What are solopreneurs like? Well, they’re like the guy with the amazing, colorful, unforgettable tenor voice.
I met a guy in college who had a voice like that — at St. Olaf College, renowned for its music department and choir.
Stepping foot on campus as a freshman, I thought I had a really good voice. At my high school near Cleveland, Ohio, I was a top bass in an excellent choral program. But during my first hours on campus at St. Olaf, I found out my voice was “meh,” by Olaf standards.
I learned this truth while talking with the guy who lived in the dorm room next door to mine. We were chatting about the freshman men’s choir, called the Viking Chorus. Both of us were going to try out for the group.
“That’s cool,” I probably said.
Then my next-door neighbor dropped a bomb on me.
