Thanks for your straightforward reply, Pete! I really appreciate that.

I know when most people ask for advice, they are just looking for validation. I really don't know what I want to do. I'd like to try to find a way to work this out. I was more looking for tips on people skills -- something computer guys aren't always so good at. If you're freelance, how do you deal with difficult or stubborn clients? How do you handle clueless managers? Is the grass going to be any greener on the other side, or is this just one of the things you have to learn to deal with as a developer?

In the end, there may be no resolution. But I admit that I feel very inexperienced as far as dealing with business-people who are trying to get software designed. I was hoping to pull from the experience of others here. I feel completely comfortable doing the development, but it's the "people" side of things that's got my stymied. The software is the easy part, but the communication, now that's something they don't teach you! WTF | :WTF:
