EMBiz - Being The Boss

Hi Guys, Laurel Mintz here with Elevate My Brand. Today I want to talk to you about what being the boss really means. As you guys know we’ve been running the agency for almost ten years (hopefully I don’t look it) and the last nine years I’ve been completely and totally in love with my business until this year. This was a really challenging year for me and so I wanted to share with you honestly about what being the boss really means. This year it was about building a new team, it was about managing cashflow in a way that we didn’t have to prior and it was a lot of pressure, so I think I wanted to just have a really honest and open dialog to express to you the challenges that go along with the benefits of running your own shop. So, this year we’ve had a lot of change. We’ve moved our entire team over, we restructured and honestly we are ending the year on such a high powerhouse note.

I’m so excited to let you guys know that I’m back in love with the business again but running our own thing is really really hard so I hope that you guys out there take the time really understand what being the boss is all about. It has its benefits but it is incredibly challenging and this year more than ever I really realized what this challenge is all about, but those that were meant to be bosses will always shine and so I stepped up this year and I hope that if you are looking to do your own thing you will learn about what really being a strong leader is for your team, for yourself and for your clients. That’s all for now and stay tuned for more from Elevate My Brand.
