How can sustainable entrepreneurship be lived radically as a solo-entrepreneur?

Much of the available literature about sustainable business models predominantly addresses large corporations, prompting me to question the adaptability of these models for solo-entrepreneurs and freelancers. I wanted to find an answer to the question: How does sustainable entrepreneurship apply to solo entrepreneurs?

Unlearning Mental Models for effective Transformation

In my last blog post, I argued that we need Radical Responsibility instead of the Triple Bottom Line. Now, I want to delve deeper into what the concept of „Radical Responsibility“ actually means. For this, I’ll take a look at the concept of Self-Leadership and demonstrate why we need to unlearn existing mental models.

Why we need Radical Responsibility instead of the Triple Bottom Line

Our world is interconnected, our resources are limited, and every decision we make impacts all other areas around the globe. This is particularly evident in the business world. The 20th century was characterized by a corporate leadership ethos that prioritized profit maximization as the sole objective of all economic activities. This principle was taught in business schools and practiced in daily business operations. It was based on the idea of the Homo Economicus, who is rational and acts with the sole aim of profit maximization. However, as the planet’s finite resources started to dwindle and societal divisions intensified, an increasing number of individuals began to reconsider this approach around the turn of the millennium. The Triple Bottom Line-Approach seemed to be a good way of handling this problem. But it will not be sufficient to prevent us humans from surpassing planetary boundaries.

„Don’t assume that you won’t experience burnout.“

Naomi Ryland about leadership, humanity and self-reflection.
In a world beset by numerous crises, the manner in which we carry out our work and conduct business must be reevaluated. This begins with leadership and organisational structures. Naomi Ryland has taken on this challenge. As a founder, speaker, author, and revolutionary, Naomi states: „Our days of aspiring to fit into a start-up world – and an​ ​economic system – that is so severely broken are well and truly over.”
