Boss vs Employee Mentality
"9 to 5's aren't good because you're hustling for the weekend. When you hustle for yourself and your family it never feels like work. I hustle for my last name I don't hustle for my first"
Other cool perspectives from the video:
Employee values security of a job. Boss values pride in having your name on it, ownership, being self-directed, in having people close to you have pride in what you've created and being able to pass on the assets you build as well as the value of a boss mindset.
Having a boss is like a grown man calling another dude daddy, needing permission vs investing in yourself being a boss is making your own decision and not needing permission from someone else.
I agree with most of that stuff but their are still good jobs out there with six figure salaries where you may still have a boss and certainly are not slaving away
Good stuff. Didn't watch, but good stuff
"Having a boss is like a grown man calling another dude daddy, needing permission vs investing in yourself being a boss is making your own decision and not needing permission from someone else."
This is an issue. What's being described above is a fucking horrible boss who shouldn't be in that position in the first place. If that's the dynamic that's being created, I can PROMISE you that boss won't be successful or in that position for long.
Having a boss can be an amazing growth experience. A boss can be much like a mentor. There are times where it's helpful to have a boss, because that person can teach you and guide you as you build your own path. A boss whose doing a good job should be there for support and guidance and should be facilitating your growth.
A boss who is successful, is going to be doing just as much for his employees as his employees are doing for him.
So yeah, I get what is trying to be said here, and I think there are good intentions behind it- but I gotta call bullshit when I see it. Can't let this slide. It's not good for anyone to just let something like this be said.
I agree, a good boss is supposed to be your mentor.

This is a great point! And I thikn anybody can have this mindset - because that's all this is. It's a mindset. If we are spending our time being concerned about the stability of our job, we're going to be playing to lose rather than playing to win. And again, I'd say that a great boss can instill this mindset in all of his employees. A great boss gives you a COMPLETE sense of ownership, and doesn't look to undermine that sense of ownership in subtle ways that can often stem from the boss's own insecurities (I know becuase I noticed I was doing this to some of my employees a while back, and completely cut it off)
It's crazy what happens when you get over that fear. I remember having that fear for the first year or so at this job. I also had a fear that my bosses at the time wouldn't see me as management material because I was too young or something.
You start to take more risks, and really delve into things more and look to mine data for value. What's being summed up in this quote is really just the difference between somebody who comes at their professional life from a place of fear, vs. someone who comes at it without fear.
