Right now, I've got just one major client and one minor client. It's
kind of scary, but I'm as confident as possible in this business that
the major client will continue to pay me for the next year or so.

Before this major client came along, I did what you do, and was happy
with the arrangement. It makes me nervous to put all my eggs in one
basket. I'm in the hiring process right now so I can pick up other
clients and maintain the existing ones.
