In her smash bestseller, Escape from Cubicle Nation, former corporate consultant Pamela Slim paved the way for thousands of corporate employees to transition from Dilbert-like existences to successful entrepreneurship.
In her newest book, Body of Work — what Robert Sutton has called “THE modern career handbook” — she brings us a step-by-step process for determining the personal legacy we leave at the end of our lives including all the tangible and intangible things we have created. In a sense, this is our life’s true mission and purpose.
In this interview, Pamela takes us through some of the important concepts and steps to get us on our way to tying it all together, as our…body of work.
Enjoy this hugely valuable chat with one of the wisest people I know, as well as one of my favorites, Pam Slim:
“Imagine yourself many years in the future, on the last day of your life, looking back at the things that you created, developed, nurtured, and contributed. What, ideally, would you like to see?”
Great question. What ideally would YOU like to see?
