It's not really much less stable than working for an employer who can lay you off at any time. It is more variable. And it FEELS less stable. I wouldn't do it without a nice healthy safety net because of the variable income stream (I have a two year e-fund).

It takes a certain mindset to make it work, and an ability to market (which I'm not actually very good at - and I hate). But all in all I like it better.

Plus I don't have to write another annual review ever again in my life. Thank you, all the powers that be!
