What It Means To Do The Work

May 3, 2022

What does it mean to do the work? After 7 years and 300 episodes, Emily reboots the very first Being Boss podcast episode. She explores why doing the work is what separates the hobbyists from the professionals, why it is critical to also have a devotion to the craft of business, and why having self-awareness is necessary for getting what you want. This concept continues to be a cornerstone of our conversations in our community and other entrepreneurs. Because when you show up to do the work, you are being boss.
