I like how you're getting a week a month. There was a time when I was an independent consultant, but I could not get work very easily in my specialization. Either that, or I wasn't marketing myself right, hehe. But having the ability to turn up and down the knob on income is awesome! So many on this board sweat the decision to pull the plug with the megacorp because once they do, they figure (rightly or wrongly), the next job, if they need it, will be a greeter at megalamart (I exagerate!!).
