With the days getting shorter and the evenings getting cooler, it really is starting to feel like the seasons are changing. It’s a good time to reflect on how you spent your work life last fall and winter, and make some serious choices about whether you want a repeat of that this year. A career as a contract executive, not an employee, gives you freedom, flexibility and control. It’s still a busy life, but you call the shots about who you want to work with and what type of work you want to do. And best of all, you can work with a variety of clients at the same time which gives you lots of intellectual challenge, keeps the days busy, and allows you to use the range of skills that you have developed over your long and successful career.
