open-signHello everyone, and welcome back to the PM for the Masses Podcast!

This week I have a laid back, friendly chat with my buddy Francis Hooke.  Francis is a fairly young guy who left a nice job at a large bank to start his own business providing project management and business services to small businesses.

Today I ask him about his career, and how/why he decided to venture out and start something of his own.

My conversation with him is a nice follow up to episode 20 with Farnoosh Brock. If you ever thought about leaving your job and starting your own company, you will learn a lot from Francis’ experience.
