Girl boss: So the term girl boss has been blowing up the scene! It’s a phrase that’s meant to empower women, up lift and push women to strive for that ultimate boss status. And while us ladies are striving for that girl boss life, it’s also important to surround yourself with like minded girl bosses as well!
It’s important to find that tribe that aligns with your views and goals. More importantly, you want to be part of a group of friends that UPLIFT and encourage you. Friendship shouldn’t be about competing. It’s not centered in jealousy or greed. A real friendship takes joy from your friends success, it celebrates accomplishments and provides support and encouragement.
As a women trying to build an online business this is even more crucial. And ladies, those of you who are bloggers and are trying to get your hustle on, this is for you!
Bloggers and Their Girl Boss Tribe
This goes out to all my other blogger babes out there: Get yourself a girl boss tribe. What does this mean? Blogging can seem like an overwhelming thing sometimes. Sometimes you feel like you’re constantly drowning, you’re doing the most but not seeing the results you want. You look at other bloggers and think, ” Why is that not happening to me?”. But here’s the thing, you need to STOP comparing yourself and start surrounding yourself with positivity.
First off, don’t make it a competition. Stop comparing and start focusing. When you have that group of friends (girl bosses) they’ll be able to ground you and get you on the right track. When you’re feeling overwhelmed by something they should be the ones to lift you up and inspire you to make strives.
We’re all in this together so your blogger girl bosses can relate to your struggles. They’ve either been there and done or are currently going through it. Your blogger babes should be there for you when you need help, are feeling overwhelmed, uninspired, and just down in the dumps.
- What are your goals? What is it you’re looking to achieve?
- How to you want to grow and improve?
- What is important to you?
- Are there things you need to improve on?
- What are you doing to make these things happen?
Your girl boss tribe should be in the same zone as you, with similar goals and have a very similar mindset.
When I really got into blogging, I was doing it alone. And boy did I feel overwhelmed sometimes. I felt like I was doing so much and doing it alone sucked. I ended up joining a blogger network which helped me to connect with local bloggers.
This CHANGED the blogging game for me. I was able to learn from these girls and grow not only as a blogger but as an individual. I met inspiring ladies that pushed me to be fearless and put my best foot forward.
Having that support is invaluable and will only do you GOOD in the end.
Your Everyday Girl Boss Tribe
Obviously not all of us are bloggers but having that support system for the everyday women is important as well. As I reach my late twenties, my goals and just over all outlook on life has changed. I realize the importance of quality over quantity which holds true in the realm of friendship.
My girlfriends are super stars who hustle. They appreciate that hustle and encourage me to do the same. Adulthood is real people. In the words of one of the greatest rappers alive, DMX, ” You think this is a game?”. There are bills to be paid, groceries to be bought, kitchens to clean… the list goes on. AND on top of that we’re either furthering our careers or trying to find our calling, which by the way, you don’t have to know your calling yet.
As I get older, I don’t want to be around people who complain or bring down my spirits. We’re all going through something; we all have our struggles. Our friends are there to help us, yes BUT being a punching bag for emotional distress is hard. Our girl boss tribe is there to hold our hands when we need it but also snap us back into shape.
Surround yourself with people that inspire you and motivate you. Remember, friendship is never a competition. Take joy in your friends successes and hopefully they celebrate your own as well.
Do you have a girl boss tribe? What are some of your goals that your friends encourage you on?
Until next time,
