How Less Can Sometimes Be More for Contractors
if you were to be adamant that a set amount of income is nonnegotiable then you may not be able to take advantage of valuable future enhancements linked to a different income structure
Would you be willing to accept less on the one hand if it meant you were going to get more on the other? This may be something of a cryptic question but for independent contractors it can nevertheless be an important consideration. Whether you choose to accept this type of approach is often a question of just how “independent” you are, as a contractor. To put it bluntly, it often depends on just how stubborn or set in your ways you may be.
Professional Representation Network is proud to represent contractors from all walks of life, with a wide variety of different personalities. Some individuals may be more headstrong when it comes to the type of life that they’re trying to set up for themselves and this isn’t always a good thing. It’s far better in many respects to be flexible when it comes to your aspirations, as flexibility often leads to getting a better deal down the road.
If you’re not able to grasp the big picture when it comes to the process of negotiation then you can often lose out. For example, if you were to be adamant that a set amount of income is nonnegotiable then you may not be able to take advantage of valuable future enhancements linked to a different income structure. The contractor who chooses to be defiantly independent at that stage wouldn’t be doing themselves the ultimate favour. If they had taken the time to negotiate and understand what was on offer from a broader perspective then they might have been able to come to a conclusion in a different way.
Professional representation is more than just a good idea for the independent contractor. Even if you feel you have strong negotiation skills, having somebody in your corner can be valuable. A network is as strong as the sum of all its parts. If you’re independent or outside of a network then you may never know what you’re missing and opportunities may pass you by. When you trust the advice of somebody who you have employed to help you in this way you’ll find that the opportunities in front of you tend to be bigger and better.
The Professional Representation Network is a complete contracting provider, providing a variety of services to contractors from varying industries around the world. They identify opportunities, negotiate contracts and provide support to contractors at every stage of the relationship.
