    By luring others into it? What are you, an agent? Contractors are meant to look out for each other. To quote Brick Top "It can get you in a lot of trouble, thinking, Errol, I shouldn't do so much of it."

    If you had to ask a bunch of contractors (in the general area as well!!! ) their opinion on an idea then maybe you weren't cut out anyway so don't fret about it.

    Stupid idea. Now a course teaching them to bleed radiators whilst dressed as a gladiator? That would get a much more positive reception around here.

    LHH do these (under the guise of "starting your own company"), was led by a contractor funnily enough.

    I got it for free as part of a VR Outplacement package.. Was 2 days of fun and hilarity, 50% of course were welders/powder coaters etc, the other 50% IT contractors. Day rate discussions were less different than I would have thought :/
