9 to 5 work rebels – a site dedicated to those seeking to escape the monotonous 9-5 life and live life on their terms. Founded by Ebony Gayle, author of the no-nonsense self-help book  –  How To Become A Consultant: A Guide To Free Yourself From The 9-5’.

Ebony believes going it alone doesn’t need to be high risk and you don’t have to come up with a ground-breaking idea. Becoming a consultant can be a simple way to create the life you want by selling what you already do well, on terms that suit you.

Ebony felt trapped and depressed in her 9-5 job and started her own consultancy with just £100. Five years on, she enjoys a rewarding career, financial success, work-life balance and most importantly, finally feels happy at work.

Ebony is on a mission to share her insights and experience with other people seeking to escape the rat race. She takes you through the steps you need to take to become a consultant and explores other avenues for the 9-5 freedom seekers, including online businesses.
