A 1099 Perk: Take Fridays Off
A few Fridays ago I drove into work (the client site).
I got to my desk, logged in, and noticed the office was almost completely dead.
So I logged out and left to enjoy the beautiful weather and hang out with my wife.
As a 1099 you don't have to ask a boss permission to take an an impromptu day off.
Sure, you might not get paid if you're on a time and materials contract, but I have never regretted blowing off work and creating a three day weekend for myself.
And guess what, I decided to do the same thing today.
Have a good weekend!

I wrote a book about becoming a 1099 solo federal sub-contractor. I write about the benefits (and risks) of going 1099.
