Do people always say you are loud and bossy? If so, you’re a great candidate to be an entrepreneur.
For years, my wife Blake struggled to grow her business because she was too afraid to speak up. She didn’t want to toot her own horn and ended up leaving so much money on the table.
My wife Blake made a video about this which you can see below. If you want more content like this then make sure to subscribe to the Be Your Own Boss Podcast Youtube Channel where Blake and I teach you how you can be your own boss.
But then Blake decided that things had to change. She stopped working for free and started promoting herself, asking for money, and closing sales. Her life and business changed, and she made hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Women often face a tricky balancing act as they try to walk the tightrope between being likable and successful. Blake constantly worried about saying the wrong thing, coming across as too aggressive, or being viewed as too soft and missing business opportunities.
Her advice to other women is to forget about being likable. As an entrepreneur, you don’t need people to like you. You choose who you work with. Being viewed as loud and bossy means you have opinions, are decisive, and have energy to give. Those are all great skills for entrepreneurs.
Don’t worry about being bossy or aggressive—you’ll be a great entrepreneur.
