So I'm working part time these days from home, I work on a day/hourly rate basis rather than project/objective based. It's all been going ok with a rough guide to the number of hours per week to spend on stuff etc.
However this month everything slowed down and work got a bit more scarce. The stuff I have been doing relies on the boss to review/comment etc. and to decide what he wants me to do. We are getting to the situation where I'm spending time waiting for responses or stuff like that, not an issue in a normal full time job or when it's busy but now that means 3-4 hrs of work is meaning I have to allocate 6-8 hrs to complete. This then means that it's much harder to do the other stuff I need/want to do as I'm tied to the desk waiting for responses - generally always later than agreed or promised.
So the question - how do I reconcile this with charging? It's a small business to screwing people over isn't an option and neither is wee/shoes or bombers Long answer is we need a sit down to cover issues like this but short term I'm down on income and spending time when I could be doing other stuff waiting on responses that should have been in earlier.
Mostly wondering how others deal with it while I wait for some responses rather than getting out on my bike this afternoon.
