Overcoming the Bossy Blues

Some days, being the boss is HARD.

You work hard, you try to keep up with all that’s going on in the world, you encourage your co-workers, you try to keep up with the latest trends on social media, you crunch numbers, you hustle and pour your heart into your job, and you do all that is required to do your job well.

But some days, it’s just HARD.

But it’s SO worth it.

Because there is freedom in being your own boss.


Imagine, if you will, what that would mean:

Being the boss of your time.
Being the boss of your finances.
Being the boss of your talents.
Being the boss of your emotions.
Being the boss of your life.

Sure, some days it’s hard.  But are you going to let life kick you to the curb?

My friend and mentor, Jon Acuff, wrote an awesome book called “Do Over”.  If you haven’t read it yet, you need to get a copy!  You can read about it on my Bossy Book List.  Even if you haven’t read it yet, this is a great way to get started.  Jon extended a special invitation this morning that will kick start your summer, help you shake off those “bossy blues”, and help develop your current skills, taking them to a whole new level.  It’s the Do Over Summer Challenge!
