If the pay is more for contract, I would do it

I’m currently doing contract; I was a FTE of one of my clients now :)! I do get more $$$$; get benefits via my wife, and leverage write offs

Well yeah, I don’t do scheduling of my staff, proposals, just delivery; and get paid for every single hour. Having said that; it’s not easy to leave as FTE and get hired by them as contractors.

I did contracting for too long, will only take FTE positions from here on out. Experienced three no-fault lay offs and constant company changes.

Not sure if anyone else deals with this, but I feel so inferior compared to my friends at medical school or those who went to Ivy post grads.

The problem is I’ve never really been good at setting attainable goals and often get discouraged and feel as though I can never be “the high achiever”

Any advice from someone who has made the jump is appreciated.
