Do you ask yourself…? What is the right direction for me? What are my options? Shall I become a consultant? Buy a franchise? Buy a business? Start a business? What are the resources you need to reach your destination? Gail will focus most of her talk on consultancy. Managing change is a natural part of your path whether you are growing a business, becoming an independent consultant after holding corporate full-time employment, transitioning into entrepreneurship after a consulting career, or reentering a corporate full-time position after being a consultant. Gail will share from her own personal consulting experience as well as covering Lee Hecht Harrison materials on “The Road to Entrepreneurship.” Assess your qualifications… Assess your options… Identify your challenges… Develop your action plan! No one can guarantee the success of any journey, especially one that has as many potential risks as the road to entrepreneurship. But being clear about the direction you want to take will help make the process smoother.
