How did you settle on your rate?

You can take a look at contractor job boards - I know in my area, contractors earn a very minimum of £500 a day.

For me I based it on a gut feeling. Now that I'm earning a bit more, I'll probably up it.

Something one of my professors said about "emergencies" stuck with me though -> "My hourly rate is $X/hour, but it'll take $500 just to get me out of bed in the morning."
