It all started with a lot of "Whys": "Why do I have to pay so much more just because I am venturing on my own?", "Why are there certain things that I had yesterday, which I can't get today – just because of the fact that I'm now on my own?", "Why does self-employment mean forsaking basic corporate benefits" and so the "Why's" continued... Followed by a lot of frustration… "Why do I need to waste my time trying to understand and obtain things that should be straightforward instead of spending all my time and energy on building my business?"
This was 10 years ago when Helle Priess, the Founder of Doerscircle, started her journey as an Independent Doer.
"When I decided to leave what lots of people would call my stable and well-paying corporate job to chase my dream, I ended up having to pay 5 times more than the corporate rate for a less favorable insurance plan, even though I had been with the same insurance company for almost 10 years. That didn't make sense to me. I soon experienced similar challenges in banking as well as in more straightforward areas like mobile and software subscriptions. I felt like I was almost being ‘punished' for choosing to start my own business, and for being willing to take risks to chase my dreams". - Helle Priess
In 10 years certain things have developed. The freelance economy is booming, co-working spaces are popping up everywhere, and one could claim that entrepreneurs are the change-makers of today. Almost 50% of the global work force is already self-employed… We simply live and work differently today compared to what we did just 10 years ago. We live in a world that is constantly evolving. Yet, the world is still designed by corporates, for corporates.
We see Independent Doers as true innovators and future market drivers. As a team of entrepreneurs ourselves, we know what it is like to leave stability behind and jump into, or just live in, a world full of uncertainty. At Doerscircle, we unite Independent Doers to negotiate better conditions and ensure greater security and stability.
We believe that your time and energy should be focused on growing your business instead of spending time on and worrying about instability. Things should not become much more difficult when you are an Independent Doer. We are here to secure you easy access to affordable solutions, products and services essential in supporting your business, so that you can focus on creating value.
Our solutions, benefits and services are targeted, easy to understand, and most importantly, affordable. As there are no hidden costs or markups, we are able to offer you corporate prices or even lower!
