Allison O'Neill had spent years working at investment bank Lehman Brothers, and was used to having bosses and co-workers. When she started Bundle, a children's retail shop, in 2008, she quickly realized that solo entrepreneurship can be a lonely endeavor. To combat isolation, O'Neill joined networking and professional groups, and is now involved in an accelerator to boost her business to the next level. In this video interview, listen to her story, plus hear tips from experts.
