This week on the Financial Fluency podcast, I'm excited to speak with one time accountant and accomplished IT consultant, Cat Lam.
Cat Lam is here as living proof that it doesn’t take anyone especially talented, brainy, or extra-special to go into business for themselves as an independent IT contractor or freelancer. There is way that you can use your current expertise, make a bunch more money, and have a whole lot more control over your own time and career.
This year marks her 12th year as an independent IT contractor / freelancer. She now call the shots. The day she became self-employed, and got that first contract, she instantly more than doubled her income, and was 100% accountable for her own career. Now, she assists others in finding their own way in that transition.
We speak about her career evolution, how she helps those starting out in IT consulting, especially women going through the negotiation process, and the value of developing multiple income streams, no matter your industry.
