With so many folks these days not only losing jobs, but also being underemployed or generally disgruntled with their jobs, I wanted to ensure the EI Series included a discussion about leaving your job to become self-employed. I had the pleasure of speaking with one of the foremost authorities on that topic, Pam Slim, who is a seasoned coach, writer and entrepreneur, not to mention that her Escape from Cubicle Nation blog is one of the top career and marketing blogs on the web.
Pam and I cover a number of topics around self-employment, including:
-Why cash flow is one of the biggest challenges facing the self-employed;
-The biggest risks and rewards of being self-employed;
-Why you need to have a viable business model (and test it out) before you make your leap;
-How the mindset of an employee and an entrepreneur differ;
