I used to think well if i work for somebody @ 20.00/hour wow if I went for myself and charged 42/ hour Thats double of working for the Man >
It took me 2 years after getting on the net hearing all the responses that you have to know YOUR cost of business , not the going rate or what the other guy charges.
costs are not the same for each company.It took me 2 years to believe the guys that i needed a cost analysis.
When i finally did a break even and watched it for a couple years
I was shocked that my costs ran from 140-200 per hour.What an eye opener.
So Flat rate was the only option I could find to help me with these costs.
