When you want to start your own business, it's not just about finding your dream job. It can be an incredibly empowering and exciting experience, but first you've got to get through the fear of making a big decision. This can be tough for some people because there are so many unknowns involved, including how much money will you make, how long will it take you to get there, and how can you afford the things that you need along the way.

In today's episode of the Female CEO Club, Liz the host is joined by Clare Milsom, an award-winning producer working in the corporate communications and events industry. Having started her career as graphic designer in the late 90s. Claire has broken the mould of what it means to be successful in Creative Commons with her Northern, no nonsense and down to earth approach. Tired of being pigeonholed and restricted by the hierarchy. In 2008, she set up Ocuix and found the freedom to put into practice all the strings she has.

Clare talks about her journey to being a freelancer - saving up for years, doing some side projects and finally taking the plunge. She shares what inspired the decision, the biggest success and achievement, common myths about starting your own business and three pieces of advice for anyone who ever wondered what it would be like. Clare has done what most people only dream of - she quit her high-powered job and took the leap into self-employment.
