    We are in the south east going through selling last year and trying to buy this year, any houses going are priced “keenly” anything that isn’t priced to sell is just not shifting.

    Oh hang on a minute! That isn’t what I’m doing, I’ve been a contractor for years just never heard of “contractor attitude” that some poor sharepoint fella was told he didn’t have enough of!

    The next article is my take on the difference between the permie job cycle and the contractor one. The permie one involves hiring all year for jobs no one really knows why they are hiring for and the...
