—Seth Godin, author of All Marketers Are Liars and Permission Marketing
“Going out on your own can be scary. But this book is a welcome antidote to that fear. It brims with savvy advice and nearly overflows with practical, hands-on exercises. Once you absorb the wisdom in these pages, you’ll be ready, willing, and eager to fashion a more rewarding work life. Michael Port is the guy to call if you’re tired of thinking small.”
