Past Newsletters on Solopreneurship or Starting a Solo Business
Past editions of my weekly newsletter.
Each week I scour the Internet for the best resources on starting and running a solo business – resources and information that I find useful in my solo business.

All the articles below are transcripts from those past weekly newsletters.

For those of us who are Boomers, or late Generation-Xers, and who have good jobs with good companies, here’s something to keep in mind: The older we become, the more likely that it will be us, rather than our younger colleagues, who will be downsized when the cost-trimming starts.
