Today’s economic climate is such that many communication and marketing professionals find themselves going independent, whether by choice or force. In this instructive mini-series, Tina Barton interviews “indie” consultants—from relative newcomers to seasoned pros—who offer real-life lessons and practical takeaways to broaden your knowledge, boost your confidence, and show you the steps to success.
Deborah Hinton, partner at Hinton and Co (Montréal), and Sohini Bhattacharya, co-founder and managing partner of Allegoro Communications (Toronto), share the ups and downs of going “indie,” out-of-the-gate factors to have in place, the importance of planning for lean times (and your retirement!), and how else to set yourself up for success.
