Getting employees to think like business owners is a challenge many entrepreneurs don’t even know how to put into words. Instead, they say things like: Why can’t my employees take their work seriously? Why don’t they care as much as me? What am I doing wrong? The reason your team isn’t feeling motivated could be because they don’t feel like owners. And when people don’t feel invested in things, they usually leave. Sure, employee equity, bonuses, and unlimited vacation are the fixes you might expect. But there’s a little-known employee retention secret that the best business owners don’t always talk about: The importance of putting employees in your business-owner shoes. We talked to small business owners to find out how they make their employees think and act like owners. Then, we asked those same people to tell us how they encourage their talented employees to stick around.
We asked small business owners to describe how they encourage an ownership mindset in their companies—and pulled out three things you can do to help you unbox that same feeling in your own office.

It’s known that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen follow a very strict diet: 20% protein, 80% vegetables, and rarely a tomato in sight. What Tom and Giselle avoid may be contributing to your intractable migraine.
Most Americans suffer from back pain. It affects our day-to-day life, our sleep and of course our happiness. But what if our pain, and degenerative effects of aging on our spine, could be virtually eliminated—or completely prevented?
200 million Americans experience lower back pain. One-third of American adults say it’s affected their ability to perform daily tasks, and over half spend their work day sitting. One common cause of lower back pain—especially in those of us who work at a computer—is the way we sit. Contrary to what you may have been taught, good posture is a little more involved than sitting up straight with your chest puffed out. If you’re doing it right, just sitting down requires the active engagement of the muscles in your core.

We’re not going to pretend there is any virtue in suffering or value to sugarcoating it. Migraine is pain, and lots of it. And yet. Consider for a moment that you and the refractory migraine actually have something in common. No matter how excruciating the migraine is, how long it lasts, or how often it returns, no matter how exhausted you are physically and emotionally, you endure. It’s awful to withstand, and somehow you do it. Every time.

Cereal started as a health food. There was a belief that indigestion was caused by eating too much meat and spices, and that heavy, indulgent foods taken at breakfast led to indigestion and sin. Cereal would keep people healthier and more pure. Kellogg did not start the cereal company—in fact it was his brother—but he had a patient by the name of CW Post who who did.
