People close to me can testify to my cloudy past with bosses. I was the kind of girl who would never put up with disrespect; I preferred to be jobless than to be someone’s doormat. It took me over thirty random jobs, most of which I quit impulsively, before I finally discovered that I could become my own boss and never have to bend over backwards again. The brilliant idea came to me five years ago that whatever I was good at, I could do it on my own. And ever since then, I have never looked back and regretted my choice of starting my own language school from home.
Many people lately are experiencing waves of fear concerning their jobs. They are afraid that because of so many cut-backs, because the economy is so shaky, that they might also pass through the blender and lose their jobs. Maybe it’s time for us to stop relying on the shaky foundations of others, and start building our own solid ones instead. But how do you become your own boss?
First thing, start by making a list of your talents, what makes you unique in your field. Look back at all the times you worked for someone else, and bring to your consciousness all that experience that you could use on your own terms. Then research the competition around you; the more you know about the competition, the more you can offer something new and exciting, sometimes at a lower price at first. Talk about your business idea to friends and family, ask for advice, consult an accountant on how you can start your own business. Talk to independent workers in your town or city, don’t be shy to ask them how they became their own boss.
It seems scary at first: becoming your own boss? Haven’t you always worked for someone else? Haven’t you always sacrificed your needs for someone else? The energy shifts presently on earth are pushing us more and more to become fully independent from the past shaky foundations. Once you step into your own vibration, your own work space, you will become so much lighter and freedom will finally embrace you. Trust yourself and the rest will follow naturally.
