Very nicely written, and I feel like I could have written most of this one myself.

I think I became a consultant not only because I knew I could make more money, but because I knew I would do a much better job than any of the consultant's I'd worked with when I was still an employee.

As a consultant, I still see other consultants who end up on assignments in the same place as me taking advantage of the system so many times. One guy charged his sunglasses to the client since he saw it as an out of town expense; they refused to pay it.

One major thing I do is pay for my own meals and use the expenses for my own. When I'm out of town, I don't know the restaurants or what they charge, and I'm not eating at McDonald's all the time, so I'd rather take care of that on my own. I've noticed that one little thing seems to make a difference to my clients, even moreso than any money I help them bring in.

Good stuff here; thanks.
