The Truth About Consultants

Once upon a time, a machine broke and nobody in the company knew how to fix it...

Every minute of downtime was costing them tens of thousands of dollars. So, they called a professional. He walked in, surveyed the damage, and fixed the problem within minutes. A month later, his invoice arrived - totaling one million dollars. The president of the company was outraged, demanding an itemization. The consultant complied, and responded with two lines: "Parts and labor, $25.00. Knowledge of which screw to turn, $999,975.00."
