Why Did You Go Solo?

Why Did You Go Solo?

During this week’s #solopr Twitter chat, we discussed some of the most important questions that face independent PR consultants, especially those just starting out. Read the transcript (in PDF) for answers from top Solo PR Pros to the following questions:

1. Are your taxes done? Any surprises?

2) How many years did it take before your business had an actual profit?

2a) How long did it take you to match what you made prior to going solo?

3) Why did you go solo in the first place?

4) What are your clients doing for Earth Day 4-22?

If you weren't able to make the chat, why did you go solo? Was it a financially profitable experience for you initially? If not, did the non-financial benefits make it worthwhile? Let us know in the comments!

The #solopr chat – held each Wednesday from 1-2 p.m. Eastern – is a weekly ritual for some of the most savvy Solo PR Pros on Twitter. Anyone with a Twitter account is welcome to participate – see Join Us for the #solopr Chat on Twitter to find out how!
