I consult for pension funds on corporate governance issues like executive compensation, boards of directors, conflicts of interest and the like, plus I do research, writing and press outreach for a company that provides governance analytics. I also take on occasional freelance writing/educational projects related to my field and do some public speaking (stuff that doesn't require an overnight trip).
I work about 20-30 hours a week, although my work is pretty seasonal. Fall is busy, while I can have summer almost off if I choose, which I do!
I am lucky because I absolutely love what I do and it is very flexible. I also feel like what I do contributes to making our economic system more democratic and participatory, which is as it should be. And now, after Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, Adelphia, et al, my family actually understands what I do.
