I have long been interested in the life of a contractor. But I am wondering
if those of you who contract find all the flexibility in time and place that
you are looking for - things like working at home, keeping your own hours,
working less than full-time if you want to, taking days off and extended
Is contracting all it's cracked up to be in this regard?
Tony Markatos responds:
Yes - if you are in the drivers seat (i.e., have the proper contacts).
No, if agencies are driving you.
