Taking that leap from the corporate world into entrepreneurship can be daunting, which is why it's so encouraging to hear about the hardworking and passionate entrepreneurs who do make it.
In this episode, I sit down and chat with marketing strategist, entrepreneur and Youpreneur member Roger Edwards as we talk about his entrepreneurial journey and how he's transitioned from corporate life to a booming consulting business.
Roger shares his experiences and talks about how he's had to overcome some hurdles with getting a pretty stuffy industry like finance to embrace technology and marketing online, and how he is continuing to do so today as a consultant.
