Whenever I’m in need of a little inspiration, I look at the list of #GirlBosses I look up to, and once I see how much they have accomplished, my motivation and drive kicks right back in. I love listening to podcasts, watching interviews, reading articles about women entrepreneurs. I am always curious as to how they started, and the steps that they have taken to build the platforms that they have today.
I’m sure most of you have probably heard of her, and/or read her book, but after reading Sophia’s book, #Girlboss, I can definitely say that I was inspired to the max! She started off selling clothing through Ebay, and created Nasty Gal. She’s seen struggle as Nasty Gal filed for bankruptcy in November of 2016. That did not stop her at all though — she has created her own media company Girlboss. I love keeping up with her weekly podcasts, and articles.
PS: She also has her own Netflix series — go check it out!
You might know her best through her beauty brand, Huda Beauty. She started off her career in Finance, and completely switched over when she came to the realization that it was not for her, and it was not a subject she was passionate about. She then went and followed her passion, and has created a beauty empire.
In the video below she shares her complete story, and it is something I’ll go back to and watch when I need a little motivation:
Brittany started Brit+Co, at just 25 years old (that’s almost my age!), leaving a comfortable job at Google, and took a bet on herself and started her own business. Brit+Co is a media company that fosters creativity to women and encourages them to take control in every aspect of their lives.
In the podcast below she shares how she started the successful company Brit+Co is today:
Reading the stories women entrepreneurs, especially those who have created their business from scratch is so empowering — especially to younger girls.
