As a business owner most underrated aspect is figuring out what tasks to do -sure its easy to slack off when you work for someone else -as owner with established business always have busy real work to do. But hired staff to do it for me so I can do what I do best, developing business. Not doing actual work of business. -feel like I am not being productive if I do the regular work b /c either way it will get done at some point without me having to do it -whats hardest is point where I need to figure out the new stuff, out of my comfort zone, that I don’t know how to do or if it will even work. That’s the kind of stuff I naturally want to procrastinate on but if I do, business is stagnate. I cant fool myself into doing whats comfortable. -unlike someone creating a new business, there is no pressure to make things better b/c there is no infrastructure to begin with. Pressure is when there is real work and money being made. Others are relying on my to get the work for all of us.

I have been fortunate enough to have my online business
grow recently, an as such I’ve hired a few employees. Now that I’m actually a boss, I’m realizing how very different being a boss is from being one’s own boss, the difference being as large as the difference between using boss as a noun and a verb. When you are your own boss you effectively have no boss, the boss is negated, you are responsible for noone. But when you the boss you are suddenly responsible for your employees, and their jobs. You also are free from the day to day minuate of runing a business, but you can be overwhelmed by the big picture that you now have no escape from. You realize routines are comforting, and to do well in business you must constnatly force yourself out of your comfort zone. Luckily for me, I’ve been traveling for the last few years, and the lessons I’ve learned in travel are directly applicable to being a business owner.
