You want to carry the title of a Management Consultant, you'll have to travel. Working local projects forever isn't realistic and oftentimes, isn't real consulting.

Crappy locations can suck the fun out of travel but once you get your routines mapped out it will get better. Maybe there is something close to a wholefoods around if not decent restaurants...

Anyone else getting “when are you coming to visit?” pressure from your parents? Mine live a 3+ hour flight away (and actually all the direct flights have been cancelled).

I told them they are welcome here anytime but I’m not traveling with my unvaccinated kids right now. It’s getting unbelievably annoying!
