A Week in My Life as a Consultant


Good morning, please excuse the wet hair it is Monday It’s the beginning of the work week, and I haven’t vlogged in like a good two months So I thought that I would try to vlog this week because I have a bit of travel going on from monday to wednesday So I thought it could be fun It could also just be really boring because i’ll be in meetings all day And then you would just see me like at the airport and in the hotel But we’ll see what happens this week when I try to vlog. I have a call at 9 I’m just going to be working from home in the morning and then going to the airport later, but right now I’m just going to pack so I don’t have to do that after my calls I have my first call of the morning in about 20 minutes, and then yeah, I have some calls until about 11:30 And then I could have some lunch do a bit more work and then go to the airport I think we’re on the same flight. That’s a 3:50 Yeah, just had three calls this morning some emails and stuff and I’m gonna go get lunch with my brother And he’s gonna take me to the airport, so I will probably see you next in Chicago I’m in Chicago. I made it. I’m in my hotel room as you can see we have dinner Reservations at 7:00 p.m. We as in myself my two co-workers and the client too that we’re meeting today Just gonna like set up my laptop and stuff on my desk read through my emails a bit before going over for dinner I Always pull out this luggage rack thing from the closet So that way I don’t need to be on my hands and knees on the floor to open and dig through my suitcase Just got back from dinner It is slightly snowing outside not too much a kind of kind of died down now I need to get to the office by about 8:30 a.m.. So I will see you tomorrow morning. Bye I got up about an hour ago. Got ready Just did a little bit of work right now. I’m gonna head out in about thirty minutes to walk over to the office It’s kind of far It’s like a mile But I actually really just want to walk and not take a lift or anything Because I miss walking because where I live now I just drive around everywhere like I did in LA but I miss walking I miss I miss my London life a little Good morning it is about 6:00 a.m.. On Wednesday, and I am heading to the airport checking out of my hotel in Chicago And I’m going to Dallas And this is for a meeting with a different client than the one that I met yesterday here in Chicago I’m gonna land in Dallas around 11 a.m.. And then my flight out from Dallas is 8:25 p.m. Back home, so I’m gonna get home kind of late gonna be a very busy day So we will see when I can check in again Good morning it is Thursday around 7:30 a.m.. I got home at about 1:00 a.m. My flight landed at midnight and then Took me awhile to get off the plane come home whatever and today is gonna be a go into the office to work day Please do not mind my unmade bed back here. I took a nap earlier before dinner I don’t know if you could tell from the vlog footage so far this week, but I didn’t get too much sleep So I took like an hour nap after work and just had dinner And now enjoying some tea Because I had a lot of trouble in the beginning of the week today I just had a lot of different calls and things to get done other days I’m like talking more to people in person It just kind of depends Every day is a little bit different tomorrow is gonna get another one of those really busy days with a lot of calls I have a call from 9 to 10 10 to 10:30 10:30 to 11:00 11:30 1:30 2 1 1:30 to 2:30 to 3:00 and 3:30 to 4:00 Hello it’s 5:00 p.m.. On Friday I am Just finishing up all of my work for the day I just wanted to show you this is the post-it that I carried around with with myself All day today at work. It’s just like all the calls that I had back-to-back and I just like Couldn’t remember it all and I didn’t want to keep having to open my calendar on Outlook So I just put it on a post-it and then like stuck it stuck. It’s my laptop today I went by super fast because I had all these different back-to-back calls Which sometimes I like sometimes I don’t like because it feels like I don’t have time to actually do work because I’m just on the phone Luckily towards the end of the day I was able to get some work done. I actually love to work a little early Which was good because it started snowing a bit more and then finished up work at home I’m very grateful that my job is flexible like that I don’t have to be like chained to my desk from 9:00 to 5:00 every single day as I said I’m done with everything that I need to get done today I might spend a little bit more time just sorting through what I might need to get done next week so I can be prepared But I think you know for all intensive purposes this work week is over So I am going to end the vlog here. I hope you enjoyed I hope it was interesting to see what I get up to in a week in my job as a consultant and Let me know if you want to see more videos like this in the future Or if you’re just like that was really boring you like barely showed us anything as always Thank you for watching, and I will see you in the next one.

  1. I very much like the style of your vlog. It really tells a whole story. All the different scenes and closeups in between. Big compliment. Do you have a professionell editor to edit the video or how do you manage to do it?

  2. Love this video just as much as your PR vid!! I just started college & I’ve decided to pursue a bachelors in communications. You’ve given me a much better idea of what to expect in this field. Thank you & please continue to vlog your journey!

  3. For the people that have heard of the Sam Ovens Consulting course, let me know if you have questions. I’ve been through the course and will happily answer

  4. Hey, guys!!
    I have a question?
    I am gonna start my freshman year of college. My major is Communications and Publicity. As that be told me, my question is… CAN I WORK IN PR ???????

  5. was wondering about consultant work since an offer was brought to me and I got curious as to how it would seem to go, sadly I am unable to travel and be away from home for any extended time unless its like a regular job. if I was to be single and not having to be at home to care for others, it seems like a very enjoyable work/life style.

  6. I'm considering becoming a consultant post-grad. I've had so many jobs where I sit at a desk and practically stare at a computer all day and it is very dull and draining. I'm looking forward to every day being different along with working on challenging projects that will keep me on my toes! I don't have any consulting experience so watching these kinds of vlogs is very helpful for me!

  7. wasted 9 mins looking for information about your Consulting practice, nevertheless, good vlogging but I didn't find what I was looking for.

  8. Is it due to your company's confidentiality that you don't show any pictures or footage about your company?
    I'm really curious and surprised when a management consultant like you can still have time to vlog and edit a 9-min-long video 😉
    Anyways, nice video! Love it!

  9. Kristina, perhaps could you share some of the basic excercises, or activities in excel, powerpoint, and strategy development that a consultant apply on a daily basis?

  10. Your job seems so hard and busy, but looks you like it and enjoy it! That's so nice to have the job you like to do.

  11. Really enjoyed watching your vlog! It's hard to spot a natural vlogger like you, hope you will be vlogging more often as it motivates me to vlog more. Just subbed, peace.

  12. As soon as I saw that colorful walkway I was like omlll she’s in Detroit!!!!! I’m also from Michigan too! Downriver !!

  13. I am a Consultant with Deloitte East Africa – I like your Vlogs because i can relate. Keep doing more; they're awesome!!!

  14. consultants always travel this much ? then i want to becoem a consultant !! i want to travel and meet different people when i work

  15. Loved this! I am also a consultant and started sharing my journey on YT as well! More of us need to be on here!

  16. I don’t know anything about the type of consulting you do but it sure does look like a lot of fun traveling as much as you do!

  17. great vid. You are awesome 🙂 Very busy schedule flying from here to there and then on calls all day, admire your courage.

  18. Hi ru in finance consulting? My son wants to do that and is a sophomore now in college and double major in Econ/Statistics

  19. Nice staff. Can't figger out why the current technology can not minimize the travelling. Can't you just meet using the skype or other apps?

  20. I wonder what is better core finance or consulting.
    One of the stereotype my seniors tell me about consulting is that you're more prone to affairs 😂
    Anyways, great Vlog. YouTube algorithm is working great as I'm preparing for GMAT 😝

  21. This video is maybe visually interesting, however there wasn't much substance. Simply listing tasks that you do provides little insight, I think that's why some people are confused. For instance it would be insightful to explain what the business problems were, stating the subject matter or even the programs you are using to provide solutions to clients'. Of course you would omit any identifying factors relating to the businesses you're involved with.

  22. how do you do it, you work work work and then you stay alone in a apartment so isolated away from family and friends, whats your secret lol, dont you feel homesick and just wanna relax? how do you handle all of this, i wanna know so I can too lol

  23. Oh my god, I declare myself a fan. I loved this video and tomorrow I'll watch all your videos I can, this is great
