Dude, for real, contract work is just crazy. I’m starting to feel business is only stable when your not in sales or strategy. I don’t know how my dad does his own thing. In my case, I spend about 95% of time perfecting my craft, and re-learning it based on new technologies and R&D. The rest is marketing and followup… which still accounts for a lot of time, but spread really thin.
Anyway, jacked. Will I ever learn it enough to know wtf I’m doing?
Now, BellSouth’s contract, but that’s friggin’ easy. I go through a recruiter, and I’m technically working there, so that doesn’t really count.
Company X who f-d me out of $4k out the blue calls me back, negotiates release of source code, and pays me, and the check clears. Rock!
I then get another check today (2 of 3) for another job I did months ago. Rock!!
Then, another job I started back in… I think December of last year, I just got a call from the client. He wants some additions to the prototypes to get it near a working version, which so far is miniscule work so the project is no longer on ice. Considering this weekend is no school, timing couldn’t be better. Schweet!
I dig freedom of chioce, but damn… this stuff is more volatile than mutagen.
