I don't recall this conversation, but thank you Tom for replying to it.  ;-)

I can say this:  Over the last 10 years, I have sometimes worked as a contractor for a company, sometimes a part-time employee, sometimes a direct employee.  I currently do only consultation work, where I'm employed by a Service Partner (CleverTrove) so technically, all the work I do is as an outsource provider.

The service I provide now is just as good, if not better, than the service I ever provided as an employee.
