But beyond the “why” of independence, there are many questions to consider:

  • What does independence actually look like?
  • Which costly mistakes do you need to avoid when making the transition?

  • Which entrepreneurial skills will you need to develop to succeed?
  • Can outsourcing help you create more time to serve your clients?
