It’s All In Your Head
All of my life up to recently I have been an employee. I have worked in a cinema, a lot of engineering companies including well know names and lastly in the computer hardware business.
The thing that all these jobs had in common was that the employer decided the scope of my responsibilities. They decided what I had to do, when it had to be done plus anything else that came along.
There was a job description and a clear line of authority, usually above me and sometimes below me as well. Although employment can be difficult and stressful, running your own business is a completely different ballgame.
When you are working for yourself, you are responsible for every decision and the results those decisions produce. The buck really does stop with you.
