It's hard to believe that June is over and we're all (hopefully) gearing up for vacations before fall begins again. I've just received the July issue of One-Person Library, and I also had the privilege of meeting Judy Siess at the Annual Business Meeting for the Solos Division. There are some truly amazing people involved in this division, and I'm grateful that I got to trade ideas, attend some of their sessions, and learn about things outside of my immediate business (publishing).
One of the amazing tracks that librarians can follow is to create their own consulting firm using the skills developed over the years, particularly if you're used to being a solo. You learn to manage, budget, prioritize, and handle all of the unexpected curves thrown at you with as much grace and style as you can muster. Has anyone else considered starting their own business? Do you find that you are more prepared for independent action since you became a solo?
