The solopreneur

Upwork reported that 36% of the US workforce freelanced in 2020. The same report finds that 58% of traditional workers who started working remotely during the pandemic consider freelancing.

Experts predict that the majority of US workers will engage in independent work by 2023. Many of these workers will fall into the category "solopreneur", an independent worker who works alone.

  1. Draw your boundaries from the beginning and stick to them. This starts when you decide to take on a client and write your first proposal for them — get super clear on what you are doing and what success looks like so there aren’t any (or at least minimal) surprises. 
  2. Know your ideal workload
  3. Build replicable systems for your work. If you’re only ever taking on new clients you’re always having to create/adapt your systems to some extent and learn theirs. When you work with repeat clients you can be more efficient because you’ve done it before.
