Some of these girl boss quotes I created are simply amazing. They’re inspiring, sassy, and even savage. No boring quotes here!

What Is A Girl boss?

Many women are bosses, but what exactly is a girl boss? According to the Urban Dictionary,

“A girl boss is in charge and takes command of the situation.”

Urban Dictionary

Not all bosses are lumped into the same category regardless of gender. Some women take charge and go the extra mile. When you walk into a women-owned or operated business, you can tell who is in charge. The person seems to have it all together and looks very self-confident. She’s hard-working, motivated, badass and so determined that she exudes self-confidence. She’s kind, independent, and very inspirational.

How To Have a Boss Lady Attitude

1. Mindset

A boss-lady will have a positive attitude and maintain control; even when things go south, she can manage the situation like a boss. There are no obstacles too big. She’s very professional and able to take command at a moment’s notice. She’s positive and engaging.

2. Associate With Like-Minded People

There’s an old saying that “You are as good as the company that you keep.” If you keep company with a skunk, you’re going to stink. If you keep company with roses, you’ll smell perfect.

3. Set High Standards And Keep Them High

A girl boss already knows everyone is watching her. So, she will set her standards and teach those around her how to maintain high standards and keep them high.

How Can I Be a Better Girl Boss?

1. Have a Morning Routine

While not everyone is an early riser, a girl boss knows she needs to get her practice going early. So she’ll be awake early and ready to face her day. She will have a set morning routine that she sticks with. Take some time each day, or the night before, to prioritize your to-dos and jot down at least three things that need to be accomplished for the day ahead.

2. Work Towards Your Goals

Setting and achieving goals is as easy as breaking them into manageable tasks. First, she will plan; if she fails to plan, she will fail to succeed. She will use the SMART method to be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-bounded. She will know her goals and be focused on achieving them throughout the project.

3. Have a Journal

Maintaining a journal is an ideal way for her to keep track of her life. She will have her journal at her fingertips to refer to her list of ideas and notes as required throughout her day.

4. Have Confidence

A girl boss will have plenty of self-confidence. She will be confident that everything will work out as planned, even if those plans go awry.

5. Prioritize Self-Care

Before she can care for others, she must first care for herself. Just like a parent getting a child ready to go to school, she must get herself up and go; then she can get everyone else up and go. Next, she must take some time each day for herself. The first 30 minutes to an hour each day should be spent planning her day and taking some time to herself. She will also take some time in the evening just for her. This will help her to stay focused, calm, and unwind after a hard day.

6. Girl Boss Quotes No. 19

boss babe quotes

I love this quote because I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t take my friends advice to stop procrastinating and start doing.

When I was working at my job a couple years back to become debt free, I was ready to do just about anything to earn some extra cash.

One problem though…

It was taking time away from my boyfriend, family and friends. As a full-time coordinator at an advertising agency, I didn’t WANT to spend more time away from enjoying life.

But as a full-timer, working 40+ hours and making a small salary, I also desperately needed to increase my income.

It wasn’t until I turned my hobby blog to a business that I realized how AMAZING it was to be my own boss. I took the initiative and was able to build the tomorrow I wanted and now I’m living my best life. Blogging has allowed me to earn good money (I make thousands each month) AND work from home on my own time.

This blogging thing sure would’ve come in handy when I was searching for a side hustle in college, haha!!!

positive girl boss quotes

You can’t do epic shit with basic people, whether you’re…

  • Starting a business
  • Getting a new job
  • Buying a new home
  • Saving money
  • Getting married
  • and etc.

While you’re building and growing in life, attract people who are doing the same. Surround yourself with people who are already doing epic shit and wants to see you win in life.

Don’t give anymore time and energy on people who can’t even grasp the basic concepts in life.

If your current tribe isn’t getting you going and excelling, it’s time to find a new tribe that will.
