||Terri Zwierzynski - CFO (Chief
Freedom Officer), Solo-CEO, Consultant, Singer, MBA
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.

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

existence is possible -- one where it is possible for each
individual to do only the work they are passionate about

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

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!
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
