Ever consider the glamourous life of an overpaid independent consultant? Being a free agent and setting your own hours while raking in the dough sounds fun right? Let’s see…one client over due on an $800 bill, another client over due on $1600, others, I’m behind on a project that I underbid and overworked so I can’t bill it yet and my network just died, the mortgage is due Sunday, cable, phone and electric are due, the kids are making Christmas lists and funny thing is they want to eat.
Working for yourself…the stress-free way to retire early! Oh, and I almost forgot the best part: everyone you know wonders what you do and assumes that you are goofing off all the time.
