A Writer. A Blogger. A Solopreneur.
Quit My Job to Take Care of My Children
I was born in a northern city in Vietnam and grew up as an ordinary person. I meant I went to university at 18, got a job at 22, got married at 25, had my first child at 27, bought a car at 29, and had an apartment at 31. No breakthroughs. Nothing special. Though I was not satisfied with it, it was not too bad for me to break the norm and escape from it until 2019.
In May 2019, I had my second child. At that time, I was working at a foreign logistics company for about 12 hours a day. It was challenging for me and my husband raising our kids while working full time without help. Traveling back and forth, getting tired of it, being angry most of the time, I couldn’t handle it enough.
For the first time, I thought considerably about my family’s future. I know deep down that I wanted a different life. A life in which I have enough time for my own and my family, doing what I love, and with whom I care about. Finally, I decided to quit my job to start a freelance business in Mar 2021.
Start the Solopreneur Journey as an Introvert
I started The Introvert Writer as my personal site for personal development. It was the first time I did something meaningful after many years of living without purpose. I enjoyed my free time learning, writing, and connecting with others. I burst into tears when getting my first income from a Vietnamese magazine.
One thing you need to know about me is I am an extreme introvert. I don’t like crowded places. I am not good at building relationships or showing up (both online and offline). I don’t enjoy talking much about myself and to strangers. Everyone told me that I was antisocial. These facts were somehow a greatest obstacle I must overcome to build a solo business.
But I still have faith. I know I can do it. So I start slowly and carefully. I did write every day. I shared my ideas in some small groups I felt comfortable with. Instead of joining big gatherings or events, I run a free consulting service to connect 1:1 with readers.
The results were mind-blowing. It helps me not only build trust but also know how to grow my business. Listening to them, I understood their pain points. Thanks to that, I can develop my content strategy.
Eventually, a hundred thousand people read my blog posts. Some of them said it touched their hearts in a special way. They then became my clients. Having some experience, I was confident enough to launch my first paid service. It is a complete personal blog setup service. My income increased.
After nine months of working with clients, I introduced my blog coaching program. It changed my life forever. I knew for sure that it is possible for everyone, especially introverts, to build a solo business making six, seven, or eight figures a year.
