You probably spend more time working as a consultant than you spend in any other role in your life right now. Holey shmoley. Can that be true?
Yup. Before and after your work day, you may focus on excelling as a partner, spouse, parent, friend, hockey coach, volunteer, or civic leader; however, roughly half your waking hours are spent working.That could be a dispiriting thought, except… hold on a sec… you’re in charge of your workplace! You lead your consulting firm. You make the rules. You decide whether each week of consulting is filled with daily grinds or daily grins.
Building a successful consulting firm is a serious venture, but it doesn’t have to be a somber undertaking.
What’s the secret to injecting fun into your consulting routine? Must you hold a weekly hootenanny at the office? Should you only accept consulting assignments that require swimming in deep pools of dark chocolate?
Having fun as a consultant is easier than that. And less sticky.
