Who’s Your Boss

whos your boss

Let’s be honest: many of us chose to start our own businesses — or rise to the top — due in no small part to our lack of desire to work for someone else.

Put simply, we like being the boss.

But it is easy to forget that you must be your own boss as well. You may make a consistent effort to be the best boss possible for your staff (empowering, motivating, inspiring, supportive) — but if you fail to act as your own boss, you could be doing yourself and your business a significant disservice.

  • To find out if you are the best boss for you, ask the following:
  • Do you allow for sufficient vacation time? Do you enforce actually taking that vacation time?
  • Do you hold yourself accountable when you fail to meet performance standards?
  • Do you reward yourself when you exceed performance standards?
  • Does your pay and benefits package accurately reflect the value you provide to the company?
  • Do you consistently demand excellence of yourself — but also view mistakes as learning opportunities?
  • Do you require yourself to seek out ongoing learning and mentoring opportunities in order to grow in your role?

Just because you are the head honcho does not mean there is no one to answer to. After all, you still need to look at yourself in the mirror every morning.

Doing better often involves taking the right partners. If there is any way we can help you improve your business, do not hesitate to let us know.

We have found that the cost savings and efficiencies of working with a company like Owl is more beneficial than hiring our own in-house employee.

With Owl’s in-depth knowledge of our business and an awesome attitude, our business continues to run smoothly.

Owl staff understands not only the financial side of business but is able to coach us on other aspects of business decisions and to help us define alternatives.

The attention to detail, coupled with an understanding of and willingness to dig in to our unique systems and processes has kept us running smoothly.
