To all of my fellow #GIRLBOSS babes, take a moment to celebrate!! That’s right, you rock girlfriend. It can be so easy to get discouraged as an entrepreneur, so I wanted to take a moment and share my favorite must-haves to stay motivated!
BUT FIRST COFFEE.
Every #GIRLBOSS needs a chic mug to sip in style. What’s inside is totally up to you, but as for me… I like to start my day with green tea, transition into coffee (quite a few cups to be exact) and somehow by the end of the night there’s this yummy red juice [not for kids] that I sip on until bedtime. #dontjudge
If you aren’t waking up to positive affirmations, I highly encourage you to take 5 minutes of your day and do so. I start my mornings browsing Pinterest & Instagram for positive motivation before even getting out of bed. My favorite IG accounts are: bossbabe.inc, iamcarriegreen and then of course all things Pinterest! One-up yourself and print out a few of your faves to frame. Here’s a link for free printables: Your Welcome!
Now, I can’t be the only one obsessed with planners, washi tape, stickers and gel pens… right? It’s the best way to stay organized, while channeling your inner craftiness. This is my Happy Planner, that I purchased for just $10 at Michaels. BEWARE, the planner aisle is dangerous. #iwarnedyou
I am the queen of lists. I list my daily tasks by the hour, I write down my grocery list (I know, no apps for this girl), and I even list things to put on my list for the next day! Crazy? Maybe, or maybe I just enjoy the feeling of checking off things which totally makes me feel accomplished. Or the opposite when absolutely nothing gets checked off… hmm. Target’s dollar spot is my mid-day vacation, for all things lists! You’re bound to leave with ten additional #GIRLBOSS items not mentioned in this post. Oops!
Now, I don’t mean, cake your face up every morning, but I do mean get pretty for absolutely no one but yourself. Especially, if you run your business from home, stay in those sweats and oversized shirt, but get your happy face on. Find a beauty regime that best fits you… as for me, I like the natural look, but rock a bold lipstick like a boss! You may be wondering why I’m even mentioning this as a motivational must-have, so here’s the deal: How many times have you tried to take a selfie (for your business duh) and you’re like, “YIKES!” Or how about when the UPS guy knocks on your door (for business deliveries of course) and you’re looking and now feeling like a hot mess. Or better yet, what about when your hubby comes home… don’t you want to at least look like you’ve got your shit together? Who’s with me??
“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”
