The RKease Journey: Solitude

"Loneliness is the poverty of self. Solitude is the richness of self" - Mary Sarton

Solitude, on a journey by myself, to achieve my goals and build my wealth

Throughout my entrepreneurial journey, it has had many ups and downs but the constant persistence, discipline, and patience has enabled me to keep striving to reach my goals. As of right now, the life of a solopreneur is definitely different, unique, and a one of a kind experience. People say that entrepreneurship is a lonely journey, but personally I believe that it is a solitude journey. There is a difference between loneliness and solitude and I'll be gladly to speak about what is the difference for me in this blog.

Loneliness is the unhappiness or depression one feels when one has no company or friends. Solitude is the state of being alone, especially when it is peaceful and present. Solitude is a fundamental principle of the entrepreneurial journey because you are constantly alone with a positive mindset to be able to one day see your dreams and goals come to fruition. There are many benefits to having solitude, being alone, and here are some quick facts which I found through my research on a Forbes article, (

  • Alone time builds empathy

  • Solitude increases productivity

  • Solitude sparks creativity

  • Being alone can help you build mental strength

  • Solitude reduces behaviour problems with kids

  • Being alone gives you opportunity to plan your life

  • Solitude helps you to get to know yourself

Based on these facts, being solitude has definitely sparked my creativity because I create jingles for my stress-less journey on Tiktok, while creating blogs, content create through blogs as well, and even network online through cold emailing. All of this takes solitude and throughout my journey it has been crucial to be in this state. Also in terms of productivity and mental strength my mindset and actions have been very congruent simply because solitude enables you to have extreme focus for what you have to do and the tasks that you have to get done.

In conclusion, I love the entrepreneurial journey because of the solitude that I go through in order to enhance my innovation, creativity, skill sets and mindset. While being alone on this journey it has been phenomenal as well, and you begin to see people through your journey that see you working hard and want to help you along the way as well. Tech Alliance, the innovation centre has been great in terms of helping me build my startup so that I can continue to make strides in business to one day make a stream of income from it. Hopefully, one day I can make money from my venture in order to provide for myself and make an impact in the community, society, and world. I hope you enjoy the blog and stay tuned for more soon, peace!! :)
