My vent is that last year my firm lowered their rates to clients so much that I lost a thousand a month for the same work. Then work slowed down so much that I can't get 40 hours a week anymore and I have to work for three or four firms just to get even 3/4 work, and I can't stand having to learn an entire new set of procedures for the administrative part of my job, plus having to deal with more than one firm owner is way too stressful. The worst part is I am finally realizing this isn't temporary, and I am going to have to give up a lot of the fun things in life that I am used to. My most recent strategy is since I just got a call from a firm I solicited a few months ago offering me full-time work but that is too far away from my house, I will use them as a leveraging tool to get the firm I work part-time for to take me on full-time by telling them I got another offer but would rather work for them hoping this will push them into letting me do all their work. I hate having to play games. I would rather just work. Life used to be very easy. This is depressing.
