Without wanting to give out any spoilers, I can share this tidbit: Getting completely out of debt and have savings to cover at least 6 months to a year of expenses (ergo: save like a madman and cut back on all but the most basic expenses) will give you a boost of confidence and security to go out on your own that will be harder to come by if you are living paycheck to paycheck. I can't recommend this book (and its companion website) enough. It's your key to become free. Go get it.
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.
