Exited consulting after 3 years into tech sales and although the money & wlb is great, this is not what I want to do long term and I don’t see any openings for other roles in my regional office. What do I do? Feel like I screwed up my career massively since I had other options and I have crippling regret for choosing the $$$ offer. Trying to spend this year gaining more analytical & design skills but I feel like I’m totally set back and gave up my one good exit from consulting
