Where do you place someone who starts a consulting firm?

A solopreneur whose business is a consultancy is not an entrepreneur. He or she is a consultant. However, when the firm grows beyond one consultant, and the solopreneur is working less and less with clients and more and more on growing the business, he or she becomes more of a CEO, or as Dara Khowsrowshahi, the CEO of Uber, calls himself: “A professional manager” — much different from how Travis Kalanick, Uber’s founder and former CEO, operates as an “entrepreneur,” which caused serious problems for the company at scale.
