"It's a compliment, I think?" I remember telling myself the first time I ever heard it. I was sitting across the desk from my first consulting client when I heard, "You know, you are not the typical consultant!". At the time, I passed over the statement because I didn't understand it. I was just being me, so why isn't that the typical consultant.
I have worked the majority of my career in the Healthcare IT field. I love what I do and I especially love integration. It's what I live for in my career. In 2010, I had the opportunity to finally go out on my own and start D288 IT Solutions. It has been an awesome journey! However, I quickly noticed something from every client that I've had. Each engagement, at some point, I hear, "You're not the typical consultant." Finally, I started asking what do you mean by that, and the response I got back was shocking! "You genuinely care about the client and the projects."
It made me stop and really think about what I am doing. What makes us different from other consulting firms? I now call it the D288 Difference. Here is some of the list:
I am eight years into this adventure called consulting, and I still love every second of it. I now look forward to hearing every client tell me, "You're not the typical consultant!" If I don't hear it, then I know I am not doing my job right, and I need to go back to my list above until I do.
