With a one-person business, you are the owner and the employee, you are the creator and the seller.
In such a business, you do almost everything yourself and what you can’t do, you get help.
You can build by developing software and selling it on a self-serve model like Pieter Levels does with RemoteOk.
Or you can run a web design business with a small group of high-end clients who are a fan of your work.
Or you can choose to be a creator.
The magic is in the freedom that it offers, which is not there if you have a team to manage.
In such a business, when the right systems and tools are used, you,
- Live a chaos-free life
- Work when you want to
- Don’t have to manage a team
- Work in your zone of genius most of the time
- Keep all the money you make
And as a bonus, there is lots of satisfaction, and no meetings.
It may not be for those who want to build a corporation, a unicorn, or those who want to be on a magazine cover.
For others, it can be a good way to live the life they want.
Do you fancy running a business like this?
