Why You Should Be A Leader, Not A Boss

Today, i just want to share some tit bits with you. I got inspired to write this because of some statements i often hear from aspiring entrepreneurs. Statements such as “i want to be my own boss” or “i want to be in charge” or “i hate taking orders.” Most entrepreneurs aspire to be their own boss instead of aspiring to become leaders.

So i want to correct this ill. I want you to see why you should be a leader and not a boss. This message is in an easy to understand format so please share it with your family and friends. Good luck:
