The true definition of a Girl Boss | A woman in control, taking charge of her own circumstances in work & life. Someone who knows her worth and won’t accept anything less. She is not a “mean girl” in fact, she hates “mean girls.” She is empowering and inspiring to those around her. She kicks ass!
We can all recognize a girl boss when we see one. She carries herself with confidence and without fear of failure. She doesn’t fear failure because she knows it’s inevitable. She takes failure and uses it to drive her to be better the next time. I asked our very own Girl Boss and owner of E+S, Jamie, about what being a Girl Boss entails.
#1 Drive: The ability to take control of your own life. If you work hard at your passions, then you can create your own destiny. She wants to inspire others to be the best version of themselves and to follow their dreams.
#2 Confidence: Especially in what you’re doing. Because you will fail, but you have to pick yourself up and keep on moving (even when things aren’t going your way). If you let failure get to you, it will bring you down and it won’t be an easy fight to get back up.
#3 ALWAYS be yourself: “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” –Herman Melbille. It’s totally okay to draw inspiration from others, but you have to take the inspiration and make it your own.
#4 Daily Routine: Although every Girl Boss would love to have a daily routine, this industry doesn’t really allow that. Every day brings a new challenge and sparks a new idea. The day never ends…the brainstorming of ideas starts as soon as the alarm clock goes off and they keep coming until bedtime (and even then the ideas continue). This is what drives me to wake up in the morning to handle business and put those ideas into reality.
#5 Character: Empowerment is a major key to being a Girl Boss. Uplifting other women to succeed in their dreams is so important. As women, we can sometimes get blind-sided in the evils of judgment and comparison. We have to make sure we correct that and set the right example for our future Girl Boss’s to love themselves and others.
Always remember ladies, if you do what you love, you will never have to work another day in your life!
