OK… here’s the deal: years in hi-tech (information security market, specifically) through the 90s. Moved away from the Bay Area in 2000 and still worked for hi tech companies for 2 years, tele-commuted 1 or 2 days in San Jose per week. Experienced in product management, marketing, business development and partner marketing. Then Sept 11 + bubble… so I started my own marketing firm (consultancy: mom and pop marketing), offering marketing advice, strategic work and design implementation work (websites, marketing collateral, logo, etc.) as well as network and IT consulting (why not… ). My wife joined me within 8 months and we’ve been doing this ever since. Today? Dwindling customer base, thinning projects, you get the idea… I am still going at it but may need to go back to working for someone else. How can I be attractive to an employer, in my mid 40’s, with experience in start ups and multinational, and my wife and I doing our thing for the past 7 years?
