Taking the Leap
Deciding to go into business for yourself is not something to take lightly. The gig economy, rise of free-lancers, and millennials’ desire for flexibility are all driving an increase in new small businesses and solopreneur-ships.
When I unexpectedly found myself out of a corporate job for the first time in my career, my reaction was, I MUST FIND ANOTHER JOB! Then the second unexpected thing happened: people who knew me and my work started calling to ask if I would consider consulting for them.
I took the leap in mid-2016 and started Dotti Gallagher Consulting. I wrote about it in this article, published in the April 2017 issue of PRTactics.
