3 Entrepreneurs Who Provide Endless Girlboss Inspiration


We live in a day in age where women have the freedom to do and be whatever they want and this has resulted in some headstrong, powerful women to excel in what they do and make a name for themselves despite criticism and struggles that got thrown their way. I think it's so important to support other women and congratulate their successes, especially as women tend to have a label of being jealous of other women - something we need to work together and change the perception of. So in honour of International Women's Day I've chosen 3 female entrepreneurs who provide endless girlboss inspiration to show that anything is achievable if you put hard work and focus into it! (And that we don't need no men to help us get there!)


PATRICIA BRIGHT

Recently there has been a lot of attention on the struggles of becoming a black influencer after certain YouTubers and Instagram stars have come out and shared their experiences. Despite this, Patricia Bright has managed to become a brand in her own right and rack up an impressive following of 2.7 million YouTube subscribers, close to 1m Instagram followers and be featured in magazines such as Glamour and campaigns with brands such as Bobbi Brown!

Patricia is very open about how she faced judgement from those at work and others when they found out about her online presence, something which she tried to keep a secret at first, and uses her experience to help others build confidence in what they do. She is both beauty and brains as she holds an accounting and finance degree and doesn't let that go to waste as she uses it to educate others on how they should invest and save their money (YouTube videos that I have watched many times and are so helpful!)

Along with being a highly successful entrepreneur who it has been said makes 6 figures a year, she is also a wife and a mother to a gorgeous baby girl. Patricia recently came out with a book this year, Heart and Hustle, which contains her story and tips on building a brand and achieving your dreams. Definitely one to read and definitely a woman to watch!

MICHELLE OBAMA

Michelle Obama is the true definition of a girlboss and is a woman who shows that success isn't measured on how much money you own or if you own your own business. 

Michelle's success is completely separate from her husbands (Barack Obama, in case you haven't already made the connection...) While her husband shows endless support for his wife, she has individually fought for what she believes in and made a name for herself by herself by campaigning for feminism, racial injustice and even childhood obesity. 

Despite her status, she is a very humble woman who is keen to show the world that she is no different or superior to others, something she has shown in her book, Becoming.

She is really a woman who fights for making the word an equal and better place for everyone and is one of the most successful black women in history. True girlboss inspiration! 


SOPHIA AMORUSO

Sophia Amoruso is the woman who made the term girlboss so famous with her book "#GirlBoss". This book inspired me so much and I recommend it to anyone who wants to start their own brand but feels overwhelmed or frightened at the concept.

In her book Sophia explains how becoming an entrepreneur and setting up her own business was never an easy ride and actually an accident! She was hired, fired, and then tried to raise extra cash by selling clothes on Ebay in her spare time - Something which rapidly increased in sales and has now turned into one of the biggest online clothing retailers, Nasty Gal.

She has a no-nonsense, straight to the point mentality which is both respectable and hilarious. She has taught millions who have read her book that being a girlboss is nowhere near easy and that most of the time you'll feel like you're getting nowhere and wont know what you're doing- but perseverance is key and dedication works off!

Her journey has also been turned into a Netflix series called, you guessed it, Girlboss. Sophia Amoruso truly lives, breathes and hustles the term. 

Who do you think is an inspiring girlboss?

  1. Love this! Women supporting women! Great choices for inspirational women, although I must admit on first glance I only really recognised Michelle Obama. I am going to go out and read all three of their books now! I also didn't realise that Sophia Amoruso started Nasty Girl (way behind on the times!)
    This might be a strange one, but I think 'Mrs Hinch' is quite inspirational. Have you heard of her? She is more or less Insta famous for sharing her cleaning tips, but she has helped so many other women like her through her channel battling with anxiety.

    Thanks for sharing!
