Contracting is not much different than working as a mason
Student (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – November 7, 2015
Contracting is very stressful in the beginning. Self doubt, deadlines and worrying about getting paid, all contribute to the stress of contracting. I learned that when I alone was responsible for everything under the sun, I was going to have to push the guys in order to be competitive
There are perks of course, like leaving anytime you wanted to (If possible) Finishing a job early, digging in dirt that is not too rocky or hard a granite. (Believe me these things are important!) Meeting interesting people is a great perk also.
Leaving the job to someone else
Stressing wheather or not you might have under bid a job
