    4. Move completed projects to support / retainer deals
    5. Get customers with completed projects to refer their friends
    6. More Profit
    I was wondering about step 3. Now I can pinch yours.

    I think I've paid quite enough in commission thank you!

    You get my genuine thanks and I owe you a glass of fizz.

    What age (approx) if you don't mind me asking?
    What approx retirement income do you think you need each month?
    How will that income be generated in retirement?


    I'm wondering what to do with the rest of my life when my contracting life ends in Dec. Retirement is still a few years away but there seems to be very little chance of me working in IT any more.
    You have PM.

    Using Umbrella

    I have decided to go into Umbrella whether inside or out, for the day job.

    Would go perm but don't think I would fit into the modern world, of 1 to 1, objectives, office politics, team building .... blah blah , and money aside I do like the variety contracting brings.

    Keeping LTD ticking over with UpWork and ad-hoc freelance.

    Life since going into Umbrella ain't as bad as I thought it would be... not had to travel or stay over anywhere yet though.
