Startup curious? Pamela Slim coaches your cubicle escape June 26

For some, it’s not a question of “if.” It’s simply a question of “when.” For others, it’s completely a question of “should I?” Because when it comes right down to it, you’ve got to love being an entrepreneur. You’ve got to enjoy the craziness and the stress and the fear.

And I won’t say anything about “security,” because—quite frankly—entrepreneurs are always more in control of their destiny than the average cubicle dweller.

But to make the leap, sometimes you need some guidance. That’s why it’s a good thing that Pamela Slim of Escape from Cubicle Nation is coming to Portland on June 26.

Back in the days when I was posting a little more frequently on More than a living (my first WordPress blog squeeee!), I used to go back-and-forth with Pam on a regular basis. Chatting about the need for meaningful work and finding a purpose.

She knows her stuff. And she’s garnered a great deal of respect in the industry.

So I was happy to hear that Portland was on her list for her book tour. And now, the dates for the Escape for Cubicle Nation in Portland have been announced.

After spending four years behind my computer screen writing my blog, and then book, I am hitting the road. And I cannot wait to meet YOU, and to work on your plans to start a business, or start a non-profit, or start a movement, or just get moving on the little side project you have been thinking about forever while sitting in your cubicle.

Now, fair warning. Pam is a coach. So this will be a pretty intensive all day thing. And it may be that you go through this whole thing and figure out that entrepreneurship isn’t for you.

But if it sounds interesting, I’d encourage you to go. Block your calendar for June 26 and spend around $150 (depending on when you get your ticket).

You’ll get:

  • Day-long workshop at the fabulous and funky Kennedy School
  • Light breakfast, coffee and lunch.
  • A workbook with exercises, tools and a useful resources section with my hand-picked favorite websites, blogs, books and programs
  • A signed copy of Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur
  • A follow up 2-hour coaching gym call, where I will get to all your specific questions that you didn’t think to ask during the workshop!

  1. Appreciating the dedication you put into your
    blog and in depth information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in
    a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed information.
    Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.

  2. […] same name.  I have not read the book.  A friend of mine says it is very good.  A big thanks to Rick Turoczy for calling this event out which I probably wouldn’t have heard about […]

  3. I love Pam’s book and would love to see her, unfortunately I’ll be out of the country. I’m going to be interested in seeing how “Cubicle Nation” evolves in the next couple of years as the myth of job security is further reduced and workers rebel even more in order to do their own thing. Then corporations will have to ditch the Office Space like mentality in order to keep employees, instead of worrying about who to cut next.
