What Does It Take To Be Your Own Boss?



Are you thinking about quitting your day job to starting a business?


Before you send your resignation letter to your boss + quit the 9 to 5 grind (or more like 8 to 8 prison) or swap your cubicle for a home studio, please let me chime in to give you a few pointers.


What does it take to be your own girl boss? If I had a time machine, these are the things I would tell my 5-years-ago-self to be in the lookout for.


Well, you’ll have to press play to find out more.



Here’s a quick rundown of what we covered in today’s video:

1. Do the work.

2. Ignore everyone. 

3. Never stop learning.

4. Trust your instincts.

5. The Upside-Down Triangle

6. Done is better than perfect. 

7. Stop trying to man up. 

8. Believe you can. 


And that’s the advice I’ve got for my fellow girl bosses to be. Was it helpful? Oh I really hope it was.


Do you have a friend who’s thinking about starting their own thing? Send them this video please.


Thanks for watching + helping me spread the word.


Talk to you soon.
