What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from being a boss?
The biggest lesson I have learned from being a boss is "Everyone can't go with you". This was a hard lesson to learn, but I had to learn to embrace it. I'm always creating tables and spaces for others to go with me as I continue to grow. I have learned that sometimes people are either not ready to go with you to that next level or they are not suppose to go. Seasons change and people change. God will always place the right people who are suppose to go on the journey with you.
