Are you a freelancer or an entrepreneur? There’s a Difference.

Writer or entrepreneur?

Artist or businessman?

There is a big difference. These questions are ones that I often think about.

Some people are amazing content creators. It doesn’t mean they should start content marketing agencies.

Some people are great at their craft, but they aren’t great at selling or managing people or invoicing or dealing with clients.

Some make fantastic freelancers, or solopreneurs, but they can’t necessarily create an organization bigger than themselves with employees.

They’re better off as one-person shows.

One has to have the self-awareness and the honesty to figure out what is right path for oneself.

So, what makes me think I can go from content writer/strategist to founder/CEO of a new marketing agency?

Over the past two years, I’ve proven to myself and others that I can fly solo very nicely.

Will I be able to grow it into something bigger?

We’re about to find out.

Call it chutzpah, call it foolishness, call it arrogance, but I’m trying. I’m starting. I’m DOING and not just talking.

I’m going for it.

And if I fail, then I fail forward and can always rely on my craft — writing ✍️ to support me. I can always go back to being a solo artist.

However, I’m behaving as if there is no other option.

I’m going full speed ahead as an entrepreneur. I refuse to be another statistic in the game.

Sure, there are a lot of players. Most of them don’t make it. But, as my mother always said:

“Cream rises to the top.”

I invite you to come along and follow me on my journey.
