How To Be Your Own Boss

How To Be Your Own Boss – Adam J. Kurtz for Design*Sponge

Dreams come true and now you’re achieving your goals while doing the thing you love. Life is perfect and every day is wonderful. You’re sipping coffee at your workspace and ready to dive in when you suddenly realize, “Holy crap, I have responsibilities… to myself. Oh my God.” The best and worst parts of being a creative entrepreneur are the same: you are in complete and terrifying control, fully accountable for every element of your business.

This wasn’t a guide I was prepared to write when this column began, but a few years later I’ve experienced plenty of battles with myself. It really boils down to acting like any boss or manager. Hold yourself to realistic standards and encourage yourself to get through the tough or less-fun tasks. (Just in time for tax season!) –Adam J. Kurtz
