“What does it take to be a Boss in the Entertainment Industry”?
“I’m a Boss, You’re a Boss, and we are all Bosses”
In today's entertainment industry we are provided with book, podcast and more letting us know what we need to accomplish to become a Boss. Well we can read all the books and listen to all the podcast in the world at the end of the day if you work for a company where someone else hold the Boss title then he is the one who decides who becomes the next Boss.
Now the questions is how long will we stay in the background before we take that initiative to be the next Boss. In today economy you find that the numbers for new entrepreneurs are growing, everyone wants to be the Boss of their own company, Label, or clothing line. But do you have what it takes to be a Boss. To be a Boss requires great leadership skills, organization, communication and last but not least patients. Without these things you are setting yourself up for failure.
Rick Ross said it in his song “I’m a Boss” know he can say that, for he as established his name, company and reputation as the Boss. Sean P. Diddy Combs is another great example of a true Boss. He as built his empire from the ground up, through the good, the bad and the most discouraging times in his life. Being an entrepreneur takes patients its not easy starting a company from scratch especially with little and no funds especially in today’s economy. It takes hard work, dedication, motivation and a mind to succeed. I have watch some of today's great men and woman who came from nothing to being an icon and role model for many in this entertainment industry. They have motivated us to fight for what we believe in and never give up on your dreams. My advice to all my entrepreneurs looking to make it in the entertainment industry is to network, research and learn the ins-and–outs of the industry your trying to get into. I found that Networking opens up doors to great and potential possibilities. You can’t imagine the people I had the opportunity to network with and how they have help guide me in the right direction. Find that person that can give you the guidance you need to make it in the industry, but never forget always protect yourself, your ideas and work. For as P.Diddy said in his song “Its all about the Benjamin’s” Its hard to find loyalty and honesty in this industry and if you are not careful you can lose it all within a wink of an eye. Can you be a Boss that when the finance is not there you would cut your own salary to pay your employee and keep your company afloat? That’s what it takes to be a good boss.
I have provided some resources to help you get to the Boss level, if you find that you have what it takes to be the Boss then its time to take that step. I hope that you find this very resourceful and good luck.
