“If you’re feeling stuck… you’re NOT stuck. You just THINK you are, because you have been conditioned to believe you need a 9to5 to survive.”

- CJ

Do you have the mindset of HAVING a boss? Or BEING a boss? If you’re looking to break free from your employee mindset, then this is the episode for you! 

If you’re still working in your 9to5 and think you need it to survive, then you have an employee mindset. We’re conditioned to think that we need the security, predictability, and stability of a steady paycheque — and a boss to give it to us.

If you’re happy with that 9to5 life, more power to you. Many people are happy working their 9to5 alongside their side-biz, and that’s great. But if you’re looking to let go of that employee mindset, step CONFIDENTLY into entrepreneurship, and learn how to take time off WITHOUT guilt — you’ll want to hit play and take some notes!

  • A breakdown of the beliefs and motivations that make up an employee mindset
