Discussion on: How I Lost My Consulting Job

I'm working as a Software Architect for a company. I'd be lying if I said I really wanted to add a daily commute to my lifestyle, but the work is interesting and enjoyable. Helping a company transition from legacy technologies (in an industry very slow to adopt anything new) to newer technologies is an interesting challenge for me that avoids all the AI/ML buzzwords I've had to deal with this year.

My problem honestly was it was a challenge to find clients. I spent a lot of 2017 building a product for my consultancy, and the only place that was really intrigued enough was the place that hired me exactly a year after I showed them. I could go on about that experience, but I was experiencing burnout again after everything that came from that business.
