If you’re working on your side hustle ’til the break of dawn and surviving off caffeine alone, I’d say you’re part of an exclusive club called The #GirlBoss. Most times, your inner determination motivates you to keep going. But, sometimes you need a little extra boost to remind yourself you can do it. We get it! Here are some #girlboss books we recommend reading this year:
The title of this book says it all. Amoruso, who was a dumpster diver before starting her clothing empire, Nasty Gal, speaks volumes about finding success regardless of your background. Don’t have a college education? No worries. Amoruso believes success isn’t achieved by graduating with a degree but, instead, following your heart. (Of course, a college education is great, too).
Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, wrote Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead back in 2013. The book delves into topics surrounding women in the workplace, in particular, why there are still fewer women in leadership positions. The book takes an interesting twist by exploring why women are the ones holding themselves back from a successful career. Are you one of those women? Read her book to find out.
Looking for a book to help you improve your online brand and social media presence? You need to read Leave Your Mark. Licht, a social media expert, shares insights on being a fashion publicist as well as tips and tricks for achieving both work and life success. Even though this book is for everyone, it’s a must-read for anyone in the marketing, communications or public relations industry.
