October 6, 2023
You were made for more than the lonely hustle. Gather with other speakers, authors, coaches, consultants and Solopreneurs from around the world — and learn to grow both your purpose and your profits.
Flying Solo is hard.
(Like, really hard.)
"I'm lacking clarity and don't know what to focus on."
"My website isn't working the way I hoped."
"Social media is exhausting."
"I hate selling."
"I'm just not generating enough leads."
"Some days, I just want to quit."
It doesn't have to be that way.
Running a business isn't for the faint of heart. The overwhelm is real. And when you mix in the isolation and lack of guidance that is so common with solopreneurship, it's easy to get stuck.
But deep down, you know you were put on this planet for a reason. You have a calling — something that you're passionate about and have worked diligently to get off the ground, all in an effort to create tangible change.
What if you could fulfill your greatest vision?
What if you could wake up every morning and go to bed each night in awe, thinking, "I can't believe I get to do this."?
learn. grow. scale. together.
Increase your purpose, profits and more by discovering and performing your Wonder Work.
At Solo Con 2023, you'll gain powerful insights and inspiration from leading Solopreneur, Harris III, along with other industry leaders on what it means to be a successful Solopreneur who is building a brand with meaning and purpose at the forefront.
During this free, one-day virtual event, you'll learn how to find and perform your Wonder Work, which exists at the intersection of 3 essential points of your business: Purpose, Profits, and Poetry.
When you gain clarity about these 3 points, you become perfectly positioned to identify your most important next steps for growth.
Through the proven steps of the Wonder Work Roadmap, you'll be guided down a path that will show you how to leverage what you were put on this planet to do. With each step, you'll find clarity about where you are, what you need next, and how to set up and attain present and future goals for your business.
Find the clarity and connection you need in order to succeed as a solopreneur.
15 min in and I'm already like 'THANK GOD I FOUND THIS CONFERENCE!'
MELODY A | SOLO CON 2021 ATTENDEE
4 Transformative Mainstage Sessions
Experience unprecedented growth as a Solopreneur through instructional and inspirational keynotes and interviews.
It's not the work you do, it's what happens in the world around you when you do what you do. Clarify your ICA, your distinctive values, your offering, and get a plan in place for your next 90 days of growth.
Most Solopreneurs didn't start a business to make money, they started a business to make a difference. But purpose without profits isn't sustainable, so you'll learn to increase your profits and build a better future for yourself and the world.
People. Process. Play. It's time to scale and ramp up your impact by finding the right people, building the right processes around you, and returning to a place of play where you can love and have fun in your business once again.
If you're going to turn your pain into purpose-driven work, it's going to require passion to push through the roadblocks and challenges not if, but when they come your way. But everything you do prepares you for everything you do. The danger is when your passion eludes you, because you don't have a proven path forward. Now you'll have one.

In order to preserve the magic at Solo Con, just like any of our other events, we do not share a detailed schedule of who is speaking when. We have found that most attendees leave most inspired by a talk from a speaker who wasn’t previously on their radar. Come prepared to be fully present and soak up all of the magic that comes from being surprised along the way. It’s one of the most talked-about and appreciated aspects of the experiences we design.
Yes! Stay tuned by watching your inbox for some cool opportunities to participate in our attendee-only trainings. We’ll help you prepare to maximize the return on investment of your conference ticket, as well as offer you ways to get to know some of our speaker lineup. In addition, there will be some exciting ways to pre-game your Solo Con experience starting the day before the main event with pre-conference activities on our virtual platform.
We’ve designed Solo Con to serve Solopreneurs in each stage of their entrepreneurial journey, but all with the specificity of the path of solopreneurship. The conference experience has been designed to not only equip you with valuable insights, skills and training, but to also inspire you, and perhaps most importantly, to connect you with other Solopreneurs, getting you out of isolation and into community. There is nothing else like this on the market. And at this price point, the value of this year's VIP ticket is unrivaled by any online course or program.
