Lots of people I meet want to start their own business. "I know how to use R," they figure, "so I should be able to go out on my own, find clients, and work for myself."

The reality for many people is very different. They spend weeks on a business plan, website, and social media strategy. Then they sit down at their desk, waiting for the flood of clients. But the clients never come.

Since starting R for the Rest of Us in 2019, I've learned a lot of lessons along the way about (and how not) to run a business using R. In this talk, I'll share some of these lessons.

Whether you have dreams to start a huge business or want to freelance using R, this talk will help you get started with the next chapter of your career.
