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.

You determine:

  • 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 the time to embrace it.
