" a symphony of collaborative independent efforts." — I think this phrase best captures the heart of this piece. I love how one can maintain their independence while collaborating with others. Would you say it's similar to outsourcing those tasks that you think others can handle better?

I also had another question.

Do you think one should dive straight into solopreneur-ship or should one get some corporate experience before taking the plunge?

Ishan, I think it goes one step beyond outsourcing, which can be handing off tasks you don't want to do, or aren't capable of doing. Rather, it's building a virtual team of collaborators that you can rely on. They become your independent partners, and buy in to your vision.

And great question, which I'll address in a future issue -- thanks. For now: It comes down to specific situations and personal responsibilities. There's no one-size-fits-all approach. But in the n/l issue, I'll post some questions that would-be solopreneurs can ask themselves. Again, thanks for the question.
