Business is Awesome. You know it, I know it. This series is where I write about it.
I was talking to an old classmate of mine the other day, who works at a strategy consulting firm. We were catching up on the usual topics, when we started talking about his job, and what he does on a day to day basis. Now I thought consulting was a desk job, but I was amazed to discover he actually spends his entire time making slides.
Imagine that! We didn’t have time to get into the details (I’m not sure if it’s water slides, or just regular adventure playground slides), but that sounds great to me. I’ve always been a big fan of slides of all shapes and sizes, particularly the ones that drop immediately down, or “death slides”, as we used to called them. I was always terrified beforehand, but glad when I did them, you know?
Anyway, apparently they make slides using a “Power-Point” machine, and ultimately it all goes into Slide Shows in the end. I’ve never been to a Slide Show before, but they sound like a lot of fun. I’ll be sure to go to one, but not before I’ve applied to join a consulting firm. Spending all day making slides? Business is awesome.
