Exactly, Elna. My clients hire me (and pay me quite well, I might add)
because I CAN do everything for them.

I earn more per hour than I ever did as an engineer. Last year I made
almost as much as my husband, who is in the top 0.5% for engineers in our
graduating year (according to the annual salary survey of the Professional
Engineers of Ontario).

I LIKE being a generalist. I LIKE having complete control of my projects
from start to finish. That's one of the big reasons I went back to
contracting after a short hiatus.
