Inc. Magazine’s 3 Tips for Solopreneurs

1. Be Honest With Yourself

Some entrepreneurs need a partner to avoid loneliness, depression and inertia

2. Set up a board of outside advisers

You’ll need a sounding board to talk through big decisions, and employee’s can’t afford to be as candid as you’d like.

3. Be prepared to prove yourself

Many investors are skeptical of sole founders. To win them over, you’ll need to show that you are superhuman.
