Independent Contractors and Having a CEO Mentality



What is your perspective on having the right mentality in your business? If you don’t have the right perspective, your business mentality is going to be off and you’ll have a harder time finding success.

As an independent contractor, you are in business for yourself and there is no boss. You are your own boss. Now, if you are on the “can’t” mentality then you’re going to have more difficulties succeeding. If you’re on the “can do” mentality, then success is a sure thing.


I recently read an encouraging article from Shaklee Presidential Master Coordinator, Gary Burke. He definitely has the right mentality when it comes to a business perspective that has lead towards success.

Obviously, he has seen and experienced success. He is at the top of his game in his field. He’s reached certain pinnacles of success because he had the right mentality as he was climbing the ladder of success.

If you want something bad enough, you need to go out and get it. Of course, not stealing it from someone, but earning it with hard work, discipline and perseverance—continually acting with the right mentality.


When you’re an independent contractor, you get all the glory, but you also have to have the guts first to get to the glory.

You need to see yourself as a CEO, not simply a contractor.

Remember the right business mentality—you are in business for yourself and need to do what it takes to get the job done.

However, that’s also the beauty of this type of work situation. You don’t have a boss to micromanage your business and every work task.

However, you must maintain the right mentality and learn to be your own good steward and manage your time wisely.

If you want success in your business, you’re going to have to make it happen yourself. That takes work but the rewards are beyond-belief-phenomenal.

What mentality do you hold on to? Are you ready to be your own boss? Do you have the guts to get the glory? What dreams are you chasing after?
