Two former marketing and communications experts and employees from the corporate and small business worlds share strategies, specific steps and advice on how to take the leap from employee to solo/entrepreneurship in any industry. We’ll share how to turn the B2B experience into E2E (employee-to-entrepreneur)!

Interactive, informal discussion w/aid of a few slides, handouts, sharing lessons learned, real-life examples, humor and personal observations/opinions on making a successful leap, despite the many bumps and bruises gained along the way.
