Outcome Based, Performance Based...

I am seeing more & more of this at every level. Work now, pay later. Really not comfortable with these models, especially for solo-preneurs, consultants etc. Time is your only asset & investing in one of these ventures is very risky.

It also provided companies with very inexpensive resources in which to grow; an excellent return on investment (usually zero aside from some training).
