Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a splendid start. A weekend is a perfect opportunity to catch up on a TV show or read a good book.
I recently read #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, the owner and and founder of Nasty Gal, a multimillion dollar fashion company. By reading her book, I have learned so much, not only about female empowerment, but also a number of helpful life lessons.
1) Be assertive
I have always struggled with being assertive. It really is an important quality to acquire, and I am very jealous of those who possess this. In Amoruso's book, as a CEO of a multimillion dollar company, she has obviously had to fire people, be demanding and assertive. As she writes about her experiences,
2) Pay attention to the tiny details
As a photographer, she really made me realize that the tiniest things in an image can make or ruin your image. In #Girlboss, she write about how she posed the models and took pictures herself--hence she paid attention to the tiniest of details.
3) Stick to it
Perseverance is a crucial quality to have as a person. It is often easier said than done. I learned from #Girlboss that if you believe in it, you gotta stick to it.
4) Be confident, but not overconfident
I've learned that being a #Girlboss means you are positive and confident, but not too the point where you are cocky and arrogant.
5) You will fail
Failure is something that everyone will deal with in life. It is a horrible, but yet, a great thing to experience. You learn more through failure. Like many others, I knew this, but #Girlboss showed me how I can improve and learn.
#Girlboss makes the reader realize what potential she/he has. It is truly an inspiring and motivating book.
