How to be Your Own Boss

I do not know about you, but as a child, I have always dreamed of becoming my own boss. For me, being a boss is something that makes me feel in control of my own destiny. Therefore, I thought it is such a noble dream to have.

In my employment years, I have realized there are good bosses and then there are bad bosses. Most bosses I know do try their best to be good. Unfortunately, the current working scenario just could not let them afford this luxury. When you come to think of it, do you believe your boss thinks about you when he or she wakes up in the morning? Of course not. While most trainings I have attended about leadership emphasizes the importance of connecting with one’s people and inner circle in the work place, the fact still remains that even though your leader is as nice and magnanimous as he or she can be, nobody will care about your career more than you do. Granted, there might be a few exceptions. But maybe, it is mostly likely your parents or your spouse. What this really means is that you yourself must take responsibility for managing your own career. I hope it is clear for you that you can never ever think for even a single moment that you can leave it to anyone else.

The hard truth is that your bosses and your co-workers are mainly focused on themselves and their careers. This does not mean that they are not interested in helping you succeed. However, you should bear in mind that their main concern will be their own future promotion and their own career’s trajectory. So, why not give yourself a favor and think of how you can be your own boss with your own company?

I know it is hard, but you can do it by taking things one at a time. To be your own boss, start cultivating the mindset of a CEO. You must start adopting the mindset of an employer as this will make you committed. Having an employee mindset will never get you ahead in life. An employee mindset makes you merely compliant. As you may have realized during this pandemic, job security today is just a myth. Even the usual competition, mergers and acquisitions have led to so many being jobless. So, it is up to you to guarantee yourself a lifetime employability.

As the statistics show today, the average working man or woman has three to five changes in careers during their lifetime. More and more people in the working place including your boss, his or her boss and their bosses are required to do multi-tasking. It is sad to say that they, too, are having a hard time making their careers work. With this scenario, do you think they still have time to take care of yours?

To be a boss, knowing yourself is as important as knowing how you can do your job.  It is also equally important that you be able to build your brand. Yes, you need to have a brand.  A brand that says you are good in what you do and that you are a master craftsman. A brand that says you are reliable and trustworthy when it comes to what you are offering, be it products or services. A brand that shows you have the leadership skills needed to help propel your people and your company to greater heights and success.

To be a boss, you must always sharpen your skills. Stay competitive and ahead of the game. However, do not forget to work hard on your soft skills, too. Remember that making this happen is not your employers’ responsibility but yours. In fact, the world does not owe you a living. The number of years you stay in your company is not even a basis for you to get ahead unless you show you have got the necessary skills for it. The key here is to have self-leadership.

If you want to become your own boss but do not know how or where you can get started, I highly recommend that you consider joining us at the International Marketing Group or IMG. Why? It is because at IMG, you will be able to enjoy a lot of premium membership benefits while you are learning and mastering the skills of becoming a financial educator. So of course, you can have a business here in the financial industry. As a business owner in IMG, you can be your own boss and take control of your time here as it is up to you when you want to work and how much you really want to earn. You can do the business of IMG anytime and anywhere either online or offline around the world. You have no physical products and so you need not worry about inventory, delivery and shipping.  As there is no quota here or even demotion, you would be able to work here without any pressure. You can set your goals depending on your financial plan. So, you see, you are in total and complete control here especially when it comes to your business. 

If you are happy with your job now but are just wanting to earn an additional income, go ahead and do this IMG business part-time. If you have lost your job and are looking for work, try this and make it work on a full-time basis.  Either way, I am sure you will finally be able to transition yourself into becoming your own boss. Another thing to remember here is that your educational attainment does not matter, too, so long as you are willing to learn the ropes and are very coachable in doing the IMG business. What attracted me first to IMG is their Free seminars or webinars, financial workshops and exclusive financial books. I do believe that financial ignorance can make you poor. It is only through financial education that we can fight poverty. Now, one secret of successful people in any industry is that they have mentors who taught them and guide them to become one. And you will find that in IMG, you will have mentors, too, to teach you and guide you in becoming a success here. 

In IMG, you’ll find that even though this is a big business in the financial industry where you can earn millions and as much as you like, all you really need to get started is a very low start-up capital of Php5,500.00 only.  Yes, it is that low but do not be deceived as the earning potential here is so great. In fact, you can make active income here as well as passive income.  You will also be able to get amazing rewards like travels, free healthcare, plaques, rings, pins, cars etc. But the best thing in IMG is you get ownership of your business. Becoming a CEO can be a dream come true in IMG. You can even leave a legacy to your family. All that hard work you have done for your family can really be enjoyed by them long after you are gone. So how cool is that? I know it may sound too good to be true especially when you may have had bad experiences on some opportunities you have got. However, I urge you to give this a try. The worst thing that can happen to you in IMG is you paid the membership fee, got financially educated and applied it to building your solid financial foundation.  Now the best thing that can happen to you in IMG is you got to be your own boss, took control of your life as well as your finances.

In IMG, you can learn, earn and grow at the speed you choose to become the boss you want to be. And remember, you have mentors here who will help you succeed in every step of your journey to becoming your very own boss. You will also have a community here of like-minded people who will remind you of your reasons for wanting to achieve your financial goals and life goals. This alone will make you right on target with how you want to create your life by choice.
