I’m confused Why can’t you do that in consulting? Unless you hate consulting AND want to move out west. I know plenty of people who live in small areas and are consultants.


Looking to stop travelling, want to spend my nights working on home projects

Looking at data analyst, business analyst, and strategy roles


Of the three cities you listed, Boise probably has the best opportunities. If you want to be in New Mexico, Albuquerque will have better opportunities than Santa Fe.

Have you ever commuted for work? Also considering living an hour outside Denver

Lived in Boise and loved it!

It is cold but not too extreme. It’s very close to Oregon and more on west side of Idaho.

Not sure what your experience is but Thornburg investment management is hq in Santa Fe. Likely few opportunities in Santa Fe but it’s a beautiful place (grew up there)

Interesting, thinking of doing something similar lol

No I moved to a mid size city, but there’s farmland 30 mins out. Just thinking of building my empire lol Thinking I’d rent a room whenever I wanna hang in the city

I've heard Boise is growing rapidly. Lots of west coast tech opening offices there.
