Do you know those entrepreneurs who sent rockets in space, built billion-dollar startups from scratch and created thousands of jobs? Well, I am not one of them.
I am a company of one, with no employees and no fancy headquarters. I work from home and run a web publishing business. Simple as that.
Does that make me an entrepreneur? Maybe a solo entrepreneur? A solopreneur? You decide. I never liked putting labels on people. I only cared for results. And I have been making my living without having a boss since I dropped out of university.
Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won't, so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can't.
I first considered calling myself an entrepreneur when I incorporated my web business into the United States of America. Everything I create online is the property of my US company for legal and tax reasons.
I find managing a company exciting. From taking care of its financials and running it properly, to sending invoices with my logo and introducing myself as a founder! And as a founder and CEO of an LLC company based in the USA, I'm here to share what I once wished I knew.

Tools for every online entrepreneur or solopreneur
- Lastpass: As an online entrepreneur, I must have hundreds of accounts online. Remembering so many passwords is impossible, and obviously, I won't use the same password everywhere! LastPass not only remembers everything but saves me probably hours every day by auto-completing login details on tens of websites.
- Wise: I get paid in US dollars, Euros, and British Pounds from anywhere in the world.
- Revolut: Converting currencies with zero commission at interbank FX rates. Need I say more?
- NordVPN: Most people use VPNs for security and privacy reasons. But actually, a VPN can save you money!
- Google Apps: 24/7 email service. No more lost emails due to downtime.
- Upwork: Outsourcing and hiring freelancers that buy me time.
