Ladies..isn’t it an amazing time to be a woman right now? We’re living in the rise of #GirlBosses – sparked by Sophia Amaruso’s famous book. It is a detailing story about her road from a minimum wage employee to a multi-million dollar business empire.
This generation of women has stepped up as #GirlBosses, or #WRITTENWomen as we have deemed them, and pushed beyond all limits. Their dedication to success, drive for creativity, hard work ethic, and determination is contagious. We (women as a collective) have arrived at the realization that we can do and be anything. Praise!
There are so many incredible women who have created super successful businesses from scratch. Now, these women are living a life doing what they love, and on their own terms, we might add.
Today I want to share their journeys and incredible stories to hopefully inspire you to make your dreams a reality. Write your story. Tell your story.
Here are just a few of the #GirlBosses we can’t get enough of right now:
Despite Nasty Gal’s recent filing for bankruptcy, the reigning Queen and creator of the #GirlBoss movement doesn’t appear to be putting the brakes on anytime soon.
Since setting up her fashion brand Nasty Gal on eBay and growing it to a multi-million dollar online clothing business, she has also found time to write a best-selling book, launch the #GirlBoss Foundation (which awards financial grants to women in the worlds of design, fashion, music and the arts) and recently had a movie made about her life story.

Truth is, all of these women were just ordinary people with a dream..like you and me.
Everything and anything is possible…especially as a #WRITTENWoman.
