Escape from Cubicle Nation – The Book

by Marc ~ March 18, 2009

Ever since my exit from the corporate world I’ve enjoyed reading Pam Slim’s posts at the Escape from Cubicle Nation blog.  Her mission, as a coach and blogger, is to teach people how to “go from corporate prisoner to thriving entrepreneur”.

It may seems strange to some that I’d talk about escaping from cubicles on a site where we are trying to get people out of their homes and back into offices.  However, it doesn’t take much to work out that the problem is not the office itself – it’s what goes on inside those corporate offices that is the problem for many of us.

Coworking, to the unitiated, seems like it’s all about the office.  However, if you spend any time reading the posts in the Coworking Google Group or on the websites of any of the leading coworking spaces, and you’ll find it’s much more about the communities they create – it just happens that some communities work better when sharing a workspace, and coworking provides that for them.

Back to Escape from Cubicle Nation.  Pam is releasing a book next month and has provided Chapter 1 for free download from her site.  Here is a direct link to the download.  Anyone who is currently thinking about leaving a corporate job, or those that have done so and need the odd reminder why they did it and whether they made the right decision, should take a few minutes to read this great opening to her book.
