For the over 50 crowd!

Feeling like my life is racing by being on the road 20 years, and saddens me that when I get home tonight my SO leaves on a business trip.

I’m a former McK consultant, 51, based in San Francisco. Wondering if there are low-travel/better lifestyle roles in consulting companies these days? I loved McK but couldn’t play the same role.

At what age did you exit Consulting? Do you think all the traveling has affected your health adversely?

Any one considered doing part time Consulting engagements via Services like MBO, Catalent GLG etc. Seems like a good way to stay in the game earn some extra income but do it on an Ad hock basis.

How to deal with the never ending exhaustion? Started consulting at the age of 33, and 20 years later chronically tired and impacting my motivation/drive both professionally and personally. Help!

How many of you have had to curse out our Millennial/Gen-Y friends about calling us old and inept.

53 here and thinking about the future - looking at a major decision point at 60 and then seeing where I am at that point. Opinions and plans on transitioning to “the next phase”?
