What makes a SoloPreneur is not the lack of employees. Some companies without employees contract everything from sales, to production, to answering their phone. They are functionally equivalent to one of the other groups because the management frustrations you face are more like those with employees (even though legally and technically you don’t have employees).
What makes a true solopreneur, are the following traits:
- The number of customers you can serve is limited by the number of hours you work
- You don’t need others to provide value to your customers
- Your customers pay you for your skill or experience, for the expertise or wisdom you possess in a certain domain. This is true even if what they purchase is a product (like artwork).
- And , obviously, no employees.
Examples of true solopreneurs: Artists (graphic and fine), consultants, plumbers and other trades people, dog walkers, coaches, piano teachers, wedding planners.
