I recently interviewed Pamela Slim the author of “Escape From Cubical Nation”. If you have been thinking about breaking away from the corporate life and doing your own thing, then you will certainly want to read and learn from someone who has coached many in making the shift. Pamela knows from personal experience for she made the shift, and knows first hand the mental and emotional shifts that one has to go through to make the to move to being an entrepreneur.
Pam cites many reasons for people moving to becoming solo entrepreneurs and here are just a few: 1) corporations have had lots of changes over the last 20 years and many have become fundamentally difficult places to work. 2) Some people are just not cut out to work in large corporations. No matter what the reason if you are considering the move, then it would be highly recommended that you read Pam’s book “Escape from Cubical Nation”. If you have any fears or trepidations which would be natural, one thing would be remember what is you happiness worth?
Pam help you navigate your fears, thoughts and mental challenges as you face the transition and her advice comes from years of coaching people through the process successfully.

I recently attended a meeting of the “Disruptive Thinkers’ in San Diego. The speaker at the regular Monday evening event was an author by the name of Neil Senturia. I really did not know what to think, but I was in for a pleasant surprise. Not only was Neil entertaining, funny and witty but his message was meaningful and dead on the money!.
If you are an entrepreneur or social entrepreneur then you are going to want to listen to my interview with Neil Senturia about his book entitled ” I’m There For You, Baby-The Entrepreneur’s Guide to the Galaxy”. This book is comprised of a series of rules that Neil has developed over the years, as a result of being an amazingly successful entrepreneur himself.
Let me share a couple of the rules with you to see if you agree:
Rule #1: Return every email and every phone call.”
Rule #2: Networking is a profession. Become professional at it.”
Rule #3: You must go to every meeting and every event; in particular, the ones you know for sure will be a total waste of time.”
It really doen’t matter if you agree or disagree with Neil’s rules or not, the book is a must read for anyone who runs their own business or is about to venture out into any entrepreneur activity. Please take a few minutes and listen to our interview I think you will find our dialogue inspiring and the content very useful.
