Top Trends in Small Business - The Rise of the Solopreneur

Top Trends in Small Business - The Rise of the Solopreneur | Solo Pro World | 21st Century Business | Scoop.it

I thought I was probably onto something last year when I launched my new venture TheSelfEmployed, but little did I realize that the rise of the self-employed army would turn out to be a trend that is actually altering work itself. Whether it is Fortune magazine stating "Welcome to the age of the freelancer," small business expert Barry Moltz stating that "Micro startups are everywhere," or columnist Jan Norman noting that "almost 17 million Americans are now solopreneurs, 900,000 more than in 2011" there is no mistaking that there is a new class of independent, creative, take-charge small business solo entrepreneurs on the rise.
