Don’t Quit Your Day Job: Pam Slim’s Side Hustle

I love Pam Slim. She has the best advice on transitioning from a corporate job to starting your own business.  Her book, Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur is a must read for anyone making the jump.

On Business Insanity Talk Radio on Friday we discussed:

1.Why do corporate employees feel crazy for wanting to start a business?

2. How to do the Side Hustle: Make sure there is water in the pool before you jump.

3. How to develop plans B, C and D.

Listen now!

I also spoke with Dan Janal, a true internet marketing expert and CEO of PR Leads. We talked about the role of press releases in today’s social media economy and how you need to be findable for the search engines (and not just on Sblogs as Dan says).

Finally I talked with sales leader, Tom Abbott about how to grow your small business through a solid sales strategy.
