Discussion on: How do you explain what you do?

Consultant here:

People tend to know what consultants are, they may not know the specifics of working in software etc, but they get the idea that I show up and build/fix stuff. Most of the people I am surrounded by who aren't technical just dont care past knowing what I kinda do.

If people were to ask now, I would say that im working on refactoring a core service for that gets 6m+ unique visits a month.

Sounds impressive enough, and its too technical for most people to care.
