038: The Employee Mindset vs The CEO Mindset

Business Geeks Podcast

Did you know that most businesses fail because of the entrepreneur having the wrong mindset? 

In order for your business to grow and scale, switching from a worker bee to boss mode is essential. 

In this episode, we nerd out about the differences between the employee mindset and the CEO mindset and how you can get your mindset straight in order to grow your business. 

The major difference between having a CEO mindset and an employee mindset is the vision. CEO’s don’t get stuck on the day-to-day grind but look at the long-term vision. A CEO’s role is to create the company’s mission and vision and to create its growth strategy. 

Are you holding your business back with an employee mindset or are you pushing ahead with a CEO mindset?
