Pam Slim has just published Escape from Cubicle Nation
based on her hugely popular blog of the same name. Pam’s work focuses on helping corporate employees start their own businesses. [Side note: I highly recommend this book if you are considering making the move]

In the first excerpt from our interview, Pam explains how she started the blog and gives insights into how she has successfully balanced the practical parts of her life with her passion for helping budding entrepreneurs.

    A clear, insightful and well articulated, seven and a half minute presentation/interview with Pamela Slim. I enjoyed this interview immensely. Pamela has a wonderfully grounded balance of practical and actually vitally useful resources, a lack of self promotion and lovely whimsey. Thank-you for this interview.
