It must be nice if you’ve had a 100% ideological match with every employer or customer you’ve ever worked with. Most people don’t have that luxury even with their domestic partner/spouse/significant other.
There are areas where Lu and I agree and areas where we disagree. We are able to do so with mutual respect and tolerance.
It is mercenary if you compromise your ideology or your ethics or morals in order to perform duties for your client.
It is consulting if you set aside your differences and work for the client in the areas where you don’t have to do so.
I hope you can understand the difference as I have explained it here.
I assure you that I have been consulting and am not a mercenary.
