May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favour

So, you decided to become a solopreneur?

By Enthusiast of ManyPublished 27 days ago 3 min read

So, you decided to become a solopreneur. Congratulations! You've officially joined the ranks, of crazy people who've decided that regular paychecks, company healthcare, and pizza days (thank you Amazon) are overrated. Welcome to the wild ride where our motto is: “May the odds be ever in your favour!”

Choosing the solopreneurial or entrenpneurial path is not for the faint of heart but with the right amount of delusion, confidence, and adaptability you will do well or at least laugh at the ridiculousness of it all.

The Solopreneur Survival Kit

Now, let me help you arm yourself against the haters (aka the odds) with this Survival Kit:

Knowledge is your secret weapon. Take in books, webinars, and podcasts like they’re going out of style. Today’s weird niche is tomorrow’s paycheck.

Surround yourself with other delusional (I mean brave) souls who also talk to themselves. Connect, collaborate, and seek mentorship. The right connections can open doors you didn't even know existed.

Collect failures like their infinity stones. Each one teaches you something new and gets you one step closer to success. Remember, it’s not about how many times you fall, just fall facing up so that you can get back up.

Learn to bend without breaking. Become as elastic as my favorite pair of underwear (don’t judge me, I’m a unemployed solopreneur). The market falls, your website crashes, and your bestseller is yesterday’s news. You are as strong as Jennifer Lopez’s belief in her singing abilities. Stay positive, but also, it’s okay to scream into a pillow sometimes.

Remember to log off and chill out. Your brain needs rest, and let's be honest, so does your social media. Plus, naps are scientifically proven to boost creativity. I think. Don’t quote me on that. I just really like naps.

Celebrate that new follower on Instagram. Got through a whole day without crying over code? Did a customer leave a review that wasn’t a complaint? Print it out and frame it. It’s these tiny wins that add up to a big deal, making the journey worth every unpredictable moment.

Let me share a snippet from my diary: "Dear Diary, today I spoke to another human. No sales. My online store crashed, and my newest product was a flop. But, I got in my protein today, so we’ll chalk that up as a win." These are the moments that might not make it into Inc. Magazine, but they're the meat and potatoes (or tofu and quinoa) of my business.

Luck is not random. It's often the result of hard work, persistence, and putting yourself in the right situations.

During our hustle, it’s easy to overlook the power of gratitude. Being thankful for the small things, like the freedom to manage your own schedule, can boost your morale. Gratitude not only shifts your focus from what’s going wrong to what’s going right. It’s like a magnet for good vibes and opportunities.

So here we are, at the end of our survival kit through the land of solopreneurship. If I could leave you with a few parting words, they’d be these: You are the craziest, stupidest, and bravest muthafuckers in the world and I’m proud of you!

In solopreneurship, you’re the ringmaster and the clown. It’s your show, your adventure, and your story to tell. May the odds be ever in your favour? Sure, but more importantly, may you find joy in proving everyone wrong who doubted you, one laugh, one leap, and one quirky victory at a time.
