Marcos, your mentor's response certainly takes the cake for brevity,
and he is 100% correct.

I'm not usually accused of being overly succinct.  :-)

Sometimes, someone just getting into contract work may question
themselves and their worth, especially if they're working with
non-profits or ministries and they have a heart to serve; I know that
was my situation when I first started my contracting.  Hopefully my
prior post highlighted some considerations to help build a new
contractor's confidence and provide a framework to determine *how* to
value their time, not just how *much* it's worth.
