Tom has written a new book: Winning the Contractor Fight
"The Contractor Fight" is what Tom Reber calls the battle between your ears. We all have stories and experiences that have formed us into who we are. We are what we think, and the battleground is our mind.
The Fight is not with the people you think are "cheap customers." It's not with the unlicensed competitors or the "illegals," as many contractors think.
The Fight is with yourself.
Sadly, most of the struggles contractors have are self imposed. It's friendly fire. The negative ways we think about ourselves and our worth… friendly fire. The growing debt, working too much, small bank account… friendly fire.
Winning the Fight is a choice.
