Any plans to turn it into a series?


Can you tell us a little about experiences?

My experience is unconventional. I actually never wanted to be an entrepreneur. I always thought I would be the CEO of a big company or an executive at one. I tried varies businesses as well as worked countless jobs trying to find my purpose. Which landed me where I am today.

What section did you have the most fun writing?

The first honestly dealing with mindset. As an African American woman mindset hasn't always been something I could focus on. I was raised to stuff down my feelings and work through them. I know that wasn't intentional just what was taught to me because it was what my parents were taught. Like I said before, my journey wasn't conventional and know the main reason for that was because I didn't understand the power of mindset and how it controls your behaviors and actions. This process of highlighting that point made me relive some uncomfortable moments but also because I now understand it, allow me to deal with it in a healthy way.

What inspired the idea for the book?

Many conversations over the years with clients as well as my own experience with starting my own businesses.

How did you come up with the title for the book?

I was having a venting session after a consultation. I was frustrated at how this particular potential client did all the wrong things in starting their company and why they were currently in trouble financially. It was then I had an aha moment that while a lot of people want to own their own businesses, they lack what's required to be successful at it. I said to myself, everyone wants to be the boss but lack understanding of what that looks like. I then wrote a few names down, then asked my team which ones they liked the best, this one won.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing So You Think You Want To Be A Boss?

Absolutely! When I decided on this journey even though I had a plan, I was shown early on that my plan wasn't a really solid one. The reason is because life started happening for me fast and i had to make some really tough decisions that obviously was not part of the plan.

What do you like to do when not writing?

Believe it or not, I am an avid reader myself. This really became evident when I embraced technology and allowed the resources available to make reading easier for me. I also enjoy trying new recipes and tweaking them to make them my own
