A consultant is simply someone who’s hired by different companies to advise them on whatever situation within their firm that they need advice on — so yeah, if your mom *wanted* to leave her current job and hire herself out as a consultant to companies who need a business analyst, that’s certainly something that would be possible.

    Maybe she doesn’t want to do that, though. Maybe she likes having job security and a steady paycheck and doesn’t want to bother keeping track of all her own tax records?

    Anyone can call themselves a consultant. Unlike certain professional titles, which may require a certain level of education or other minimum qualifications, a consultant title doesn’t really mean much.

    If she’s planning on consulting in a field that’s related to her area of expertise, then the job may not be all that different. For example, if your mom did analyses of capital expenditures for restaurants as a business analyst, and she plans to do the same thing as a consultant, than she’s going to be doing pretty much the same thing so it’s not a different job – it’s only a different title.
