Some entrepreneurs, whether by choice, or by circumstance, work alone.
They undertake their projects and ventures without the support of others.
This may be just because they prefer it this way or perhaps the type of business model they use.
It could also be that they simply do not have like-minded people around them.
But the number of Lone Wolf Entrepreneurs is growing.
In the world we find ourselves living in, this trend is not going away.
The ability to earn money online and work remotely is becoming very important.
What Exactly Is A Lone Wolf Entrepreneur?
Although I touched upon this briefly in the introduction, let me elaborate a little more.
A Lone Wolf Entrepreneur is simply someone who works alone to achieve their entrepreneurial goals.
They also find great success and debunk the widely accepted notion that you need networks and teams to be successful.
Some lone wolves may interact with other entrepreneurs online to collaborate on aspects of their projects.
Perhaps they may hire another entrepreneur to design a logo for them, or even take some training from them.
This is not the same as being full-time partners or team members.
If someone decorates your living room, does that mean they are a member of the household?
Of course not!
Most Lone Wolf Entrepreneurs work online.
In fact, it is my personal definition of a lone wolf, and the aim of this site and my book.
To encourage people to set up their own online infrastructures to create their own incomes.
This is not to say that people who work on their offline ventures alone are not Lone Wolf Entrepreneurs.
They are, but the concept I promote is online-based.
At least primarily.
Are YOU a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur?
Below I will list some of the types of entrepreneurs that I class as lone wolf.
Most YouTubers work alone.
They create content alone and do all the work that is required, usually with no outside help.
Editing and promotion is done alone.
Any comments and questions on videos or social media are all their responsibility to take care of.
Solo online sellers.
There are a lot of people who run small online stores on places such as Etsy, Shopify, and eBay.
Product creation, sourcing, listing, promotion, and shipping are all done alone.
Self-published authors are often Lone Wolf Entrepreneurs.
They create their own work, sometimes covers, and do all their own promotion.
No publishing house backing them or teams of marketers promoting their books.
Some may hire freelancers to do cover art or perhaps even some promotional campaigns.
But hiring someone for a one-off freelance job is not the same as being part of a team.
After all, do they get royalties from the sales, or do they have to help with any other aspects?
No, it all falls on the author.
Although some bloggers work as part of a team for one site, a significant number work alone.
Content creation, website maintenance, and promotion, all falls on them.
Running a blog can be a serious workload, but yet, many manage to do it completely alone.
In my experience, affiliate marketers rarely work as part of a team.
They are almost always found working alone.
Similar to bloggers, all aspects of their online ventures fall on their shoulders.
I’m sure you can think of other examples of Lone Wolf Entrepreneurs, but I’m sure you get my point.
Being A Lone Wolf Entrepreneur Can Be Daunting.
Most offline business ventures take a lot of hard work.
Online ventures are no different.
To be successful takes a variety of traits, as well as planning, a well thought out infrastructure, and of course, the correct mindset.
Skills can be learned, but applying them correctly, and consistently, really relies on character traits and mindset.
You can have an amazing plan and set of skills.
It will make no difference if you do not apply them consistently, or give up because results are slow to appear.
You have to have an obsession to succeed and a firm belief in yourself.
The Lone Wolf Entrepreneur is a handbook that describes the traits, skills, and mindset, that a person needs if they are aiming to be a Lone Wolf Entrepreneur.
The course also contains a basic step-by-step guide to setting up an online business.

Having the correct mindset is essential to any aspect of life, but positivity and wishes cannot replace hard work.
Many people today have got into the rut of thinking that, so long as they “wish” hard enough, their venture will succeed.
In this article, we will look at the importance of having a positive mindset alongside a solid plan and hard work.
