The Going Solo series profiles people who have quit the corporate world to go it alone as an entrepreneur or owner-operator of a small business.

After years of working corporate jobs, Matt MacKay and TJ Rule left their office buildings behind in late 2013 to take over Golf Away Tours – a Toronto-based boutique travel agency specializing in golf destinations across Europe, North America and the Caribbean. It's their first foray into entrepreneurship, and they both say the past year was one of the best they've ever had. Read more about their story here.

On Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 1 p.m. (ET), we will hold a live video chat with Mr. MacKay and Mr. Rule about what it takes to start a business. To view the Hangout, click on the YouTube box which will appear below.
