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:

  • Do the work.
  • Ignore everyone. 
  • Never stop learning.
  • Trust your instincts.
  • The Upside-Down Triangle
  • Done is better than perfect.
  • Stop trying to man up.
  • 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.




  1. Trust your instincts!!! THAT is one that I still need to really get. Pretty sure that’s one of my big stumbling blocks. Darn monkey brain, roflol! And the upside down triangle… I need to get that in my head too. I want all the things to be magical NOW! lol

  2. Yes– definitely need to work on my upside down triangle. Too many things buzzing around in my brain I haven’t stopped develop any one thing fully. Thanks Mayi, great video and love seeing little Olivia!
