A Lil advice needed

I'm trying to be more profitable obviously as everyone is.. Now my debate is wether to shop around for more / different companies or actually cut back and take more work from 1 or 2

If you were a plumber, would you rather work solely for an old man and his son in law, or would you rather advertise and take one job from many?

Sorry. The moral of the tale is don't leave your financial well being up to a select few. The more customers you have, the more freedom, opportunity, and control you have.

Yes, the more clients you have, the less it impacts you if you decline to work for one of them.

In general, I never put all eggs in one basket. The one company could stop paying you, or go bankrupt, then you are screwed. If you have several companies the chances are they will not all screw you at once, or all go bankrupt at once.....

Unfortunatly it's a doggy dog world out there and you have to be prepared to get screwed, because it will happen eventually. Even if its a back charge, you loose!
