Being a Solo Entrepreneur

Being a Solo Entrepreneur

What’s it like being a solo entrepreneur? It means I wear every hat you can imagine! I do all of the bookkeeping, customer service, IT, design, product development, marketing, PR, and order fulfillment… all from my teeny tiny office!

Working out of such a small space means I have to be super-organized. Every product gets its own bin and sku number so that I can find stuff easily when running inventory or packaging orders. Thank goodness for IKEA and its modular shelving.

Aside from the administrative side of things, I also am the sole person making inventory! These merit badges for instance… while I use a production partner to manufacture the actual badges, each card they go on get individually hole punched (times 3!) by yours truly. Once the card is hole punched, I attach a pin and it’s ready to go!
