159: Turn Your Job Into a Business with Bobbi Linkemer

Listen to the interview here:


Bobbi Linkemer on how to turn your job into a business and make it last for 25 years.

Bobbi Linkemer didn’t care much for working in corporate. When she was fired from her job in the 1980’s, as she was looking for another, she found out that people wanted to hire her directly as a freelancer. A business was born. But it didn’t last all this time by luck. Bobbie explains how she started a successful business long before the Internet, podcasts or social media on this episode of the How to Quit Working Show.
