    Try hanging your own shingle. You'll work 1.5x, deal with client churn, and chase them to pay invoices. Granted it's more money/hour. But if you don't have a steady stream of clients, you'll make less in total.

    I'm sure there's exceptions for those who have some exotic STEM skills where clients fall into your lap.
