    Being new I find myself when having a conversation with someone about my business I say "I" if I know them and "we" if I don't, but in advertising or print I use "we" even thou I am a solo operation. I guess not really a question just an observation.

    I, seems to be a little more personal and we, seems to be a little more commercial to me if this makes sense? Not to say one is better or worse than the other.

    I say "we". I only have 1 employee, so I guess "we" would be correct. Even when I was solo I said "we".

    Funny, I thought I was the only one that said we - even if it's just me. I have some part timers but even when I was solo, it was always we. I guess I thought it sounded more professional, as opposed to yeah, it's just me.
