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.

  1. Since I am a contemporary visual artist who has her own studio, but very new at moving my art into the buyer’s sight, I would really like to know more about Thurs.’s workshop at the McColl Center. I have been in the business world for so long that, now that I am freelancing, I’m finding out how much I don’t know about promoting my art. Please let us know how to find out more about the workshop at the McColl Center. Is there still space? What is the cost? How do we apply?

  2. please email me the link etc on the name of the stimulus money for folks who want to start their own business. thanks
