Christine may sound heartless; she's actually giving you great advice. I never accept full-time work with any client unless I am on-site with her/him. Do not accept full-time remote work. I explain that part of my value is that I spend a great deal of time staying current in my profession, and I work with a variety of clients, enabling me to import to clients things that work elsewhere. My availability is set at less than thirty hours because of this. Also, I typically work 65-70 hour weeks (I've now retired) so I've always got at least two or three jobs going at once.

Hi Christine, 

 

Thanks for the response. I think you can probably tell from my original post this has hit me hard; I could have done without being patronized on top of it. Regardless, I appreciate the advice and wish you well.
