Programming: Salary vs Hourly

Is it better as a programmer to be on salary or hourly? Do you want to be an employee or a contractor and what are the pros and cons of each?  Are you even qualified and ready to be a contractor?  How do you determine what is a reasonable contractor hourly rate?  This video answers all those questions and more while reviewing the business and personal options to help you decide which is best for you.

I also discuss the formula for financial growth as a contractor, what to do when there is no work, and some accounting options for contractors.

If you are in the IT industry, whether you are a front-end developer, back-end guru, DBA expert, full stack developer or something in between... you should consider whether being a contractor or on salary is best for you.

This video covers all these questions.
