I am comfortable doing these things because I have done them many times before. I was asked a lot about why I would want to work in a full time job after having been a consultant for so many years. My answer (which is entirely truthful): when I started out doing this work, the field did not yet exist: there were no jobs. I became a consultant as a means of giving myself a job. However, I like working with others towards common goals, and would have preferred to do so from the start.
