The Many Hats Entrepreneurs Wear
I've been so busy knocking off things on my "to-do list" that this is the first moment I've had to update my blog...but that's cause it's the beginning of the month!
Yesterday I paid bills and sent out invoices, produced an hold voice over message for a client, sent out a proposal for a new potential client, and got a logo update approved for another client.
You know, when I worked in radio, I would often where many hats: On-air personality, producer, commercial writer, sales assistant, manager, volunteer, brain stormer. I've always believed that really prepared me for entrepreneurship.
Heck, just yesterday I wore these hats: accountant, voice over artist, marketer, web designer. Tomorrow I'll throw on the social media expert and public speaker hats.
The day after that, I get to wear this one..."the money chasing" hat. I've done work for a company that has filed for bankruptcy. I've got to file a claim for my outstanding invoices. That will be the subject of another post.
The bottom line: If I had to wear the same hat everyday, I'd get tired of it. Entrepreneurship really lets me mix it up!
How about you? Tell me about all the hats you wear.
