Starting your own business can often be a major step. It is often associated with a great deal of uncertainty and risk.
For me, it felt like a natural ‘next step’ when I did exactly that - started my own business - 10 years ago.
I sensed some skepticism from those around me, probably because I had previously held well-paid executive positions, and a consultancy firm might not be everyone's dream job. But it was mine, and it still is.
