Samantha wants to know if I hated my first job. No, I didn’t hate that job. In fact, I’m scrambling now to think of a job I hated. I’ve never disliked an entire job. Sure, there have been unpleasant aspects and I have quit a few jobs. But I’ve never hated everything about a job. I can always find something I like.
However, I love consulting because, if I ever dislike a project or client, it’s just a short-term contract. I can walk away when I’m done. But, even then, I’ve had many of my clients for 10 years.
