No more bosses ordering you about..
This is one of the most exciting parts of running your own creative business, you don’t have to answer to one person.
But guess what?
You have to answer to many! All the people that give you money, have expectations on you and you need to be prepared for that.
But of course, your customer-bosses do not micro manage you or force you into meetings and such things. You are in charge of your time and all aspects of your business’s development. You set the pace and the schedule. You make all decisions yourself, so this is a skill you must learn quickly.
Discipline, planning, goal-setting, strategizing, education and skill-development. All of these are under your control, so you need be prepared for that you are accountable to yourself and to work from that starting point.
