Every year, GPSEG members choose to pivot their professional lives. Self-employment becomes their new career path of choice. And every year, the Professional Services sub-group plays a role in their journey.
We kick off the year by exploring the components of Phase #1 - what it takes to launch a new (or repurposed) firm.
