I’ve got a steady job but my market is getting saturated with available engineers for contracting who are much more experienced than I. But this is great information for the future. Thank you for sharing your wisdom on this subject.

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.
