Who Is the Boss of Your Holiday Weekend?
The illusion of working for yourself is you don’t answer to anyone. The reality is you always have a boss.
With all the buzz and enthusiasm circling around entrepreneurship, one question I always ask someone who has launched their own venture is, “What is the biggest misconception about being an entrepreneur?” The notion entrepreneurship is glamorous or that everyone should do it are common answers. So are the crazy ideas that entrepreneurs make their own hours and work less than a 40-hour week. However, what comes up more often that not, is the misconception that entrepreneurs don’t have a boss. The reality is you always have a boss. As one entrepreneur said to me “…it’s more like “boss of no one, bossed by everyone.””
Just who does an entrepreneur have to answer to?
