Moving on from consulting
I alluded to this in my previous post, but for the record, I've decided to move on from consulting. I went into consulting thinking it wouldn't be forever, and my last 3 years have confirmed it. Not that it's a bad career - I've learned a ton, and have a lot of respect for the people who choose to stay in the industry... and the economics become very attractive the longer you stay, but it's just not for me. As nice as high level strategy work is, I'd also like to get grounded in the reality of making things happen on the ground. I want to build a product or a business. I want to work in an industry that I'm excited about. Oh, and I want my life back.
