Terri Zwierzynski, MBA (UNC-Chapel Hill) became a corporate
refugee in 2001, after 15 years of employment with large and small technology
companies including GE, AT&T Bell Labs, and Nortel. After her initial shock
at being unemployed, she vowed to “never work for an idiot again!”
A non-conformist at heart, Terri Z is now
The Solo-CEO: a self-employed internet marketing consultant to solo entrepreneurs and a grassroots promoter of the "solo entrepreneur lifestyle". She runs www.Solo-E.com, the resource website for solo entrepreneurs
which attracts thousands of visitors monthly from over 100 countries on
six continents (and was named a finalist for “Website of the Year” in
the 4th Annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business).
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 for clients she likes and respects.
