MR CORPO explains why bosses aren't allowed to party and he also makes an open call for anyone interested in becoming an assistant to the MR CORPO world of books, podcasts and publishing.
JUSTIN: You gotta fight! For your right! To party!
JUSTIN: Hello, and welcome to an especially short but an especially important Mr. Corpo episode. I have two topics I want to talk about today. The first is why you, as a boss, need to leave the party early. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but people do not want to party with you. There are a lot of great things about being a boss, but one of the things that sucks is that you can't -- you shouldn't -- party with your team anymore.
It's okay to get the party started. Actually, it's important that you grease the wheels by buying the first round. But after that, do yourself a favor, do your team a favor, and remove yourself from the equation.
JUSTIN: As Peter Parker's uncle reminds us, with great power comes great responsibility. And in this case, your responsibility is to get out of the way so your team can party without their boss, looking over their shoulder. High school parties would have sucked if your mom and dad were sitting in the corner, watching your every move. And guess what? In this situation, you are the mom and dad. So leave the party early.
Alright, that's my advice from the Mr. Corpo podcast today. The second thing I wanted to talk about is, I wanted to officially announce I am in search of an assistant. If anyone out there is interested in working for Mr. Corpo, I am looking for an assistant. It's going to be up to five hours a week. I'm going to pay 20 dollars an hour. Focus mainly is on social media, generating leads for book sales and talks. And I'm also willing to offer a percent of sales of anything that you generate.
And you get a chance to work with me. You get to learn about the publishing industry. You get to learn about being an author. And hopefully we can make this thing really big. So an open call for anyone that's interested in becoming the assistant of Mr. Corpo. You don't have to be in New York City. It might be slightly preferable, but I'm open to young, hungry, even old and hungry people, who are savvy on social media, who can help me get my message out, and have a few extra hours a day to learn and work together.
So hopefully some people will come and reach out to me. Hit me on firstname.lastname@example.org. Or hit me up at Instagram at JDKJDKJDKJDK. And it is a requirement that you have read the book. You must have read the book, How To Write An Email, because that tells you exactly how I like to work with other people, and I want other people to work with me. So if you're going to apply, make sure you read the book first. And the email you send me is a reflection of whether I'm going to want to work with you or not. So take some care, write a good email, and hopefully we'll get some people interested.
That's it from today's episode. Check out anything else you want at mrcorpo.com, and otherwise, that's all we got this week.
