Is Now The Time to Start Your Own Business? – Interview with author of “Escape From Cubicle Nation”

If I’m not listening to satellite radio, I’m usually tuned in to NPR. Last week I heard this interview with Pamela Slim, author of Escape From Cubicle Nation on Charlotte Talks and thought I would pass along the summary and a link to listen.

Here in Charlotte and all over the country, cubicle-bound employees fantasize about leaving their corporate jobs and becoming their own boss. One of our guests today says now may be an excellent time to take the plunge into entrepreneurship. Pamela Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation will share with us some of the reasons that people exit the corporate life to become self-employed, good reasons and bad reasons to do it, the risks involved, and how to prepare oneself.
Guests
