Dozens of colleagues have asked about working as a consultant and voiced numerous concerns about what they think they’ll experience as a traveling consultant. In this feature, I’ve compiled some of the pros and cons that I’ve experienced as a traveling consultant.
Clearly, for me, the pros of being a traveling consultant have far outweighed the cons, or else I would have left the industry a long time ago. I consider myself a superhero of consulting and love being flexible enough to perform in multiple roles as needed. Willie Nelson sums up my passion for client service in a few words:
*On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again*
*Songwriters: Willie Nelson
