Abstract:

The desire for more fulfilling work. The glass ceiling. A job loss. Corporate politics. Family and childcare concerns. The promise of more money. The quest for personal freedom. For these reasons and a host of others, more and more women every day are choosing to create more satisfying work lives for themselves by making the move from corporation to cottage. You may be one of them. If so, then you hold in your hands a valuable tool. Making this decision takes courage, hard work, and business savvy. The single greatest obstacle you'll face is not a professional barrier, but an emotional one. You are not just changing your job or location or career. You are making a life change of major proportions: you are changing your identity.

How to Succeed on Your Own is the first book to address this concern in depth. It tells you what to expect - and shows how to survive and triumph over the emotional, psychological, and social upheaval you'll encounter - when you strike out on your own and make the rewarding but demanding journey toward a self-structured life. It offers an upbeat, practical road map to mastering the personal and professional challenges you'll face on the way to success. Built around interviews with successful women entrepreneurs and experts, this book discusses timing your move, your emotional readiness, managing your fears, reshaping your business image, the emotional aspects of money, and motivating yourself. It also explores the rich rewards of designing an independent work style that reflects your experience, talents, and dreams.
