Looks like I’m stayin’ another month here…

I’ve just been extended another month on this client.

But my momma didn’t raise no fool.

I’m raising my rate by $20, to $130/hour.

It’s only a month. It should net me an ADDITIONAL $3200 over the $17,600 I’d be making at my old rate (gross, assuming 40 hours a week), and no client is going to quibble over $3200 especially since I’ve been charging MAD overtime lately.

They’re flush with money here. What they lack is available skills and time.


That means that (if all things go well), I may be looking at a net worth increase of another $15,000 or so (after taxes of course assuming a 30% tax rate because I’m paranoid like that).
