Consultants are usually better CSM fits unless you’ve actually wrote dev tickets before. Very difficult to transition directly to PM. However it’s quite easy to spend a few months to a year as a CSM and then transition to Product. If you’re a CSM who’s actually managing implementations then you’ll probably make comparable amounts to a PM. If you’re more on the sales side (Account Manager), then you’ll probably make less. PM has more stable exit opps IMO because you’re closer to the Product/Tech and can potentially jump to a big tech firm (e.g. Google) for dumb amounts of money TL;DR easier to break into startups as a CSM. PM can potentially have higher comp upside and you can transition from a CSM role relatively easier. Go with the type of work you actually want to do long term as you can make good money on both sides of the house

So, I‘ve been chatting with a girl for a few months since this whole COVID thing started. She’s really cool and we get along great. Last week we met up in person and ended up “having fun”. The only thing is she basically has no boobs. Just nipples on her chest. I couldn’t tell before because we had only vchatted, but now I don’t know if I can get over it. I like big boobs. Should I tough it out and try and get over it, or just move on to another girl?
