BOSS Mindset – National Entrepreneurs’ Day – It’s SOOO Hard

It’s National Entrepreneurs’ Day and to celebrate in true BOSS fashion, we are gonna be super real with you. RUNNING AND OWNING A BUSINESS IS HARD! There are ups, downs, fears, uncertainty, feast, famine, and everything in between. Some days, as a boss, you’re barely in control! Get off the roller coaster, and take a 20 minute Boss Break to empathize (or bitch it out) with our boss ladies. And stick around for the outtakes!


Quick Concepts from Today’s Episode:

  1. Celebrate being an entrepreneur and ALL of the ups and downs.

  2. Running a business is super hard some days. It’s not all rainbows and sunshine.

  3. You are not alone in these feelings and it’s not you.

  4. Sometimes entrepreneurs just have to figure things out on their own.

  5. Most of us would do it again and tolerate all the discomfort in order to reap the rewards.

  6. Most bosses frequently question if they are doing the right thing or making the right decisions.

  7. We are all control freak, Type As who want things done our way.

  8. Business owners rarely know what they are doing 100% of the time.

  9. Most people get into voiceover because of a passion/love for the industry and job. Serial entrepreneurs have a different motivation.

  10. Voiceovers get over emotional and frequently think with our hearts, not our heads.

  11. Fear and anxiety are a bigger part of business than most people acknowledge.

Gabby: Long before we had combined our BOSS powers, Ms. Ganguzza, I wrote a little publication by the name of “How to set up and Maintain a Better Voiceover Business.” [laughs] And it is an absolute must, not only for the business basics of voiceover and to help kind of get your BOSS butt in gear, especially if the business side of our world has always been a little bit of a strain for you, but also it’s gonna help you with your marketing, and branding, and helping you to develop your own personal brand in voiceover.

Anne: Welcome, everybody to the VO BOSS podcast. I’m your host, Anne Ganguzza, along with my entrepreneurial bosstie, Gabby Nistico. Hey, Gabby!

Gabby: Hi!

Anne: Gabby, this morning, I had to put my head in my hands in frustration. You know something, being an entrepreneur is mrghh hard.

Gabby: Well, yeah.

Anne: Oh my God, it’s hard.

Gabby: It’s such a double-edged sword. Right? Today is National Entrepreneurs Day, which —

Anne: Yay! Happy National Entrepreneurs Day.

Gabby: — which is kind of awesome, right, and we should celebrate that, and we should be, you know, like blowing kazoos and all kinds of things, and, and making noise, and patting ourselves on the back.

[kazoo noises]

Anne: Yeah.

Gabby: We don’t necessarily get to do that because damn it, it’s hard. [laugh]

Anne: It’s so much —

Gabby: So much [bleep] to do.
