The biggest challenges as a solopreneur

The biggest challenges as a solopreneur

Working for yourself and on your own seems like a dream come true. You can manage and grow your business the way you see fit. No one can talk you into it and you don't have to worry about employee management.

In the United States, such solo self-employed people are often referred to as "solopreneurs". The word is a combination of the two terms "solo" and "entrepreneur". It refers to a person who acts in an entrepreneurial manner, i.e. recognizes and courageously seizes opportunities - and does so alone and without a team. The term is closely related to the Lean Startup idea, which is about shortening planning processes: just do it and go to market as quickly as possible, get feedback and learn from it.
