Currently 2 YOE in process improvement consulting, thinking about trying to lateral to MBB.

It’s 3 weeks since my endoscopic brow lift and eyelid surgery. I did it because, at 60, I was losing my side vision- also- I was starting to look angry.

I got a phone call from a firm I turned down 2 years ago, just wondering if I would be interested again. Only turned them down due to distance from home, but they are fully remote now, would need to come in every once in a while for client things. Crazy to even consider it? Move from BDO to a regional firm. Owner and staff was great, he said, name your price. Need some insight, thanks!
