Tell us your bold boss story!
My motto for 2016 is: The only bad decision is indecision. I decided to try my hand at creating a business this year, and have lived out my motto! I opened the doors for my side hustle business in January, and I made $1K in my first 3 months, and took that money and invested it in my business. Every time a new idea pops up, I remind myself that the only bad decision is indecision. If I go forward with an idea and it fails, that wasn't a bad decision, it was a learning experience. If it was successful, then it also was a learning experience! My recent big decision was to build an online course to teach creative bloggers key basics of web design and code, so they can make amazing posts, pages, and blog designs without having to hire a web designer (me!).
We're all about bold boss moments, tell us about one of yours!
I think one of my biggest boss moments was to suck it up and network! As an introvert, that's not really my forte, but I knew I needed to do this to meet potential clients. So I signed up for an event for lifestyle bloggers. I scheduled tweets with design work discounts for attendees and made sure I introduced myself to at least 10 people at the day-long event. By the end of the event, I had 3 potential clients, and a week later one of them hired me! That's the #hustle.
What advice or words of encouragement do you have for the Bold Boss Tribe?
Give it time. Someone else's "overnight success" is actually 10 years of hard work and learning experiences paying off.
