Going It Alone and Making It Work

You can graduate from college and get a "real job." But after a couple of years, are you really happy?

Have you thought about pursuing your passion? That's what Emiko Abe did when she went after her love of music.
But going it alone as a self-employed DJ and music consultant was a bit more difficult than she expected.
