Like legions of corporate foot soldiers who have grown dissatisfied with their safe but stifling careers, publishing executive Harriet Rubin decided to flee the massive organisation in which she had become enmeshed and start over on her own. The life of a "soloist", as she came to describe this new professional direction, turned out to be both challenging and exhilarating--and one, Rubin immediately realised, that she would never trade for a return to big business. Soloing is a thought-provoking account of Rubin's career transition with helpful information for others who similarly hope to break free.
Drawing upon the wisdom of disparate authorities ranging from Peter Drucker and Tom Peters to Joseph Campbell and John Steinbeck, Rubin explores the various attractions, distractions, commitments, and opportunities that face those who drop out of the corporate ranks to go solo. She explains how to know when you're really ready (dreams were a major indicator for her and others, including Nickelodeon founder Geraldine Laybourne), how to handle the inevitable fears (in her case, by working harder than ever while savouring her new-found freedom), and how to get this new career up and running (including suggestions for building a personal "brand", maintaining visibility among clients, and creating effective proposals). The result is a truly unique look at a growing workforce segment that will prove inspiring to anyone contemplating going it alone. --Howard Rothman, Amazon.comFrom the Publisher:
Walk out the door of a big company, and what are you - stripped of that mighty identity? You’re free. You’re brave. And potentially you’re rich, if you take full advantage of the opportunities that awaits. Going solo is not like changing jobs, it’s changing your life.
