Does it limit your prospects or pay in consulting? No.

Does it limit your prospects or pay if you were to leaving consulting? Yes. Pay is not the same across industries.

Thanks I’d love to!

Within consulting, you can find a place to make competitive money in any industry alignment, but some will be easier than others. Horizontal can be just as important as vertical.

It's when you have consulting to the client industry that pay is harder to stay competitive. Not all industries pay business talent as well as consulting does. Some pay better.

First year associates posting pictures of their timesheets on their IG story showing they billed 300-500 hours in March at their lockstep big law firms right after bragging on their stories about the $12k pretax covid bonus that they’re getting this year. Is this... impressive? asking for pity? pathetic? other? Has this always been a thing or do I just see it now bc I’m also a first year associate...

My mother (65) often forgets things, and often times things that matter - not like where she put her car keys.

It’s really important to me to keep my goals in the DL and work in silence. I have told her this - she simply said she forgot I ever said any of that, and promised not to tell.

I just picked up a side gig to design the web app for a door to door sales HR platform. Up til this point I’ve been doing $50 hourly for all my freelance.

Should I use my $50/hr as the measuring unit, or go higher? Lower?
For context, I have 7 years as a visual @designer and 2 years in dedicated UX.
