From Publishers Weekly
Inspired by her successful blog of the same name, life coach Slim shows readers how to navigate the terrifying yet gratifying transition from corporate drone to entrepreneur. She strikes a perfect balance between emotional encouragement and practical advice: Hating your job intensely, she writes, is not a business plan. What's here is: the nitty-gritty of getting a business off the ground, legal considerations, making the best use of social networking sites, the components of a business model, organized creative brainstorming, financial advice, shopping for self-paid insurance and benefits, and helpful anecdotes of real-life entrepreneurship. With her humorous insights into corporate life and an appealing no-nonsense yet empathic tone, Slim deals swiftly and incisively with anxiety, fear and hesitation. Readers will cheer as she teaches the tricks behind finding what makes you purr—what people will pay you to do, what you have a great passion for and what you are genetically encoded to do. This is a standout in the start-your-own business genre. (May)

The book will not tell you what business form you should use LLC, S-Corp, etc. or what accounting method you should use. There are plenty of books that can tell you that. If in doubt seek a professional's advise.
Thank you for writing this book Pam. I only hope I have the courage to pursue my dream of having my own business. You are only worth what your employer pays you.
Great book!!! Highly recommended!!!
Whilst highlighting the opportunities and potential pitfalls, she provides a great resource with helpful tools to know what to look out for and what to do. Sim removes the overwhelm many face by tackling the common fears and cutting the essentials like business planning down to size.
As an executive career and lifestyle coach I'll certainly be recommending Cubicle Nation to many of my clients who are contemplating their great escape.
It's easy to read and easy to pick up later for reference.

I bought this book after seeing it mentioned in another book. I was actually dreading reading it due to it's length and in my opinion, bland cover.Read more
