Irregular Work

Last week and the week before last, I was swamped with work. This week nothing! Nothing at all. I do not know if there will be any work until the end of this year. Yikes! I knew the work and the income would be irregular and I was financially prepared for this yet, it is still scary.

The company I work with is a little disorganized. They rushed me last week and today I received a phone call from them inquiring about a package of documents I have delivered on the 5th of December! They have a very heavy workload but it looks like the customers are pulling them in all directions and they cannot plan the business well.  I think they are trying to close some of the projects and bill the Customers this month. The lack of new work may be due to the year end, I do not know.

Initially, I had asked them to guarantee me at least 4 days a month on the average so, I will give them 6 months to see what the average comes to. If they cannot keep me busy at least 4 days a month, I will tell them we cannot be exclusive. There are other companies interested in doing business with me so, I may talk to them.
