In her most recent book, Entrepreneurial You, Dorie asks a great question: what does it take to create the career you want? I believe the current global pandemic and the massive labor shift from industries struggling with physical proximity (travel, tourism, restaurants, events, and conferences to name a few) are going to force more people to become more entrepreneurial, self-reliant, and adapt to a work-from-wherever-you-are economy.
That can be an incredibly liberating force, and many professionals dream of becoming independent, whether by starting their own businesses, becoming consultants or freelancers, or developing a sideline.
Dorie takes that dream and shows you how! You can begin by downloading her Recognized Expert Self-Evaluation Toolkit from her website.
