Pamela Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur, will be the July 20 guest on Economic Perspectives.  Pamela’s book provides a wide variety of information for those dreaming about making the transition from employee to entrepreneur.  It covers not just the nuts and bolts of starting a business, but a full discussion of the emotional issues involved.Cubicle

Pamela Slim spent a decade traveling all over the country as a self-employed trainer for large corporations. She was surprised to find that many of the most successful employees at these companies harbored secret dreams of breaking out to start their own business. They would pull her aside after a meeting and whisper, “I would love to work for myself, but have no idea how to get started. How did you do it?”

So Pamela started a blog—Escape from Cubicle Nation—to share her experience and advice. Soon, questions and stories poured in from corporate prisoners around the world. As her blog gained popularity, she also interviewed some of the brightest experts in entrepreneurship on topics from finance to branding to marketing via social networks.

Pamela’s expertise in personal and business exchange was developed through consulting for corporations such as Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard, and Charles Scwab.
