‘The Silent Subcontractor’

Laura Kalbag in her column on A List Apart:

For the last four years I’ve had this daft rule: I don’t work with agencies.

Why was I doing this? I was really just attributing a few dodgy practices to all agencies—and minimizing my potential to work with great people. By a basic definition, an agency is just a collective that produces work for clients. If I worked with one more person, I could be an agency. Now I’m feeling a bit silly for discriminating for so long.

Great advice for independent contractors. Laura’s perspective has definitely changed the way I look at the issue.
