How is Solopreneur different from Entrepreneur?

A solopreneur is someone who runs their business alone and is ultimately responsible for its success or failure. Entrepreneurs turn to employees to help grow and expand their business over time, while a solopreneur will continue to run things themselves and instead may outsource providers and engage with freelancers for help. Typically, entrepreneurs seek to grow their business to eventually sell it to a bigger brand or business, but a solopreneur wants to keep their business their own.

Pros and Cons

Any new thing that you start, has both pros and cons in its way. A solopreneur maintains complete control of their business at all times. You’re not necessarily looking to grow a business that expands worldwide or transforms into a global empire, you want to grow your business but remain in control of your venture. The benefit? You get to keep most, if not all, of the money your business makes.

On the other hand, it can also be easy to lose inspiration and get overwhelmed by the mountain of tasks that come with running a small business. You have limited outside perspective and no co-workers around you to brainstorm or collaborate with, but it just means you’ll need to look beyond your business to find help.
