Bell Curve


As a self-employed consultant, you consulted your very first client right into bankruptcy. Smooth move, Ex-Lax.


You work for the government in the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation, helping them find more cost-effective methods of handling and disposing of waste. Your suggestion to not shoot discarded banana peels into space was a big money-saver.


You work for a mid-sized management consulting firm in Nashville and bring in decent revenue for your employer, but nothing spectacular. And your parents said you could never be average.


You are a self-employed consultant at the top of your game. You rake in the bucks and have the freedom of being your own boss. Give yourself a raise—you deserve it.


You are the top earner at a major national consulting firm. Only God could give better business advice than you, but She is so much less accessible.
