If you scour around for great ideas from solopreneurs who are rocking in their businesses online, you’ll feel you’re in terrific company. When you read about other successful solopreneurs, though, don’t just skim over their stories – try and glean insights into what their thinking must have been like to get them where they are.

What money-making tricks can we learn from the richest solopreneur examples? Is there any common discernible pattern to ability, of the many disparate solopreneur examples, to make money fast and consistently?
I was trying to locate something common to most of these solopreneurs, and I’m glad I discovered what I was looking for. These solopreneur examples had all made at least over $100,000 in business, if not much more, but it was not in the business ideas or processes, but in their “money-making mindset” that I found the insights I have listed here.

If you think all those lovely solopreneur success stories are made up of very satisfied businesspeople living “happily ever after”, you need to look at the facts again.
Later-stage stumbling blocks can stymie growth, just when you think you’re cruising along and are unstoppable. A lot of solopreneurs who are 5-figure earners complain about not being able to enter the 6-figure club at all.

Solopreneur millionaires make for great case studies. They inspire us to dream of big things. They show us the value of staying with our aims and goals till we succeed spectacularly – and we can’t help but marvel at the way some of these solopreneur millionaires have latched onto seemingly quirky ideas to make those millions from.
But hidden inside their success stories, if we delve with a lot of sharp curiosity, we will find that their success has been built on a principle we too can try to follow. See what worked for them. See also what didn’t work for them – and how they converted that moment of distress into a pivot around which they built something more precious than before. [READ MORE]

As a solopreneur, I must admit that reading solopreneur books is my great addiction. For these reasons: one, it bucks up my adrenaline to hear the words of other success-driven solopreneurs; two, every book has a different perspective that opens my mind at least a few inches wider.
My tip for all who have come to this article would be to grab all these solopreneur books listed here – and then some more. Find best-sellers specially in the areas where you’re looking for improvement. Don’t just read the covers and the ‘contents” page. Buy the books. [READ MORE]
