No Freedom without Independence

This weekend the U.S. will celebrate the July 4th holiday, and we'll all pause to appreciate the freedoms we often take for granted.

In fact, there is no freedom without independence, and those of us who’ve chosen to ply our public relations trade independently know this well. Exempt from external control and empowered to manage our futures without restraint, Solo PR Pros know the true meaning of freedom in our own lives.

So, let's take a moment to enjoy Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness on your own terms! If you aren’t independent yet, let this be an occasion where you develop a plan for your own declaration of independence.

Last year, I shared my favorite perks of freedom – what are yours?

  • FREEDOM #1 – Being able to do what I want to do when I want to do it (albeit with my BlackBerry in hand in case a client calls. LOL!). It's sooo nice to work by own schedule even if that's 11pm at night!
