Simply Stylist Session: Becoming Your Own Girl Boss
The only thing harder than being your own #GirlBoss is actually getting started! Although it is easy to feel overwhelmed when starting a business, it is important to not be deterred by legal jargon and seemingly endless paperwork. Instead of focusing on the negatives, figure out what steps you need to take and learn how to get it done with ease… Easier said than done, right? Our next Session at the Grove is the perfect opportunity to learn everything you need to know about becoming your own girl boss from business mavens who’ve been in your shoes! We’ve enlisted Sarah Boyd of Simply Inc., Elena Hansen of SWIM SOCIAL, and Julie Solomon of OMG! Publicity to take attendees through all of the tips and tricks they’ve learned from being #GirlBosses!
Join us this Saturday as we let our inner entrepreneurs thrive with this amazing course all about business, and don't forget to check out our Q&A with Sarah Boyd, Elena Hansen, and Julie Solomon below:
Sarah Boyd, Founder of Simply Inc.
SS: What does the term ‘Girl Boss’ mean to you? Dedication. It makes you feel like you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. However, being a girl boss isn't about money, status, or anything like that. Instead, it is a group of women who are motivated, driven, and ready to take on anything the world throws at them!
SS: Why is it important to educate others on becoming a girl boss? It is hard to know what you need to do until you've been in those shoes. There is no 'How To' guide for starting your own business, and it can be very overwhelming once you realize the amount of work that goes into establishing yourself as a new company. We want this Session to be a resource for women who have big dreams but aren't sure of the exact steps they need to take to get there!
Elena Hansen, Founder of Swim Social
SS: What does the term ‘Girl Boss’ mean to you? I think of an unstoppable force. A girl that takes every opportunity to learn and grow, filling her days with meaningful thoughts and conversations. She approaches her work with a grace that only a woman can exude. She is patient with people but expects the best from others because she expects the best from herself. She leads by example.
SS: Name 3 qualities a person needs to run a company. Patience. Perseverance. Empathy.
SS: Looking back on your journey, is there anything you wish you could tell your 20-year-old self? I would tell her to form great habits, both personally and professionally, and encourage her to network more. I would also tell her to stay single as long as possible, and put that energy towards herself. :)
Julie Solomon, Co-Owner and Chief Publicist of OMG! Publicity
SS: What does the term ‘Girl Boss’ mean to you? Girl Boss means being connected, confident, leader and independent.
SS: Can you talk about the moment you realized you were destined to be a Girl Boss? When I was born ;) I knew I was destined to be a Girl Boss when I realized how natural and fun networking was for me. It such a vital part of my career, and I couldn't live without it!
SS: What advice do you have for females seeking success? Women are super powerful, create life and (hopefully) become US Presidents! We each have a path. It's all about your own focus and drive, not matter what gender may seem to dominate.
