Yeah, I imagine that can be frustrating, but the great thing is that with good communication skills you can take advantage of being the hardest worker, and get more work.

I think the biggest advice I would say to you wanting to start your own company is to communicate clearly with your clients and take a LOT of time at the beginning of each project to truly understand what your clients' specifications are.

It could have saved a lot of pain if I would have done that on a couple of projects instead of just jumping in head first on trying to get what I thought the client wanted done.
