How to think like a boss

July 20, 2023

Beginning freelancers often continue to think like employees, which is both a common problem and an obstacle to growth.

“You have to learn how to be a boss in a world where the vast majority of workers never work for themselves. … You don’t get to fully reap the rewards of independent work if you can’t break the employee mindset. Here are the key mindset shifts that need to happen to claim your freedom like a boss,” writes Sarah Duran in her article Six Ways To Start Thinking Like a Boss, pointing out the following six areas for improvement:

  1. You make the decisions and solve the problems
  2. You hold the purse strings and fill the purse
  3. You know what you’re worth and how to ask for it
  4. You decide what you do and when you do it
  5. You develop yourself
  6. You decide when to not work
