Who are Soloists?

Soloists are the next generation of skilled independent professionals working on our own terms, serving clients by doing what we love.

Our careers are all a little different - we're caterers and makeup artists, dog walkers, career coaches, doulas, and therapists. What links us is a common passion to follow our dreams and chart our own career paths.

Independent, Not Alone

The Soloist Collective is born out of the conviction that independent professionals deserve a community to call our own. This community aims to empower independent professionals who want to master their craft, grow their business and lead life on their own terms.

We believe you should be able to build a successful independent business by doing what you love. Find inspiration in the best practices, stories, and insights from other amazing Soloists like you. Because working Solo doesn't have to mean working alone.


The Soloist Collective is powered by Prefer. Prefer’s core mission is to build technology that gives Soloists the tools they need to make their independent businesses thrive. We know that running a business based on your passion is sometimes more busy work and less passion. We want to change that with an amazing platform.

The team at Prefer has spent hundreds of hours talking with Soloists. We’ve been so inspired by your expertise and skills. Our most important takeaway was that Soloists need each other to thrive, and that’s why we’re backing the Soloist Collective. We’ll build the tools, you build the community, and together we will lift up and inspire a whole generation of skilled professionals following their dreams.

The Soloist Collective is new and growing. If you'd like to be part of writing the next chapter of our history, get involved today.
