The Things No One Tells You About Becoming A Girl Boss

The Things No One Tells You About Becoming A Girl Boss

Girl bosses are someone we often look up to and admire them for their success. We just love following them and wish to be like them too in the future. They seem to have everything in control, live a nice lifestyle, wear amazing fashion outfits and appear so fashionably chic. However, as much as we admire them, there are things that no one tells you about becoming a girl boss. Yes, they had to muster up the courage to quit their job and start something from scratch but what goes through their mind? Let’s take a look inside the hurdles of girl bosses out there and what you can learn from them before you start becoming one yourself!

  1. Self-doubt

Any girl bosses would have the moment when they feel some self-doubt especially if the feedback to a certain product, service or project is slow. Whether you start an online business or a store, sometimes you wonder are people not interested in what you are offering or just lost. We start to doubt our ideas and tend to wait eagerly or the customer’s response.

2. It’s okay to be vulnerable

Just know that it is okay to show your vulnerability at times. You do not have to put a strong face and act sophisticated all the time. Sometimes showing a little of your vulnerable side makes others feel more comfortable to work with you which is a plus for you and the business.

3. Do not compare your hustle

Due to the existence of social media, it is hard to not compare your hustle to your competitors. You start stalking their website, gallery and social media platforms to observe how they are doing. There is nothing wrong in checking them out but never compare your business to them in a negative way especially if you are just starting up. Take it as a way to improve your business and start your action from there.

4. The Struggle is Real

Nothing comes easy in this life and that includes girl bosses. Girl bosses also have to face challenges, being rejected, saying the word ‘No’ all the time and having to deal with the disappointment at times. But with determination, effort and hard work, anything can be achieved. All you need is patience and go through those hurdles with a positive attitude to gain success.

5. Keep Your Support Crew

You know who your support crew is as these people are the ones who will always have your back even during your deepest low points in life. Family, partner or best friends tend to be our most loyal support crew that will never doubt your moves and never fails to push you towards success.
