Be aware that working for them as an independent contractor might not be completely legal. There are requirements for someone to be considered an independent contractor that they may or not be meeting. Hiring someone as an independent contractor is a way for less ethical companies to get out of paying many of the taxes and costs that are associated with having employees, like FICA, Social Security, Unemployment, and providing benefits like health insurance. It is good for them, since it pushes many of these on to you, effectively making you pay for things they would normally be responsible for.

If you're curious what the differences are, look at this website and this website.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
