So I know I throw this term around a lot- Girl Boss. But now that I think about it, I never really explained what exactly a girl boss is, or rather I say who she is. A girl boss is a dreamer chaser, a goal achiever, one who pushes herself to accomplish anything. She is determined, yet kind. Success hungry. Eager. Ambitious. But, that is not to say she does not fail sometimes. She uses the obstacles in her life to make her stronger. Epic setbacks are her motivation. She really is the boss of her own life. Let’s here what the original girl boss Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal, has to say:
“Someone who is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it. As a #GIRLBOSS, you take control and accept responsibility. You’re a fight- you know when to throw punches and when to roll with them…”
So, with that being said. Are you a girl boss? In today’s post I chose my top five biggest and baddest girl bosses throughout history. These five women inspire me. They are role models that push me to not only chase, but fight for my dreams. Take a look!! As always, thanks so much for reading . XO, MK.
