In this episode of $30k questions, a podcast miniseries aimed to help you explore and implement money-making questions, I discuss leadership and how you can be confident in thinking about leadership as a necessary skill rather than something to avoid. Often, with negative past experiences under bad bosses, it can be easy to hesitate when leading.

Functional leadership is a skill. Here’s how to lean into it: 

  • Ask yourself: on a scale from one to ten, how would you rate your skill with . . . 
  • Vision casting
  • Communicating
  • Setting expectations?
  • Fulfilling these and working on functional leadership as a skill allows you to gain more understanding in your journey as an entrepreneur. Remember: leadership can be healthy and productive.
