Karen Seymour: How this social media strategist is going from solopreneur to CEO


June 2, 2021

If you’re a service-based solopreneur bumping up against capacity, what might feel scary but necessary is to de-prioritize business-building activities like marketing and visibility for business-stabilizing activities like systems, process improvements, and building your team.

If onboarding two more clients in your business with the current structure you have now creates anxiety about servicing them with excellence, it’s time to look at your operations and team.

Karen Seymour was a solopreneur who started her digital marketing business four years ago. Over the past four years she’s gone from wondering how to get her next client to now bumping into a capacity challenge. This year, she’s deciding to put her clients first by focusing on business-stabilizing activities like systems, processes and team to better serve her current and future clients.
