Why there is a rise of new professional or solo entrepreneur on the Internet
Because the time has changed; from industrialization of the 19th century to the digital age or the internet of the 20th century. During the industrial revolution of the 19th century, the manufacturing industries and factories are growing rapidly, and jobs are created. Many left the farm and their village to become workers in big cities. They live in the city to work. Jobs are created with ranks from worker to CEO. In the digital era of the 20th century, people use the Internet and technology to create jobs for themselves. They prefer the freedom to work from home without a boss and fixed working hours. With the concept of financial freedom and the encouragement to be an entrepreneur echoed by Robert T Kiyosaki, many wish to be a solo entrepreneur and to create a job or a business for themselves from home.
Traditional education in the industrialization age was designed to prepare someone for the workplace. They are not ready to educate a person to become an entrepreneur. In the digital era, a new professional is born, and people become independent, dependent upon themselves to work and to create a job or a business that they love doing it. The new professionals such as virtual workers, virtual assistants, business or life coaches or consultants offer their service and solution tailored to the need of each of their customer. It is getting easier to write and to publish an electronic book at Amazon Kindle and other online publisher platforms. Everyone can create information products and sell them online.
How did they create a new profession?
They created a new profession based on their life experiences, values, skills, interests or hobbies. I created a free training of video series because I had fear and tried to procrastinate things that I feared to do. Creating videos is challenging. I often meet people who wish to build their own business on the Internet, but they have the fear of doing it, and they become demotivated easily. The new professionals are using Internet and social media online to promote their business or career. The location of their business is their website, and they build their online presence on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. They are using webinar or online seminar; they created videos and have their own TV channel via YouTube or other video channels.
The new professional in digital era is a profession which they choose according to what they love doing it and their purpose in life, so they have endless spirit and creativity. The new professional in digital era is unique, because each person is different. They have personality, different interests, so there is no competition because they create a career or business based on what they have, so there is a term of You Inc. Marketing strategy is not about the product or service, but it is rather on personal branding. The new professional as a solo entrepreneur on the Internet is very promising because there is no competition or rivalry, and you are the creator of your own career or business.
