What credentials/degrees/certification do you currently hold? I ask because the skills you listed are not very advanced given today's technology; "I do a lot of re-engineering of home grown solutions (excel, access databases, paper workflows, etc)." Most high school kids today have these skills and more.

Please don't take this the wrong the way but unless you have the credentials; e.g. BS/CS or equivalent degree, PMP certification or other, I don't see you getting a lot of meaningful work to make the effort viable part time.

I retired from HP after 32 years in IT with a BS/CS, MBE, PMP, SCPM and ITIL certifications and it took me four months to land my first contract and I had all the professional resources at hand to help me. My point being it is hard enough to do this full time with everything in your favor.
