Be The Man [or woman]

Be The Man [or woman]
My history teacher was my favorite in High School.  
When I graduated, I asked “any Ryan Mikolashadvice”?

He said “be the man”.  'be the man'?  
That could mean several things.  He clarified “be the boss”.  

Ah.  His words stuck.


I observed bosses over the years.  They all seemed miserable.  One problem after another.  I concluded that being “the man” was certainly not for me.  Ironically, I consistently thought that I could always run a company better or that I would make better decisions than my bosses.  So, there I was, I had convinced myself that being a boss was way more hassle than it was worth yet I could clearly do it better.

You know where this is going, don't you?  Yep, I now run the world's leading manufacturer of ping-pong balls.  Naw, I'm just kidding.  However, I don't have a boss anymore. I am an independent distributor with Young Living.  

It turns out that I don't always make better decisions than my former bosses did but that's fine.  I'm not saying that it's easy but the job comes with many benefits.  No more commute or cubicles, to name only two. The heart and soul of network marketing is using your heart and soul to create lasting relationships with great people.  

My history teacher was right, you want to “be the [wo]man”.
