My wife does; she's an event planner and manager for several "Fortune 500" companies.  I'm retired, but I consider myself to be the in-house consulting chef and all round dog's body.

Rufus does your wife do a lot of traveling. Have read an MBA is the best course of action to getting a consulting job thinking of going back and getting mine.

I'm an IT consultant.  An MBA is not required, but it would depend on what type of field you in which you want to consult.  What are you wanting to do?

I am not a fan.  I wrote code as a jobber for couple of years before I burnt out and took a full time job.  The hourly rate was awesome, but there was no security and it was 100% on the road, 3 months here , 6 months there etc...  The hours were long and you were the first one thrown to the wolves.  A big problem was always having to look for your next gig when you are just starting this one.  I am much happier now and have been at my current job for almost a decade.

I am enjoying the consultant role, and I'm going into my seventh year. I have a bit of a safety net in that I am full-time for a company with a normal salary, benefits, and insurance. They contract me out to other companies at an hourly rate, and they handle the hassle of finding the next gig.

I am doing Cloud automation development and support.
