You Are Your Own Boss The bottom line is that as an independent agent, you ARE your own boss (or should be.) You are the 1 to make it happen and should be rewarded as such. You should own your own shop, area or region… whatever you prefer to call it… but it should be yours; where no 1 can take it away from you, and you are the biggest beneficiary of your hard work. What They Didn’t Tell You This is likely not your 1st rodeo. Perhaps you bought in to a system, group or organization with promises of fortune, fame and the good life if you simply worked hard and did what they said. So you put your head down, worked like a mad man or mad woman believing all the while that somehow you too would 1 day partake of the spoils. But it never seemed to happen. The harder you worked the further behind you seemed to get. How is that possible? What they didn’t bother to mention to you early on is their dirty little secret. Their success was not predicated on you being successful.
