Escape from Cubicle Nation Podcast
Advice, support and encouragement to stop being a corporate prisoner and start your own business
Use classes and workshops to get stuff done

Most small business owners have big plans to develop new services, re-invigorate marketing efforts or enhance online offerings.  But if you are working alone, sometimes the tasks seem overwhelming.

Participating in a group class or workshop can be a great way to:

  1. Develop a supportive network of peers that can provide insight, encouragement and motivation for your project
  2. Get expert advice from your instructor which can ensure you don't make costly misakes and do things right the first time
  3. Build in some accountability to get things done, since you have specific assignments and deadlines

Personally, I am hopeless without a deadline, so the final point is of particular importance.

Some resources mentioned in the podcast:

  1. Google your topic of interest, + teleclass or workshop
  2. Coachville's
  3. Classes at

If you want to share your own experiences as a participant or know of good classes or directories of classes for small business owners, let me know at
