Ooooh, I strongly disagree with this one. I'd be losing about $25k a year
if I went with this scenario... And I don't think I'm undercharging on my
freelance rates.

Truth be told, though, they have to make the pot VERY sweet to get me to
consider going full time anyway. As a contractor, I have a lot more freedom
and it's worth a lot to me.

Just my $.02!
