When I started down the entrepreneurial path, one of the first books I turned to was Pamela Slim’s “Escape from Cubicle Nation.” I wasn’t necessarily escaping from a cubicle; rather, the book captured the spirit of adventure I was feeling and provided a roadmap for action in those early days.
While Pamela is a self-proclaimed extrovert, she has insights and wisdom that will give even the most introverted among us food for thought. Pamela is an award-winning author, business coach and speaker. In 2005, she started the Escape from Cubicle Nation blog, which is now one of the top career and business blogs on the web.
Pamela’s first book, “Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur” was released in Spring, 2009 and won Best Small Business/Entrepreneur Book of 2009 by 800 CEO Read. Her new book, “Body of Work,” gives a fresh perspective on the skills required in the new world of work for people in all work modes, from corporate to non-profit to small business.
In our wide-ranging conversation, we discuss what we introverts need to know about our essential selves and social selves; how a niche leads to sustainability; how to ask for support; and what we can do if we suffer from success dysmorphia.
