CEO vs. Freelancer Mindset

What is the difference between a CEO mindset and a freelancer mindset? Below is the starting list. 

✅ A CEO makes decisions from a worldview perspective.

⚠️ A freelancer considers what is in front of them (time, bank balance, upcoming bills) when making decisions.

✅ A CEO considers the business to be a large organization with many departments (even if there is a single operator).

⚠️ A freelancer considers themselves to be the only person who can produce the product/service.

✅ A CEO believes that time & money are equal in value. Delegates in order to achieve results w/out costing personal time. Rarely rejects an opportunity that can be delegated.

⚠️ A freelancer uses personal time to achieve results. Rarely delegates. See the limitation of time.

See more on delegating + staying in your zone of genius in this article. 

✅ A CEO knows their numbers (profit margin, COGS, closing ratios, etc). Resourceful.

⚠️ A freelancer considers their earnings to be all their own money – no distinction between business  & personal funds.

✅ A CEO focuses on leadership, building a team, solving problems, & scaling.

⚠️ A freelancer focuses on client retention, increasing hourly rates, technical skills, & time management.

7 Benefits of Planning from a CEO Perspective

  1. Forces you to look at the previous year & see what needs to improve and what is working well. 
  2. Helps you to build STRATEGY for your business (a real plan) 
  3. Gives you a worldview perspective of your business (getting in the weeds = limiting) 
  4. Helps you to see your capacity, such as: 
    • How many launches you can have
    • How many projects you can do
    • How many builds you can do
  5. Helps you to plan for vacation & rest 
  6. Helps you to spread out your “pitch” focus & know when to run specials 
  7. Gives you a plan to work from rather than just shooting from the hip
