Getting sick of your daily commute? Wish you could spend more time getting things done and less time sitting in meetings? Do you find yourself looking longingly out your office window, day dreaming about going for a walk on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon? If this sounds like you, becoming your own boss might be for you.

I’m a fifteen year veteran in the tech industry and in 2017 I decided to start my own small business (with just one employee – me!) This talk will cover my first year as a consultant: how I went about setting my business up legally, how I found a simple way to keep my books, and how I found excited/exciting clients. I’ll be sharing some tools with you, so if you’re interested in becoming your own boss or starting a side hustle, this talk is for you.
