Everyone has a boss
Maybe it’s your biggest customer.
Maybe it’s your wife.
Maybe it’s your chairman.
Maybe it’s your dad.
Whatever. It doesn’t matter who your boss is.
It just matters that you don’t forget it. Especially as you become successful.
When you find success its easy to think your unaccountable, answerable to no one.
That way lies failure.
Someone needs to keep you honest, to hold you to a higher standard, to help you skirt the line between being a cowboy to being a crook.
Make sure you know who your boss is, and listen when she speaks.
If you don’t like your boss, find another one.
