Even if you don’t realize it, you have boss lady power moments every day. Whether it’s something small, like speaking your mind at work, or something big like a promotion, there’s a boss lady in all of us. Boss ladies come in all shapes and sizes, but have one thing in common: they run sh*t. A boss lady can literally mean a lady boss in a work space, but our definition of boss lady is a woman who gets life done, whether that be at work, at home, in an office, with their coworkers, family, dog, cat, friends, etc. Boss ladies are those who enthusiastically embrace new opportunities and lift each other up. Boss ladies know when one woman wins, we all win. No matter what you do, or who you are, you have the power to call yourself a boss lady.
Even if you’re already at ultimate boss lady status, it never hurts to learn helpful tips from fellow boss ladies. Here are some words of wisdom and advice from Armoire members and designers who inspire us.
Lisa Sun, CEO, Gravitas
Lisa Sun is the CEO of Gravitas, a clothing brand emphasizing confidence. Lisa’s advice: “Pay yourself a compliment. At the same time, have self-awareness about what you’re the best at in the world. We all have at least a few superpowers we need to embrace. We’re the hardest on ourselves, so paying ourselves a compliment is a real hurdle to tackle in life.”
Rebekah Adams, Founder, Poppyseed
Rebekah Adams is the founder of Poppyseed, clothing that changes with the seasons of life (because we are always changing). Her advice: “Don’t be afraid of hard work, this is your dream after all. Ask for help when you need it. Make sure your work helps others. Remember that you have a unique voice and were put on this planet for a reason. Be you.”
Danna Redmond, Co-Founder & CEO, HeyThrivvy
Danna Redmond is the Co-Founder and CEO of HeyThrivvy, a tech enabled personal concierge. Her advice: “Make a plan and go for it. Don’t let self-doubt or hesitation hold you back from your career goals.”
Even if you’re not the CEO of a company, you are the CEO of your life and that is reason enough to be a certified boss lady. Taking advice from other women and sharing tips will make us all more successful in the end. So on your boss lady journey don’t forget to pay yourself a compliment, ask for help, but also speak your mind and just go for it. Women helping women is the most powerful way to continue the boss lady power movement.
