Here comes the fun fact of this article: Me too!
I really had to smile for myself when we talked about consultants. Probably, I won't be a life coach or job search coach. But during the last weeks I thought a lot about doing some changes around my work life, do less programming, do more consulting.
So why is being a consultant so cool?
About 10 years ago I believed that consultants made big money without knowing a lot. Consultants do their job because of the money, they are paid to fire people and in the end it does not even contribute to the success of a company. They want to sell some insurance for the sake of commissions.
Consulting did not sound nice or worthy to me like being doctor or nurse or teacher or social worker.
