Solopreneurship and loneliness

Solopreneurship is considered to have a nasty downside.

Not the fact that you carry all of the downside risk.

Not the fact that every decision (good or bad) is directly your fault.

But the belief that it is “lonely”.

But “alone” and “lonely” are not the same thing.

One means you’re by yourself. The other means you’re by yourself and you hate it.

If you find working alone lonely, either work on what it is about being alone that you struggle with, it don’t work alone.

But being able to work, think, build, and spend time with yourself is a skill.

A skill that benefits your alone time but also your time with others. It makes you sharper. It makes you clearer about what you want out of work and life, rather than merely going along with the status quo.
