The bar has been raised.
Reading “The $100 Startup” by Chris Guillebeau has filled me with ideas about how to move forward with my work and life. From location independence to self-publishing to diversifying the ways I share my work and help clients, this book has sparked many new thoughts and reinforced the idea of limitless possibility. Chris talks about “solopreneurs,” individuals taking their ideas and expertise and working for themselves.
The distinction between a freelancer and a solopreneur is refreshing. It’s a transition from being a gun for hire to empowering myself to make my business a proactive extension of my interests and lifestyle. I’ll still pursue assignments from my clients, while also going directly to a worldwide audience online. With some new creative collaborations that I’ll be announcing this year, exciting times are ahead.
