Life as a self-sustaining behavior analytic entrepreneur is an experiential roller coaster ride. At times, you feel like your business is succeeding while other times you may feel like everything is crashing down. This panel brings that discussion into the public eye with three behavior analytic business women. They share their stories of what it is really like to live each day trying to make it on their own. In doing so, we forego technical discussions pertaining to how to start a business, write a business plan, or secure funding. Instead, we will discuss what it is like to "cut the cord" as an employee transitioning to self-employement, how to find your entrepreneurial passions, and best practices to help ensure that you will make it on your own. We will also discuss the role of entrepreneurship as a vehicle for furthering Skinner's original vision of a technology of behavior for the world.
