Your experience is valuable and organizations will benefit from not having to pay benefits. Additionally, initial feedback has shown clients are less likely to work with consultants who have rates under $100/hour. If you are still unsure what hourly rate is appropriate, we suggest using a multiplier of 1.5 - 2x your most recent hourly wage.
