A solopreneur can be defined as a few things:
Macmillian Dictionary refers to a solopreneur as someone “who works and runs their business alone.” While Urban Dictionary describes it as “An entrepreneur who works alone, ‘solo,’ running their business single-handedly. They might have contractors for hire, yet have full responsibility for the running of their business.”
However, I define a Solopreneur as a multi-talented entrepreneur that’s able to handle many tasks for their business by themselves. They like working with others, but can get the most accomplished working on things themselves. And they can often be found succeeding at running and maintaining multiple businesses.
3 Amazing Things About Being a Solopreneur
Being a Solopreneur can be fun and exciting, here are three of my favorite reasons about this title.
You are the Brand
You are essentially running the whole show. Unlike an entrepreneur who may want to hire employees so the branding has to represent company culture, the way you handle your clients/customers adds to your brand. Whether it’s for a blog, or the special details that go on your jewelry pieces, your personality shines through each item you produce.
Your Business is Your Baby
You have the option to start your business or hit the pause button and take a break from it all. However, most likely as a solopreneur we are willing to stick it out and see what happens. We generally view our business as a baby and try to nuture it, even during hard times.
You Wear Multiple Hats
The article “4 Differences Between Solopreneurs and Entrepreneurs” from Entrepreneur Media Inc. mentioned that solopreneurs are “worker[s] by nature.” And I find this to be very true, we don’t mind putting in the working and learning how to do things. Marketing, content writing, photo editing, modelling, you name it! If you are also a solopreneur, you enjoy the process of adding new skills to your list.
