Escape from Cubicle Nation argues that corporate environments are full of unfulfilled people whose lives would be better if they were entrepreneurs. However, these individuals have not yet made their escape because they do not know how to successfully make the transition. The book helps people to identify the options, evaluate the risks and prepare themselves for the transition. It draws inspiration from readers of the popular blog of the same name (EscapeFromCubicleNation.com), and from experiences of the coaching clients of the author. Many of the stories are inspirational, and tie back to key principles such as doing what you love and clearly defining your brand.
Pamela Slim, the author, has completed the escape herself and coached others through the process as well. She is a former corporate trainer who now owns a thriving coaching business, and is considered an expert in entrepreneurship transitions. She introduces the concept of shifting in four steps which are separated as main sections of the book: Opening Up to the Opportunities, The Reality of Entrepreneurship, Make the Money Work and Making the Leap. The text provides those looking to shift from a corporate environment to being an entrepreneur with a guiding north star.
