Being a founder or a solopreneur often means wearing several hats at once. We’ve all heard about it yet when we experience it for the first time it can be all-consuming and overwhelming. Suddenly you are completely on your own. I know, right – what did we expect? The thing is, while we might have prepared for the business journey, we’re rarely sufficiently prepared for the mental and emotional experience of working in isolation.

The lack of connection and support as a solopreneur is palpable – no one to give you feedback, to tease out the wild and wonderful ideas from the crazy and stupid ones, or even to discuss the latest Covid Pandemonium. So there you are, styling it out like a boss keeping all your ideas, opinions, worries and fears in your head. It doesn’t take long for self-doubt to creep in. The most important, critical, life-changing decisions fall to you alone. The various options and outcomes bounce around in your head for days or even weeks while you deal with analysis paralysis. Is it any wonder why so many entrepreneurs struggle to take flight.

This is where Ireland Together comes into its own. Community brings connection and energy back into your life – the simple joy of being around other people who can offer a sounding board, an extra pair of eyes, or a source of knowledge. Working alone throughout a pandemic means no staff lunches, business dinners, conferences, tradeshows or celebrations. With typical social outlets out of the picture we need to invite serendipity and connection into our lives – simply turn up at an event and you will encounter the warm embrace of people exactly like you, ready and willing to collaborate. A rising tide carries all ships afterall.

At some point you will likely reach a point where you need expert insight, feedback and guidance about your enterprise from someone else. That person should be someone who isn’t emotionally invested in your product or service the way that you are; a fresh voice to give you perspective and to help quieten the competing voices in your head arguing about the best way to move forward. You will find that person at Ireland Together – we’ll make sure of it.

As for the many hats solopreneurs wear everyday – well there’s an app for that – and many of them are free. Maybe you have some to add? We’d love to hear from you.
