Pretty sure 90% of consultants who've been doing this more than a year and a half have done this and survived...

7 years on the road....

Originally read this as travel alone as was 😵
but then reread then was like 😪

5 years, same small Midwest town, 2 timezone commute

I’ve done more than that. It burnt me out big time. 😔

100% what are you doing?

I opted for corporate housing and flew my SO out. No kids, so 18 months in NYC was awesome. Even if there was a gap of a month and a half where I had to go to another client site with my team. So worth it

I spent 6 yrs taking the Amtrak to Philly from NYC; easiest commute ever.

8 years straight on the road

Yes been doing it for a year flying twice a month 2 weeks per month. Hard on the family, but experience is worth it. Try and negotiate to travel less if possible

Two years now, first San Jose now Toronto. It sucks and it doesn’t; you bitch about it until you use those points for an otherwise-would-be-$2500 vacation.

10 years on the road, lots like me

I joined Fishbowl and Nextdoor when wfh started and bet there are many others who did too. At least for me, Fishbowl is SO much more positive and helpful.

I feel like it’s a little contrary to what one would expect too since this is anonymous and not local. For context on Nextdoor I’m in LA.
