Between the traditional forty-plus-hour workweek and unemployment lies opportunity. If a rigid, corporate environment is consuming your life, but leaving the workforce is unrealistic, you have a third option! You can offer your skills and talents to companies on your own part-time schedule and create the work/life balance that’s best for you.
In The Third Option, Shannon Miles shares how she took a leap of faith to create a flexible career that gives meaning to both her work and her family, and she shows how you too can accomplish the same. Whether you want to be a contractor or freelancer–or change an existing position into a job that meets your needs as well as the company’s–you can work part-time virtually at home or a few days a week on site and still make a living. More importantly, you can live and work on your own terms.
