You may want to ask this in a consulting bowl, OP. There may be a few good insights on here, but I assume most of us are still in sales, so we don’t have the experience in consulting. If you find out, please share. I’ve been considering this myself.

You can definitely highlight, copy. paste!

Cerner and Cisco always seem to be looking for consultants, if you're ready to delve into that area. There is nothing wrong with a change.

I think there's some consulting opportunities in SaaS to build their sales team structure, comps, incentives etc. It's rare but it's worth networking and posting on your LinkedIn depending on the skillsets you offer. You could also do sales coaching and consulting?

Bit of a crowded space (sales coaching)…seems like a few get all/most of the $.
