Contractor Success Stories – I’m Rich
I started contracting in 1998.
I have a house that is worth about £750k, no mortgage, ample pension, plenty of money in the bank.
During the last 20 odd years I have had several holidays a year, including destinations all round the world.
Contractor Never Had to Work Away From Home
I hardly ever had to work away from home, I worked about the same hours as permies, maybe a bit more, but got paid for every minute!
I know I have been lucky, as well as using certain skills to make myself saleable and to find work.
Perhaps the Subject article will be true in the future but I don’t think it true of the past.
I have not regretted going contract, but you need to be sure it is the best thing for you.
