Time to consider the New Career Economy – what is coming is a time in which most workers will be, in effect, contractors or temps and self-employment will become the norm. What does that mean for executives in career transition? My goal is to help people consider business ownership as a viable, even necessary, career alternative, plus gain confidence to pursue self-employment options, specifically the franchise solution.
