>How does one get the highest rate?

The right question is, "Where do I feel comfortable?"

Find out the average price for services like yours in your area. You
can construct a bell curve around that point. If you stay in the fat
part of the curve, work is easy to find. If you move upward into the
tail of the curve, you're more likely to be satisfied with your
rate, but finding jobs is harder.

Find the point at which you feel comfortable, and set your rate
accordingly.

As you grow in experience and ability, the whole curve moves upward,
so ask yourself if you're comfortable doing what it takes to become
a more valuable resource. This can mean working at a lower rate,
struggling with a new subject matter area, getting along with
"impossible" colleagues, or investing in training. ...RM
