Being the boss comes at a cost, thus the saying “paying the cost to be the boss”. There is a certain amount of responsibility and sacrifice that comes along with the title. Leading by example is essential; if you can’t follow the rule, how are you going to enforce it? First in, last out, the boss should log the most hours and be most dedicated. A certain level of passion must be expressed for people to buy in and truly believe in you as a leader. You want to be the boss? You have to pay the cost!
