Consultants with the best professional attitude get paid well. This is one of the most famous scenes from the movie Pulp Fiction.
When everybody is pooping their pants, a cool-headed hot shot consultant is brought in to solve sometimes obvious but always delicate problems.
Consultants are not there to be somebody's friend. They're there to tell clients what to do in situations where they lack knowledge, time, skills or the ability do handle matters themselves. If the clients knew how to solve their own problems, they wouldn't call you, would they?
Morale of the story: if you're a #consultant , don't forget that there are companies who would gladly pay for your knowledge, expertise and experience. Even if that knowledge seems like everybody posesses it, trust me: not everybody does, and not everybody is excited about the technology you love to play with. Charge more for your services and treat whatever you know as a business.
