Consulting

Personal choice if you need skills or a network. If you don’t, keep on keeping on. Changed my trajectory for the better but it might not be right for you.

I found after 5 years I was a making more than the average mba grad from any of the top 5 schools so I figured “why bother?” One year later, I am reconsidering but worried I’ve waited too long. It would be a good way to make a career change.
