SHS #116: How To Be a Solopreneur in 2024

Reading time: 3 minutes

Hi friend,

Half of this year has already passed. How are you doing with your goals so far?

Anyhoo, I'm not here for some fluff motivation because if you didn't achieve some stuff - it's okay.

Not everything is supposed to work according to the plan. That's just life.

Our sponsor for this week:

Financial Literacy by Madhav Pangarkar

Madhav is a Summit 21 alum and was a wonderful student. He is also a financial advisor who started a free newsletter to help you make better financial decisions. Check out his newsletter here.

So let's get started on today's issue which is about how you can start your solopreneurship journey.

1/ Speak about the problem

Listen, people won't pay you because you want money. Because who doesn't?! You get paid for the value you bring to the table. That happens when you solve a problem.


  • identify a problem
  • talk about it
  • agitate the problem

This way you'll have an audience who experiences that issue, resonates, and interacts with it.

2/ Create a solution

When you see that your audience experiences a particular problem, for example - they don't know how to increase sales for their SaaS product (it needs to be specific) - propose a solution.

Now create a solution in terms of your product (digital products like ebooks, etc) or service (freelancing).

3/ Test your solution

This is where you do it for free for a bit so you can

  • see if it really works
  • take feedback and improve
  • get social proof (testimonials)

4/ Improve

You won't create a perfect product for sure, so this is where you improve your solution.

And improve it with time even after you launch.

5/ Launch

Launch your solution using tools like Gumroad. It's free and is super easy to use.

Lastly - start now, and you'll figure out the journey with time. I know it's scary but what matters is that you just start.

All the best!

Niharikaa Kaur Sodhi June 14, 2024 SHS #113: I Lost $5391+ With This Mistake Reading time: 5 minutes ↓ Dear reader, you should know this. You should know this because most online content tells you about wins to be ideal, inspirational, and whatnot. Because then you'll buy something. But I owe it to you to be real and to always show you both sides of the coin. I've learnt from others' mistakes and wins so I must give back and discuss my wins... but also my failures so you can learn from them....
