Summary

We tend to fear that if we specialize in solving an expensive problem, we will get bored very quickly with our work. Then what? Will we be stuck in a boring job that we created for ourselves and crying ourselves to sleep on $500 bedsheets? Will we be doing the exact same set of activities day in and day out for our clients?

Show Notes

In The Positioning Manual for Technical Firms, my short book on positioning your development shop, I talk about several fears you will face as you narrow your focus.

One of the fears I mention there is the fear of boredom. That's what this audio essay is about.

Bore.... dom.

The main idea is this: we tend to fear that if we specialize in solving an expensive problem, we will get bored very quickly with our work. Then what? Will we be stuck in a boring job that we created for ourselves and crying ourselves to sleep on $500 bedsheets? Will we be doing the exact same set of activities day in and day out for our clients?

What is The Consulting Pipeline Podcast?

Podcast outreach services: Lemme save you some time. No.

Normally I'd love to consider your guest but... no. Why?

The show is in hiatus. I'm not publishing new episodes now because I'm developing a new podcast. You'd know that if you looked at the title or the few minutes of content of the latest episode, but some of you seem to have this magic ability to not see that obvious signal. :)

The rest of you: WELCOME! There's gold in them thar archive of episodes.

How do coders become consultants? They specialize, develop a point of view, and market based on their ability to move the needle for clients.

This podcast explores the transition from coder to consultant through interviews with those making and enjoying the results of this transition, and occasional audio essays from your host Philip Morgan.

This journey takes time, so why don't you join us now?
