There’s an expression “you can take the girl out of consulting but you can’t take the consulting out of the girl”. OK, so that’s not really how that goes, but it fits the situation!
As of June 1st (2019), I’m resuming my consulting business - Kuntz Consulting Inc. - and am back to being a Microsoft partner and independent consultant. This is so new that I haven’t even had a chance to update my website; so, depending on how quickly you read this post and click on that link, you may see the old message “no longer taking on clients”! Rest assured, I’m working on the updates as you read this.
Didn’t you *just* get a job?
Yes, it wasn’t that long ago that I decided to go back to full-time employment (January 2018). As much as I love who I work for and with, I simply was not ready to fit into the structure and routine of regular full-time employment. I gave it the old college try, so to speak, but I really missed the flexibility and variety of my consulting work. So, it was with some very mixed emotions that I decided to resign from that position and return to consulting.
Well, that’s hard to say as it’s still all pretty fresh right now. I am fortunate to keep a good relationship with my now-former employer and I will be continuing to work with them in a consulting role, albeit part-time. I very much look forward to continuing some of the fun projects we’ve got underway and planned for the future! That alone will keep me pretty busy for a while.
I’m heading to Microsoft Business Applications Summit next week in Atlanta, Georgia and it will be my first time at this event. I can’t wait to dig into more Power BI and Power Apps/Flow stuff while I’m there, and broaden my knowledge!
My summer is going to fly by between next week’s conference, a busy June schedule, and a big vacation in July. I’m pretty sure it’ll be August by the time I blink next. I doubt I’ll be making any big plans between now and end of July but will be considering if either GP Tech Conference or GPUG Summit fit into my budget and schedule. I haven’t committed to either yet and would like to do one of them if I can swing it.
Otherwise, I’ll be reaching out to former clients to see who still might have projects they would like me to help with and building out my schedule for the rest of 2019 and into 2020.
