How to become a Web Usability consultant?

Does anyone have any experience becoming a Web Usability consultant?
I've been reading a lot about web usability lately and it's really caught my eye as a direction I'd like to take my career in. Currently I work a 9-5 as marketing writer for the web and was interested to see if anyone has started out on their own in Web Usability.
I'd like to get a site up once I've finished the required reading/classes I've chosen to get me started. My next step would be to offer services for free until I had enough experience/portfolio to actually start charging for services. I would use my site as a place to advertise/market/blog about what I do and what I can provide.
Does anyone out there have any advice or personal experience that might assist me with achieving this goal? I've already picked up the a good chunk of the required reading recommended by Google/Amazon.
