I consider myself lucky to call myself a solopreneur—AKA I run my own business and work for myself. But the idea of solopreneurship is so romanticized— Make your own hours! Take on the project you love! No boss to breathe down your neck! Let me assure you, it’s not all laptops and lattes at the local coffee shop.

But this year, I came across something unexpected: The My Special Aflac Duck.
