The presentation was last week. Even the president was impressed and had ideas to take my plan further than I hoped for. All good ... except. He looked at me and said "we're going to make sure you succeed". I knew what this meant.

I had proposed employee status with benefits. I received an offer for independent contractor status with a much higher commission but I'm on my own if I accept. I am so tempted to take it on. I believe the plan will work.

It is tough, very tough. Good medical insurance alone is quite high. How do independent contractors do it? I'm estimating my expenses and they're through the roof.

We're still negotiating but I have few days left. Advice welcome.
