Take the First Step Toward Controlling Your Career Destiny

man-walking-into-cloudsThe recent surge in the number of independent professionals in the US is evidence of a fundamental workplace shift. The traditional workplace structure, where employees work for the same employer for over 20 years, is disappearing. Do you understand the new norm? Can you learn how to successfully contract with multiple clients simultaneously on high-stakes projects that use your expert skills? This new “project economy” is creating opportunities for expert workers like you to find work success and control their own career destiny.

While the potential for success is clear, the path to achieve this success can be intimidating. MBO Partners President & CEO, Gene Zaino, a known national authority on how to provide executive knowledge services to the Fortune 1000, recently presented a webinar for ExecuNet members in which he demonstrated how to navigate the path to self-employment. Gene discussed the characteristics of successful self-employed professionals, pricing for services, marketing and business development, understanding the client side, and overall business structure.
