“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” Confucius

Admittedly it has taken me a while to find the job I love, but when asked about retirement plans it always makes me have a sense of rising panic, because I really don’t see myself ever wanting to retire.  Being an independent consultant means that I can pick and choose the projects I work on, and consequently work on interesting and exciting new developments in Health and Care.  Every project I work on has the objective of improving lives, and all of the companies I work with have the highest ethical standards, so I work with really great people too!  How lucky am I?

As all clients and potential clients are aware of my “filtering process” I think I ought to issue an apology to all of the projects which I have been unable to accept recently.  This is down to no other reason than capacity, I cannot stress enough how fortunate I feel to be in demand, so if you have a project that can start after June, I am still open to discuss these, but please don’t feel that any work I have been unable to accept for the first two quarters of this year has been turned down lightly or because I don’t see it as a valid opportunity.

To top it all this week I also received some generous feedback from a client this week.

“I am extremely happy with the report and amount of information you managed to pull together for us.  It was a pleasure to work with you and I hope we can do again in the future”

I always aim to exceed expectations, but most importantly give clients what they need, so this made my week.

Do you love your job? What makes it special?
