This is not a story, it is a real feeling that I just want to share. As a Solo Founder I sometimes feel like there is something I am never able to say to anyone.
But I think these things will be very important as I want to document a journey of leantale. So you might have noticed that I keep sharing things related to Lantale on my WhatsApp too.
Working alone is quite different from the team of three CO founders and some interns (previously failed startups).
But before starting this article, I want to tell you that there is nothing like that. I don’t have friends or family.
I have all of them and I am grateful for that.
Today I have only one aim to share this article: that other Solo founders like me also came to know that they are not alone in this journey and this is not only something that happens with them only.
1st Issue: Disconnected from the world
As a Single Founder, the biggest problem I have faced is that you remain disconnected from the world.
All the time your mind keeps on thinking about things related to your startup so that you are not able to enjoy the things that are close to you.
2. Every Responsibility and Every Failure is Yours.
3. Not Motivated Enough to Do Work
You cannot work by being motivated all the time, at some time you will feel so low that your mind will say leave everything and go back to your old routine.
4. Sometimes you will not understand what to do and how to do it
Not everyone is so lucky that they get a mentor or they get a blueprint and after following it you will become successful. Sometimes you have to do as much as you know further road will be visible when you reach there.
5. No work timing
When you work full time as a solo founder every work requires your time so you don’t have any specific time. Sometimes you have to work till 4 o’clock in the morning, sometimes you wake up in 4’ o clock.
6. Taunts will also be seen in the suggestions of people
This is the most common way people start giving their advice without knowing the full story like you have to do this and that and as a solo founder you can’t share these kinds of things with anyone.
You may find these problems very small but it is not easy to handle everything from planning strategies to scale your business but you know there is one good thing about these days. In this loneliness you will find yourself at the end.
