In celebration of 3 new partnerships including google ads , I want to give you guys some tools that helped me to get to where I am at today. Thank You all for supporting me and my company as it is growing everyday.
1. Always Show Respect
Always show respect to people as they will show you the same. The respect you show to others reflect how serious you take yourself. Showing people respect has helped me a lot in my professional life as it opened doors for me and allowed me to become a leader.
2. Presence Is Key
To become the part you have to act the part. No one will take you serious if you walk around with your chin to the grown , poor posture and dressing like a 12 year old. Stick your chest out. Look people in the eye when you are talking. When you enter the room it should be apparent that you are in charge with out you even barking orders. The way you present yourself is everything.
3. Pay Yourself First
When you get paid the first thing you should do is make out a budget. The second thing you should do is put some money into savings. It doesn't have to be a lot , just something that you build off over time. Paying yourself first is putting yourself first. As a boss, you are the most important person in the chain of command. If you are broke or something happens to you everything fails. So make sure that you are taking care of your finances.
4. Listen To Constructive Criticism
Notice how I said constructive... There's 2 types of advice you get from people, logical and emotional. Know the source and judge the information accordingly. If you believe the person has your best interest at heart, than take what they say with a open mind. A boss can always improve and learn to perfect their craft. Don't let your ego get in the way of you making key adjustments in life that can elevate you and your team.
5. Teach Others
What good is the knowledge if you can't share it with people. Part of the reason I started this blog was to share knowledge and inspire people to chase their goals. Also through out my life I learn and go through things that most 20 year old's don't , so I feel compelled to share them with people. So teach those around you. Give them game to elevate their self. Every female I dated has came out the relationship better than when they entered.
6. Take Care Of Your Health
With this Covid-19 going around people are starting to focus more on their health more than ever. Don't wait until it's a world wide pandemic to start taking vitamins. Take your vitamins and supplement everyday. Eat healthy and workout consistently. As a boss you are always on go. You don;t have to be sick because you didn't take care of your immune system. Get your ass up and work out! Your body is a reflection of how serious you take yourself.
7. Talk Less
This is something I learned the hard way.. The thing is the more you talk the more people can counter your moves and try to one up you. The boss in every corporate meeting is the one that's not there. He or she is probably at a golf range or at home. Let's say they are there. The rarely talk. They know that just their presence alone is enough value so to talk more than needed is a waste of time. You always want to guard your intentions and seem mysterious.
8. Have Confidence
This goes without saying, can't boss up with no confidence. Don't get confidence and being narcissistic confused. A lot of people are cocky which is a false sense of confidence. When you are confident, you chins up, you walk with a bop in your step and you don't care about what people have to say. Own all of your insecurities and try to improve on them as best as you can. But at the end of the day, you are unique and everything that is not perfect to you is fine. Have confidence in yourself and those that you trust.
9. Show Appreciation
One time I sent a thank you card to someone for helping me out and later down the line they helped me out 10x more than the first time. The fact that you show people that you are grateful makes them more compelled to help you out again. Not that you are dependent on others for help, but you always want to have great connections to as many people and resources as you can.
10. Be A Good Leader
Some leaders are born while others are developed. Either way it is important to be a great leader that people can look up to and depend on. Lead by example and don't be afraid to get your hands dirty when need be. Show your people how it's done so they can understand the expectations that you have put in place.
To this day I am practicing all of these laws and getting better at each everyday. If you found this post helpful make sure to share and subscribe for more!
