Soloing has two meanings: “going it alone” and being “complete in yourself.” . . . But you don’t just leave–a company/a career/a paycheck–and cross over to a more satisfying life. There’s more to it. There is a mysterious passage to be negotiated, a delicate transition required to go from alone-in-the-desert to complete-in-yourself.

Harriet Rubin, bestselling author of The Princessa: Machiavelli for Women, returns with inspiring advice for professionals dreaming of crossing over from a corporate world of prescribed boundaries to the limitless opportunities of soloing. She describes how people can do great things–things they would never be able to accomplish inside the corporate structure–when they manage or lead no one.

As one successfully navigates the passage toward a truer sense of self that Rubin describes, four invaluable freedoms await:

With insights as diverse as Henry David Thoreau’s “I want to be sure the world doesn’t change,” and Michael Jordan’s response to the statement: “There’s no ‘I’ in team,”–“That’s right, but there is an ‘I’ in win,”–Rubin gives readers the chance to bring their dreams into alignment with reality.
