Hey everyone! Hey Girl-Bosses!
I am so excited and thrilled to write my first blog post on being a girl boss, that will inspire and empower the ladies to move on up to a higher level on building a career on their own..
First of all, Girl bosses aren’t suppose to be 100% perfect, rich, and have everything on point right away. It takes time! A lot of us ladies, haven’t got it all figured out, we make mistakes. We get discouraged. We get stressed. We get overwhelmed. BUT we aren’t going to let these problems define who we are anymore.
Success is a long journey, it’s not going to be easy, but once you pull through, the light will show how many bumpy roads you been through to get to where you at now.…but girl bosses are ready for anything that comes there way, and ready to see what life has to offer. So to all my soon to be girl bosses out there, here are 10 Tips on becoming a girl Boss….
#1 BRAINSTORM + PLAN
To be a boss you have to have a plan. A lot of people just jump right into being something they aren’t yet and more than likely they begin to fall off. So we can’t let that happen right?…. brainstorm on all your plans and stick to it. Make sure that on your daily work days, you have something planned out already. That means you need to get a lot of beauty rest so you can wake up and get ready to start your business/boss day. As women we like to be in control, it’s okay to admit to it, because it’s the truth. Everyday is a new opportunity, take advantage of that, not focus on what’s going on, on the other side. Be confidence in this process.
#2 ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Be confident. Feel good about yourself and what you’re doing. You already a girl boss even if you haven’t started your business yet. BUT the fact you already planning, researching, and studying to be a girl boss, you accomplished something.
#3 BE FEARLESS
No hesitation, just go for what you know and want. Give in all the hard work you can! Think about your future from now, do you see yourself making no mistakes? or do you just feel everything is going to be perfectly fine and not make any? NOT! please don’t be that sure, you will have a lot of challenges you have to battle. It’s okay to be confident because all girl bosses suppose to. BUT understand to be an entrepreneur it’s not an easy walk in the park. Don’t live with the “What ifs” and the “I give up”, I rather live with the “I can” “Lets do it” “Lets try” “OH WELL” “NEXT TIME”. I say this because you have to believe in failure, and failure will come just to test you TRUST! Nothing is more better than knowing how feisty, strong, and down to earth you are!
#4 ACCEPT FAILURE “CAUSE IT WILL HAPPEN”
I have made plenty of post discussing failure because most of us can’t accept it, or couldn’t at the time. If you are trying to be a girl boss i can tell you now that you have to accept failure. Failure isn’t a bad thing at all, perhaps it’s actually a good thing. I’m sure you heard the old school saying you will “LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES”. It’s definitely true. Failure is actually GOOD. It makes success so much worth fighting for. Easy is lame, and for people who want a hand out, BOOOO!!!! Remember you aren’t alone at all, there is women out there that is dealing with the same thing right now at this minute!
#5 TALK TO PEOPLE
To be a girl boss you have to be a people person, and if you aren’t you have to work on being one. It’s good to network with others, and associate with people who are in the same line of business you are. Also, it’s good to meet people ahead of you because they can be a lot of help and teach you some things you may not know. Holding your own in intellectual conversations is an A+ in your success. Drive people out of there heads to realize how smart and intelligent you are. You never know what open doors of opportunities might be coming your way. I’m just saying….
#6 LEARN. READ. STUDY
Learning is a life long process, so it’s always good to be talkative and willing to explore.
READ – Make sure you read a lot. If you aren’t a reader then guess what sis it’s time to get in them BOOKS! Learn and read as much as you can. There is so many ways and tips on you becoming a girl boss. Every girl boss should educate her self on how to make money in their line of business, and what can they do, or what do they need to get prepared. Their are books out there just for that.
STUDY – Make sure you study. Take all the notes you can, take all the screen shots you can, just make sure you are putting more knowledge in your head day by day. You have to be a master mind or train yourself to be one. Being smart and showing it off is a A+! Know your SHIT!
#7 EARLY BIRD
Your determined to be in the entrepreneur field now, so you definitely need rest. Especially if you suffer from insomnia like me which is hard to go to sleep early. Now i am working on my sleeping schedule. Go to sleep more early, wake up early and get things done. Also, even though when you are your own boss your working towards being self employed, you have to make sure your mind/body is ready for early meetings, and any other important things that have to be done business hours. If you wake up early, you have to eat a good healthy breakfast, time to do a quick work out, time to make your morning coffee instead of late in the night so much.
Your health is important. Who am i to talk? Yea i know… at first i didn’t take my health seriously, and actually it kind of made me lose hope in furthering my dreams because i started to get really lazy. Now that i know health is important, i am on it! If you are always getting ill then the best thing for you to do is stay on your vitamins, healthy drinks, healthy foods, veggies, fruit and much more. We need vitamins in our body, and we have to keep our immune system in good health. What if your business require traveling? so keeping up with your health is so important. Work out a couple times out the week. I work out a couple times of week due to my mental health issues, i suffer from depression and anxiety so when i work out it definitely makes me feel much better.
#9 MAKE OFFICE SPACE IN YOUR HOME
I feel that making an office space in your place of living is perfect and convenient. Having your own office space just looks so much professional and legit. Especially if you work from home, and you need your own little space for your notes, computer/laptop, and whatever else. It makes your girl boss attitude 10X confident. Also, when you walk into your office space you know automatically it’s time to work and get things done. I promise it will make your life way more organized.
#10 MAKE TIME FOR YOUR SELF
Making time out for yourself is important. Like reading a book, watching your favorite t.v. shows you haven’t watched in a while, cooking your favorite dish, going out to the movies, or even leaving town for a couple days. With me working a regular job and still building a business from scratch sometimes is very stressful, so when i get overwhelmed i just shut down. I will go two months without talking to people like that, and just staying to myself trying to get my mind together. Pampering yourself is important but i definitely recommend to just pick 1 day out the week to pamper yourself while you are still building or working on your business. Your physical and mental health is so important.
#11 HAVE A ROUTINE/SCHEDULE
Having a routine is definitely needed. You have to make sure you plan out things you need to get done, Self discipline will keep you from having a brain that is scattered everywhere. Organized comes with being a girl boss. Make sure you have a schedule and a list of all your weekly plans in your planner so you can stay on top of all your work and priorities.
Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy at all. Sometimes, it’s not set up for everyone neither. You have to be prepared of the do’s and don’t, and what can everything turn out to be later down the line. It takes hard work, long nights/early mornings, to be whoever that you got set in your mind to be. It’s going to be difficult, and no matter how defeated you are don’t think that failure isn’t possible, because it is. I have gave up so many times, i have fell off so many times, i even been through the stage where i just felt like i was at my ending point and i just can’t do it any more. I had to let go of the negative and stay more on the positive side, and learned how to believe in myself more. Trust the process. Keep picking yourself up every time you fall, giving up should never be an option or a thought. You have to know your worth before anybody else knows it.
