Michelle Nedelec the founder and owner of Success Therapy and the author of Business Ownership Mindset is here to talk about fostering and developing a true entrepreneurial mindset.
Too many entrepreneurs start a business, but still have that employee mindset. We talk about the differences in mindsets for employees, entrepreneurs, and business owners. Running a business is not the same as buying a job. Michelle gives advice for removing yourself from your business and thinking like an owner instead of an employee.
You can find Michelle here:'There is a different way of thinking that needs to be embraced in order to take on staff, take on business, and step out of the business in order to run it.' -Michelle Nedelec Click To Tweet
