The professional consultant and coach most often acts as a solopreneur.
She is most often alone in the pursuit of dream.
She is typically overwhelmed by concerns about accounting and how much she must charge to make a profit, how her marketing is working (or not) and multiple other competing priorities.
She is alone in her business and her business practice, but she is not alone in her overall life.
She has a partner and/or friends. No woman is an island. She’s driven, but she has to make two decisions early:
How to pick a partner or friend
How much to tell that person about her solopreneurship.
The best practice is to be as honest as possible with intimate partners (and business partners are about as intimate as possible without taking off your clothes) and tell the other party, just how long it’s going to take to scale.
One less conversation to be had can make her life easier and less complicated.
