BOSSY has such negative connotations
This is my favorite coffee cup. I sip hot steaming black brain juice out of it. It’s a daily reminder.
BOSSY has such negative connotations – and it’s a word mostly applied to girls and women. Being the BOSS is gender neutral but it’s a power word. Don’t let it fool you though.
Being the boss also carries a huge weight of responsibility, particularly if you work for yourself.
People think -- I only answer to myself.
But, that’s not exactly true.
I work on projects which means I answer to many different people.
I navigate different personalities, different office cultures, different deadlines.
People are envious because -- I set my own schedule.
But, that’s not exactly true either.
I have to be flexible and available when I’m needed.
People think -- I work at my own pace.
Nope. Not always true.
As a freelancer, I work at the pace required of the project.
There are certainly benefits to working for myself.
But, I miss collaboration.
So, I’ll always be looking for the perfect place to share a coffee.
