Look Before You Leap Survey Now Available

Life Strategies Ltd. is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) for the Look Before You Leap: Supporting Career Practitioners to Support Clients Considering Self-Employment project.

Self-employment is a growing trend in a variety of sectors; it’s also increasingly an option for career practitioners / career counsellors. Yet, most career practitioners have little understanding of self-employment or work as an independent contractor. The Look Before You Leap project will develop and pilot a 2 week (20 hour) facilitated e-learning course which focuses on self employment and a book, Look Before You Leap: Self-Employment Survival Strategies, which will be useful for those considering self-employment. A dedicated “Look Before You Leap” website with annotated links to relevant resources for the self-employed and a Blog that will share relevant self-employment tips and strategies will also be developed.

We Need Your Input
To inform the development of these tools, we are seeking insights and experiences from the self-employed through a brief survey available from January 5th until January 12th. To access the survey go to www.advancedsurvey.com, enter in survey # 72694 within the “Take A Survey” box, and press “Go.”

Please forward this message to any of your contacts who may be interested in this project and/or can complete the survey.
