I came across a trend called Minipreneurs:
A vast army of consumers turning entrepreneurs; including small and micro businesses, freelancers, side-businesses, weekend entrepreneurs, web-driven entrepreneurs, part-timers, free agents, cottage businesses, seniorpreneurs, co-creators, mompreneurs, pro-ams, solopreneurs, eBay traders, advertising-sponsored bloggers and so on.
Some, if not all of these, are now present in the Philippine scene. The figures in the article are probably irrelevant, but the minipreneurship drivers and ecosystem factors are. Fulltime problogging is becoming more of a local career, and many locals are making eBay.ph a business.
This ties in with a new Paul Graham essay, How to Do What You Love. Graham outlines the steps in balancing financial rewards with psychic payback – and the big challenges along the way.
Good stuff to consider when thinking about the transition to a Net-driven career.
