108. Solo Startup Guidance: Nuggets of Wisdom from A Seasoned Serial Entrepreneur

  1. 108. Solo Startup Guidance: Nuggets of Wisdom from A Seasoned Serial Entrepreneur 36:40

We usually don’t start the episodes by listing off all of the accomplishments of our guests, but when you have somebody on who is this impressive and accomplished, it’s hard not to brag a little bit, especially when he has so much advice for solopreneurs. Mind you, this is us bragging on his behalf, he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who would do that.

If you aren’t familiar with Rob Walling, it’s time to get familiar. He:

  • Is a serial entrepreneur who has started six companies and has had multiple exits
  • He runs MicroConf, the largest conference for bootstrapped startups
  • He has written four books about startups
  • He has more than 15 million downloads on his podcast
  • He’s invested in more than 170 startups (including WP Engine and SparkToro), but doesn’t believe the only way to start a SaaS company is to raise money

And of course, he’s just a really cool guy and was open to all the questions we had for him that relate to helping you run a company of one.

In this episode, we discuss things like:

  • The key advantages to bootstrapping a startup versus seeking outside funding
  • Common pitfalls that aspiring solopreneurs encounter and how to avoid them
  • Strategies for solopreneurs to achieve profitability sooner rather than later
  • Trends shaping the future of solopreneurship
  • The most crucial skills or qualities that solopreneurs need to succeed in today’s competitive landscape

Plus the one piece of advice he would give aspiring soloprenuers, and so much more. Be sure to tune in.

Being a solopreneur is awesome but it’s not easy. It’s hard to get noticed. Most business advice is for bigger companies, and you’re all alone…until now. LifeStarr’s SoloSuite gives you free education, community, and tools to build a thriving one-person business.  So, if you are lacking direction, having a hard time generating leads, or are having trouble keeping up with everything you have to do, or even just lonely running a company of one, be sure to check out SoloSuite Starter!
