Albuquerque, NM 87109

Marketing, time management, and other best practices for those who are in business by themselves, for themselves.

Are you already in business for yourself or thinking about taking the leap as a solo-entrepreneur?  If so, this workshop is for you!

Learn about successful best practices for this growing group of small business owners.  "Solopreneurs" experience a unique set of challenges and opportunities that other small business owners do not.  They wear the hats of chief and worker bee all at the same time.  They have tremendous independence but often exist in a lonely work environment.  They juggle demands for marketing and performing work, forming and managing productive teams -- all while not appearing too small to accomplish big things!

In this workshop, you will hear from a panel of successful solopreneurs who have met the challenges of being in business for themselves and who have developed strategies to help them thrive.  You will come away with information and real experiences about:

  • Time management
  • Solopreneur marketing
  • Instilling confidence that you aren’t too small
  • Networking and forming teams
  • Scale-ability
  • Outsourcing
  • Cash flow management
  • Accountability
