Client does want movement between client areas. That includes consultants, but I think if we leave the project sponsor has no team.

Feeling so low lately due to keeping up with the joneses and comparing myself. I miss being a kid when I didn’t know what status symbols were and when I didn’t care about money. I remember even as a senior in high school thinking that 70K a year seemed like a massive salary. Sometimes ignorance is bliss I suppose.
