At the rule-of-thumb for determining fees that has been discussed on this board previously, $25/hr equates to $25,000/year. That's low for professional services - for that matter, it's low for many low-skill services.

Hi, I just want to make sure that I'm clear on your statement. I know that the self-employed have to bill out at a higher rate than I might expect because of the number of unbillable hours and whatnot. But, from what you say, $2/hr. billable equates to less than $1/hr. fulltime ordinary. Is it really that bad?
