My first book, The Fail-Safe Solopreneur, is now available for purchase on Amazon, Audible and iTunes.
Working for yourself comes with many upsides – and downsides. The Fail-Safe Solopreneur is your survival guide for managing the downsides.
Running a business can be stressful, lonely and brutal on your mental health. And surviving alone – apart from a tribe – runs against our evolutionary heritage.
Whether you’re a freelancer, creator or solopreneur, working independently requires a new set of skills to safeguard your well-being, so you can do your best work and fully enjoy your freedom.
After running a solo business virtually for 10 years, Darren C. Joe shares 6 field-tested practices to handle the inevitable failure, anxiety, instability and loneliness of solopreneurship. Each chapter centers around one key practice critical to survive and thrive being your own boss.
The Fail-Safe Solopreneur distills 10-years of hard-earned lessons into a practical, actionable framework that will help you weather the emotional rollercoaster of self-employment and design a work-life that thrills and fulfills you.

“I love this book! Darren has pulled out the ‘gold nuggets’ from his experience and has explained each essential practice in a way that is approachable, doable and relatable. A truly informative and inspirational read.” – Erin Conley, Marriage & Family Therapist
“What I love about the book is that it’s not a success story – it’s a work in progress story, which makes it so incredibly relatable… So not only is it a relief to read that there’s nothing unusual about constant self-doubt, questioning yourself and losing balance, but also it’s great to find simple, practical solutions to these problems.” – Mateusz Pospiech, Architect, Artist and Creator of Fresh ‘N Salty
“I’d highly recommend this book for people who are considering restructuring their life and who would like a raw, personal example of how one author, podcast host, and solopreneur has done it” – Stephen Turban, Founder of Lumiere Education and Author of “Your Relationship GPA”
