Freelancing saved his sight

Freelancing saved the sight of David Berger, reports The Detroit News (expired link). Berger chose to become a consultant after doctors told him that a stress-induced rupture in his eye could render him blind. To escape stress –and blindness from what doctors call "executive eye syndrome" — Berger became an executive for hire. In return, his decision to become a consultant has alleviated stress, given him time to spend with family, and an opportunity to feel appreciated again.

I’ve previously mentioned why people become consultants and I’ve invited readers to tell me their reasons for becoming a consultant. In a recent post, I noted that consulting can help resolve anxiety. But what do you think about consulting? Does it sound less stressful than a nine to five job? Is consulting a lifestyle? Let me know what you think.
