Hello,

I am amazed that some of the best techs I know still call themselves "IT admins". They are great at actual implementation and are great at big picture systems integration type stuff as well. 

Whilst, some of the worst technicians I know dress in fancy suits and call themselves

"consultants".

So tell me, in your view what is the difference? When or how does an IT admin metamorphose 

into a "consultant"?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
