Strategy, advisory, and program management. You have seen a ton, I am sure! You've seen what works and what doesn't. You may have a good network of vendors and consultants and other folks to draw from.

Being able to guide a team of folks on the right path is incredibly valuable and is an easier pill to swallow for employers because they don't have to think about the prospect of you leaving as deeply since you're less hands-on. It would be a harder sell to be brought in for hand-on work unless it's a short burn gig.

Is it silly to think of my dj as a potential storage of money? I have cash at the moment and am liquid. But am 25 so seems silly to be trying to spend 9k on a watch. I will likely never sell it but if things turn south I have at least 7k of value on it
