Books That Will Bring out Your Inner Girl Boss


The rise of girl bosses is real. I can’t tell you how many success stories I’ve read or heard of women starting from the very bottom and working their way up to million or even BILLION dollar companies. Because of the overall inequality of the sexes and the gross sexual harassment in the workplace, I will never get tired of reading about women becoming their own bosses and shifting the way the modern American workplace is ran forever.

Whether you want to go in the direction of blogging, selling skin care products, creating a chic clothing line, or even a catering business, you will find yourself feeling like you are walking through hell in the first stages of your business or company. When the success isn’t real for you as it is for others right then and there, it seems so much easier to give up and call it a day. Especially when you’re browsing on social media and seeing others with a similar business as you racking up and satisfying thousands or even millions of customers, or having a large audience who supports them.

You’re getting desperate, probably even wondering why you started this business in the first place. When those kinds of thoughts come to mind, it just means you’re feeling unmotivated and lacking enthusiasm and inspiration. It’s often hard to get those same feelings of devotion and excitement you had when you first thought of or even started working on your business, but you’ve come too far to give up now. I’d love to lecture you and tell you what would’ve happened if this founder & CEO and that founder & CEO gave up on their company, but we’ll never know because THEY DIDN’T.

Those addicting and invigorating feels of motivation and enthusiasm will soon invade your soul again and get you back to feeling good about your company. Inspiration is the #1 helpful and free tool that so many successful business owners and company founders rely on. You’ve got to personally educate yourself on the ups and the downs and the all-arounds of being a business woman. Reading up on other girl bosses is one of the best past times to have as a girl boss.
