It's Time to Fly!,
Rosemary E. Rys, Making Bread
"When my company downsized me in January 2001, it was exciting at first--a jump-start into action, I thought," writes Rosemary E. Rys in
a financial-advice magazine especially for women. Rys had been waiting for the incentive to finally start her own public relations firm, but she soon learned firsthand that striking out on your own takes time, effort, and thought. She offers the advice culled from her experience to others who are suddenly unemployed or are ready to make the switch from being employees to being their own bosses.
