Just because you started the company does not mean having CEO or President on your card will give you certain rights or privledges. If you are an entreprenuer and you are the only person in your company, your real job is account executive or sales. As you begin to hire people in your company you will gradually promote yourself to CEO or President. No matter who you are you will always start at the ground floor of the company. Make sure your job title on your card reflects your actions and not the result you intend. This change will also humble you which is what many entreprenuers need to survive. CEO is earned.
