The Truth about Being a Solopreneur
The internet is full of blogs and podcasts to help us reach our potential as sole proprietors of metaphysical businesses. Most people will agree that having your own business and doing what you love each day is a great recipe for happiness.
It’s also a recipe for stress! There is so much uncertainty, so much you need to do, and very few resources at hand. Most solopreneurs need to handle virtually every aspect of their business themselves.
This can be a tough thing. If the healer were great at marketing, the healer wouldn’t be launching a healing center. Instead, the healer would be happily working as a marketer. What must the healer do, then?
The answer is clear. The healer must learn to market.
We become solopreneurs because we have a calling, and talent. But to be successful as solopreneurs we have to be willing to leave the comfort zone of our wheelhouse and expand our skill set, sometimes on the fly.
As a solopreneur, you must always be willing to learn something new, and to develop skills outside your comfort zone. What you will learn about yourself and your abilities will amaze you. The difficulty of learning to do things that exercise your weakest muscles will strengthen you.
As a solopreneur, there is no other path to success.
