Team Solo-E


TerriFacebook

Terri Zwierzynski – CFO (Chief Freedom Officer), Solo-CEO, Consultant, Singer, MBA (UNC-Chapel Hill)
After 15 years of employment with large and small technology companies, Terri became a corporate refugee in 2001. A non-conformist at heart, she is now a business strategist and marketing consultant to solo entrepreneurs, and a grassroots promoter of the solo entrepreneur lifestyle. She has grown Solo-E.com from a few hundred subscribers into a site that attracts thousands of solo home business owners monthly from over 100 countries on six continents.

Terri’s passion for solo entrepreneurship stems from her conviction that everyone has unique talents to contribute to the world, and should be able to do that while maintaining their personal integrity and their lifestyle. As a wife, mother of two children, and owner of two dogs, she cherishes her ability to decide when to work, when to walk the dogs and when to chaperone a field trip. As a business owner, she relishes the freedom of doing work she enjoys, on her schedule, for clients she likes and respects.

Solo-E Vision

We envision a vast, worldwide network of ordinary, remarkable, passionate, lifestyle-inspired Solo Entrepreneurs with extraordinary ideas — dreaming, learning, connecting and delivering their authentic contribution to the world — together, through Solo-E.com.

Humankind is transforming

Humankind has its roots in an an existence where everyone functioned locally, fending for themselves– growing their own food, building their own shelters, making their own clothes and weathering their own storms. The harmonious design of the universe promises that transformation toward a different existence is possible — one where it is possible for each individual to do only the work they are passionate about - in a peaceful environment that is in harmony with their lifestyle.

Enabling this transformation, civilization has brought us democracy, where a free and open marketplace can flourish. Technological advancements have contributed the Internet (and other technologies yet to be discovered) that extend that marketplace to individuals, allowing the buying and selling of the fruits of individual talents, regardless of location. And the universe itself ensures that the right balance of talents is available, so that among all humans, buyers and sellers exist in equilibrium.

The opportunity for Solo Entrepreneurs

Solo Entrepreneurs, those who wish to express their talents within a solo business structure, benefit especially from this transformation. With the feasibility of reaching large numbers of perfect customers, and unlimited sources of knowledge
on how to run their business, it will be possible for Solo Entrepreneurs everywhere to lead empowered, peaceful, fully-expressed lives.

Solo-E.com aims to create a no-hype environment where Solo Entrepreneurs everywhere can find solutions to the unique challenges of running a solo business: discovering their unique talents, marketing with integrity to their perfect customers, and operating a sustainable business without employees — all while honoring their chosen lifestyle. We celebrate Solo Entrepreneurship and the remarkable individuals who make it happen!

 

Future Vision

Solo Entrepreneurs everywhere as shining examples to the world of how individuals can offer a powerful contribution to society without the confines of a big business. Working for yourself is an achievable, desirable goal – on par with (or better than!) “having a paycheck”.

 

Our Ten Most Important Business Principles

  • Discover what you are uniquely talented for and passionate about doing.
  • Do only what you enjoy; delegate or refer everything else.
  • Mistakes are just learning opportunities in disguise; our challenge is to unmask them. If you aren’t making mistakes, you aren’t taking enough risks.
  • You can’t be successful alone. Find and embrace others who share your integrity and figure out how you can help each other. Ask for help, and be generous in sharing your learning with others.
  • Operate with a “give to get” mentality. Do for others, share with others, and it will come back to you ten-fold. Forget competition and instead look for ways to collaborate.
  • Work with whom you want, when you want, and charge what you are worth.
  • It is ultimately more profitable to market and run your business with integrity.
  • Say yes to things you really want to do – and be good at saying NO to everything else.
  • Being a Solo Entrepreneur is a fun, all-consuming, joyful existence!
