Recently I was read article on Forbes. There was that "As a consultant, imagine my indignation! So I did what every other normal person in the same situation would do—start fervently whispering my defense of consulting to my friends. For some reason, they didn’t seem to care, but now that I have your attention, I’ll continue it here."

I was a small business consultant and loved it! It was a government job with the Commerce Dept. Little travel, OK pay and lots of fun and autonomy. I got to use all I ever learned at McCombs -- business plans, marketing plans, budgets, loans, explaining the stochastic events their industry faced, etc...A classmate started at McK, worked there for 5 years and then was hired away as president of a steel pipe manufacturing company...This March, while on a stargazing vacation in Chile, I met a 70-year old consultant working for Hilton. (We were having lunch at the Santiago airport Hilton.) Three failed marriages kept him at the grindstone. He was in Chile hand-holding an investor and reviewing blue prints for a new hotel. I asked him about opportunities in Cuba, now that the country is opening up to western investment. Two words: Forget about it! Reason: Absolutely no infrastructure, period. As a consultant, you can have fun and learn "the rest of the story," even on vacation. Lesson learned: Work your @$$ off, travel a lot, learn a lot on someone else's dime. (You are being paid to learn!) Then, move on. Consulting should not be forever.
