Changing Your Employee Mindset
When we leave our day jobs to become entrepreneurs we have to “unlearn” what it means to be an employee. It took me a full year to rid myself of the employee mindset! One of my clients gave me a much-needed kick in the pants. She explained to me that I was not her employee and therefore did not need to share everything I did in my business. All that time I was thinking she was my BOSS not my CLIENT – big mistake!
When you become an entrepreneur it requires a change in your mindset. So, remember…
You are the boss; not the employee.
The buck stops with you!
You make the decisions – the decisions are not dictated to you!
Don’t look to your clients for direction.
- Who you work with
- What you do
- When you do it
- How you do it
- Where you do it
- And for how much
Set business policies and stick to them!
Making the transition from employee to entrepreneur is a life-changing experience!
Take the time to embrace it.
