Why It Is Important To Be A #GirlBoss

Why It Is Important To Be A #GirlBoss

It is time to take your passions to the next level and become the #GirlBoss you've always wanted to be.

I am the next #GirlBoss...are you?

Sophia Amoruso, the Author of the very famous book #GirlBoss, takes her stand on the importance of being a bad a** woman in the working world against the sea of men.

"Don't let The Man get to you. OK? Cool. Then let's do this," Sophia Amoruso.

I am here to share and speak the importance of learning how to be a #GirlBoss.

We are taught all the proper manners at a young age, shown the best way to dress and get upset when we chip a nail...yeah right.

It is our time. To all the ladies who feel the passion within their blood and see a path that has been calling your name, it is time to go get it. It starts with learning to grow past our insecurities that have been brought upon us and OWN whatever we have to offer to be a #GirlBoss.

As a woman, it can be difficult to take our potential and expand it out into the world. Your creative and strong mind is ready for you to embrace your power and show everyone what you are made of.

Are you a #GirlBoss already?

Do you work so hard for what you love that you are constantly trying to find new innovative ways to do it?

Is your work never done? Not because you don't complete it, but you love it so much you want to make it perfect, make it be YOU. Is your hustle real? Do you work and work and work until your heels quit too? If you have a dream and you go after it, you mean business.

Are you sharing your journey with others? #GirlBosses in the present are proud and determined to make a name, brand, and life for themselves. Not only that, but they don't want to do it alone. They want support, love and an audience to embrace the hard work they are doing.

You embrace the struggle. The struggle of your dream taking a long, long time. The struggle of late nights, many jobs and always trying to stay ahead of the game.

Any of this speaking to you? If not, no worries you can still become a #GirlBoss as long as you have a goal, passion, and a dream you want to see come to life.

Tips from Sophia Herself:

1. Mistakes will get you everywhere

You need to make mistakes to push towards your dream. You need to constantly be challenging yourself so you grow as not only a person and woman but a leader.

2. Be you

As women, we have the power to be sweet, charming and caring. When people see the other side, the strong and brave, it is empowering and not only will you look fearless but you will feel fearless.

3. Work hard and work harder

The harder you work for something you enjoy..the more in love you will fall with your passions. What is better than loving what you do?

We all have dreams. We all have goals. But, there are #GirlBosses that push beyond all limits to show their strength and dedication to the world. The world needs more #GirlBosses. I am ready...are you?

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.
