For more and more people, running a freelance or solo business is living the dream. It's the freedom to create what you wish, how you wish, on your own terms and schedule.
But it’s not all unicorns and rainbows.
It can be tough to find the right advice and support you need to keep going in the right direction. And despite the many perks, a solo business can get lonely — even downright isolating at times.
Fortunately, it’s possible to connect with like-minded people who are on a path similar to yours. Plus, you can gain insight into the essential strategies, tactics, and technology that helps your business survive and thrive.
Never Have a J.O.B. Again
When freelancers and entrepreneurs talk about being “unemployable,” it doesn’t mean they can’t get a job. It means they would never trade the freedom and creative satisfaction of running their own business to even consider traditional employment.
Of course, the key is to never be in a position where taking a job becomes a necessity. Your hard work is a big part of that, but it’s not enough.
Fortunately, you don’t have to go it alone to run a successful company of one. That’s where the Unemployable Initiative comes in.
We’re a collection of solo/small business owners who educate, support, and hold each other accountable to ensure that working for someone else never has to be an option.
The Three C’s of Solo Business Success
Success as a solo is not about being alone. It's about a single person or small team assembling various resources in pursuit of a creative vision, and then making it happen.
At one point, we all thought social media would provide us with those resources. Now, the distraction of platforms controlled by tech giants looking to make you the product has made social media a place to avoid rather than embrace.
The Unemployable Initiative is the antidote to vast and toxic social media sites. Our freelance and solopreneur members embrace a smaller and more intimate digital space that provides a meaningful experience that enhances their business and lives.
It's a place where you can interact with like-minded peers and truly be yourself, all while gaining the coaching, connection, and community you need to succeed.
Discover the strategies, tactics, and technology that help your business survive and thrive.
Connect with like-minded peers, build your expert network, find partners and new customers.
Belong to a true community that supports you, holds you accountable, and gets you.

I am relatively new to the field, but having learned so much from Brian Clark and the team at Copyblogger and Unemployable, I was excited to become a part of any group he created!
