Leader or manager of people is two very different things.
To use my own experience when I began a business in the 90’s, I went through many different stages and had to quickly learn the difference.
According to a Forbes article I read, the Top Ten Qualities of a Leader are as follows.
- Having a great idea
- Ability to Delegate
- Positive Attitude
- Ability to Inspire

I want to bring your attention to being a leader in your home business. This could be your network marketing team, affiliate programme etc.
Your role is to lead rather than manage.
The people you recruit to your team are like you. Self employed entrepreneurs who want the freedom to do what they want in their life.
Therefore the way to act as a leader is by example and not by telling them what to do.
Empower people to take control and do things for themselves.
Being a leader can be tough, however, in the longer term, you would be doing someone a dis-service by boosting your own ego and having them rely on you for everything.
In today’s video, I share my views on leadership, my experience of being a manager AND a leader, what the difference is and how to be a leader yourself.
