Freedom is essential to the Solopreneur. Liberty is essential to Humans flourishing, and, combined with responsibility, is the bedrock of Civilization.
Taking that statement for granted, in this instance we are merely investigating the autonomy available to an interested party, in the real world business environment.
A sound one person Franchise offers – usually - a proven business plan and back-office support that enables one to engage in commerce and reap the rewards that following that proven plan deliver.
The trade-off is a lack of freedom to call your own shots. One is locked into a restrictive formula that the Franchiser owns, and one must adhere to it.
This is perfectly OK, it works, and it suits a number of folk who simply want to go to work each day, performing mostly repetitive activities unsupervised, with the opportunity to earn above average income. Earning in direct proportion to effort. The harder they work the more income they produce.
One normally pays a generous upfront purchase fee for the privilege of being a franchisee, and ongoing monthly or yearly administrative charges are generally levied. This type of Solopreneur-ship opportunity is most common in the off-line world.
Maximum freedom is available when one is capable of and prepared to assemble everything required to establish a profitable business, online or off.
Maximum freedom equals maximum demand, in every aspect, on the would be Solopreneur. No need to go into details to get this point across. One can readily see that it is bordering on Entrepreneur territory and calls for the most resilient of mindsets.
Online, in between these two extremes exists a flock of compromises, offered by Host companies involved in the burgeoning e-business arena.
Online e-business Hosts generally offer services in a tiered structure. Ranging from free websites, where, as in the one person franchise example above, you are severely restricted in what you can do, to a premium service where the least restrictions exist.
As more tools or processes are required, it is necessary to move higher up the structure. Each move from a lower tier to a higher tier involves additional fees and charges.
Understanding tiered structures - what you can do, with what you get, for your money - should be a priority in your diligent research.
Other alternatives include subcontracting one’s talents and abilities to a related industry Company, or even another Individual.
