To help people get a better picture of what it means to be an entrepreneur in today's economy and to help them understand all of the different ways you can be more entrepreneurial in your career, I'm doing a series of interviews with everyday entrepreneurs called How They Do It. My first interview was with Melissa A. Rowe, a Philadelphia writer, educator and innovator.
In our interview, we talk about Melissa's journey into entrepeneurship, which began after she was laid off from two jobs in two years--something that is happening to a lot of people. She shares how she's turning her skills and talents into multiple income streams and how she uses her connections and ongoing professional development to build her business. She has some great advice and tips on new ways to think about your career.
I'll be posting more of these as we do the interviews. I'm really excited about having the chance to learn more about how people do it. If you know someone you think I should talk to, let me know. I'd love to meet more everyday entrepreneurs!
