On Your Own is a thought-provoking, realistic guide to the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of self-employment, written for the millions of people who aspire to it. It's a pragmatic examination of the psychological, emotional, social, and financial pressures that face fledgling consultants, freelancers, entrepreneurs, and cottage industrialists. It identifies a five-step sequence that leads them out of the corporation and into success in the venture. The steps (dreaming, assessing, planning, escape, and life after the escape) are described thoroughly, an entire section being devoted to each one. On Your Own includes checklists, case histories, quotations, and lists of resources compiled by two men who have actually done it: doubled their incomes within a year after leaving their organizations and setting out on their own.
