It is just Kristine D’Arbelles and Clare Bonnyman this month. Clare is finished her internship in Thunder Bay and is back in Toronto. Anyone hiring? Clare is pretty awesome.

Taking a little break this month, we look back on some evergreen lessons and replay our episode on tips for entrepreneurs. At the end of the show, Kristine and Clare are surprised to learn some new lessons. We share them with the audience.

Some of the great advice you will find in this episode is:

  • Entrepreneurship is the best thing for your career and will make your resume stand out.
  • Technology has made consulting easy – build a worldwide clientele.
  • Build up a reputation for yourself – build your brand through social media and blogging. You don’t need to be an expert, just be out there.
  • Companies nowadays – mostly non-profits and small businesses – don’t have big budgets and look for freelancers and consultants all the time.
  • Find work through networking, RFPs or job boards.
