Pamela Slim is releasing her Escape Workshop in a Box today. That’s a very interesting productized version of Pam’s one-day workshop based on her best-selling Escape From Cubicle Nation book.

I’m proud to be part of this project. I connected with Pam as I got started in social media because she’s a gifted writer. When I heard she was doing one of these workshops in Portland, Ore., near where I live, I volunteered to join her and do the business plan section that day in the afternoon. And I’m glad that a recording of that session is included in the product.

The escape is all about empowering people to go out on their own. How, why, what to focus on and how to make it work. She gives real, practical advice to real people. Take it step-by-step.

The whole project is fascinating to me. Take a very successful workshop and make it available to all of those who haven’t been able to attend the various workshops that have been given–all to very full rooms over the last year or so. It’s downloadable, so it can be viewed on attendees’ own time, and kept to be referred back to.

I hope Pam’s new product is very successful. If you’re interested in what it takes to go on your own, this is for you.
