Lead By Example.
Today as I worked from the reception, a colleague came in and said I don’t suite to do what I was doing, he flattered me saying I deserve to be in the usual Main Office and on the company decision making throne. I thought I should share my response to him.
Don’t Be Mislead By The CEO Title.
Many startup entrepreneurs fail because the CEO title gets to their heads. The key attribute for a startup entrepreneur is the ability to sale, the good thing is that most of them push this agenda very well in their early stages but as soon as a few Kwachas are in the account and a few more people have been hired they start reporting for work at 10AM because they are the boss. Leave work at any time they please, have fun at any time they want because they have attained the freedom they sought from employment.
Inspire Your Team.
My friend as the CEO for a startup company make it a point that no one out works you, roll your sleeves and get your hands dirty in bringing in sales, lead from the front and not behind, be an inspiration to your team because of your Hard work.
If you don’t, I am afraid your sought after freedom may be short lived.
