The Third Option

All too often, we are forced to choose between the traditional forty-plus-hour workweek and unemployment. Yet, tremendous opportunity lies in the middle, in The Third Option. If a rigid, corporate environment is consuming your life, or you’ve left the workforce and miss being a professional, you can craft your own Third Option. You will need to dream bigger, decide to make a change, and do something about it!
