Have you ever thought of starting your own communications consulting business? What about quitting your day job “working for the man” and becoming a marketing guru for hire? Many dream of starting their own business, but aren’t sure how to get started.

Join our group of panelists - Jennifer Roth; Sue Kraus, ABC; and Joe Zeigler - as they share their experiences of working as independent contractors in the marketing and communications field. Learn how they started their businesses and why, as well as the challenges and successes they’ve faced.

Each of our panelists brings a unique perspective on the ins and outs of working for yourself. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Michael Porter, APR, UST MBC program Director.

What you’ll learn from our panel:

  • Why and how they got started
  • The pros and cons they see to working for yourself
  • The varied aspects of running a business
  • What it takes to be successful
  • Pitfalls to watch out for
