This article discusses career development in the field of consultancy. Many former financial executives, such as Ron White of The Janellle Co., grew tired of the corporate world and the hiring process. Instead they began their own firms that work with clients to resolve their finance-related issues. John Gillespie felt the demands on him in his corporate job were too great so he started Beyond the Bottom Line Co. Now he is in control of his own destiny and feels his work has become a reflection of his personality.
