The good thing about operating as a contractor if often greater flexibility concerning hourly commitments and operating location. If you are allowed to work off-site and if your remuneration and contract are not linked to a fixed hourly commitment, you'll have the ability to pick up a few smaller contracts with other firms to help fuel further growth and to increase your total revenues.

Operating as a contractor does carry far heftier risks than standard employment, so I'm not about to suggest that the decision is easy to make (particularly if you do have dependents), but the rewards can be significantly greater than those available through standard employment channels if things work out.
