You've defined a contractor, NOT a consultant. Just because one calls
themself a consultant, does not
make them one. I believe a good consultant cares about your business and
tries to give you the best
they have to offer. I'm not trying to say money isn't important, but it is
not the most important thing. My
biggest reward is taking a problem, inventing a solution and then seeing how
pleased the users are
when that solution meets or surpasses their expectations. Money can't give
you that same sense of
accomplishment.
