CONsultant n. 1. Somebody you hire to borrow your watch, so you can find out the time. 2. Somebody you hire to tell you you're right -- after you become disgusted with all the "yes-people" around you. [Also see CON, to swindle or defraud a victim by first winning his (sic) confidence, to dupe.]
PRO and CON are opposites. So a Prosultantsm is everything that a CONsultant isn't. A Prosultantsm is PROvocative, PROductive, PROactive. A Prosultantsm has an attitude that's different from yours. A Prosultantsm doesn't bring you fish, but goes fishing with you (and brings a big hook). A Prosultantsm wants results, not employment (cf., Resultant). A Prosultantsm tells you if you're full of sh*t (cf., Insultant) or if you're on the right track. A Prosultantsm does not pretend to predict the future, but instead helps you discover what can be known and what cannot be known, and develop a perspective to discern the difference.
Are you a consultant who's ready to quit sucking up and start
making sense? All right! Ready to be a Prosultantsm? Excellent! To use Prosultantsm, just send email to firstname.lastname@example.org,
