It’s super confusing how to become a consultant. There’s not a clear path at all, but it’s something that’s very desirable to do if you are looking for flexibility, autonomy, high pay, and have a desire to add immense value to organizations.
Lisa Schulter had been interested in becoming a consultant for several years but never really understood how to make that happen.
She had been in Non-Profit Healthcare Management for many years and was really, really good at it. She even enjoyed the work quite a bit at first but as her values changed and what she wanted from her career changed along with it she realized that after working in 3 other employee roles in the space, she really didn’t want to add a 4th to her resume.
When we met her and started working with her to identify her ideal career, she had been a listener to the podcast and she knew that she was an introvert looking for a role that allowed her to use her knowledge and experience from the non-profit healthcare space, but also to have more reflective time and thinking time (even recharge time) that many introverts also need.
