I read a quote today that came up on my Instagram and it really spoke volumes to me
“When you become the image of your own imagination, it's the most powerful thing you could ever do."- RuPaul.
I was so inspired by this quote and couldn’t help but feel to write a short blog on a couple of people and that have been highly motivating for me lately as a creative and starting a small business on their own. Hopefully I’m able put some people on to some creative helpful people that I've found that keep me going and to stay motivated.
Lately I’ve taken a giant leap on pushing forward with my career goals of starting my own fashion styling business. And I had to make some pretty big decisions in the last month or so, but even in the short amount of time, I can see positive things that have been popping up and showing me signs that I have made the right decision to focus on my business full time. I also think this comes down to seeing myself in my imagination of who I want to be and just by keeping that vision in my mind strong, it has brought on so much determination and energy.
I'm always on the look out for inspiring women that are strong, creative, independent and daring. So I thought I'd share my two favourite girl boss inspirations.
1.CARA ALWILL LEYBA
Life Coach, Author and all round pink haired boss lady babe.
I first found out about Cara from a close friend of mine, that put me onto her podcast titled, “ Style your mind” which is all about encouraging women to celebrate themselves and making happiness a priority. I was instantly hooked! I listened to episode after episode, all while I was working each day at my desk at my old job, just dreaming away. I had a few moments at my desk where I would have tears in my eyes just from listening to Cara and realising that someone else out there thinks like me and made her dreams her reality. It’s truely inspiring. If you are one of those people that dreams of making a career out of your creative passion and sticking it to the man, then Cara is your girl!
Just type in the Podcast app on your phone ‘ Style your mind’ or if you prefer reading her Self published book for ‘Style your Mind’ also available online
Creator of Nasty Gal
Sophia Amoruso is the owner and creator of the online store called Nasty Gal. She is a self made millionaire and it all started with a small shop on eBay selling vintage clothing she found and re worked and sold online! If you have Netflix, chances are you may have seen the show come up titled “ Girl Boss” this show was loosely based on Sophia’s story on starting Nasty Gal vintage...I know I binged watched the entire show in one day. This show instantly inspired me AGAIN...to start focusing on my goals and ideas for my business. It was like looking into a tv screen, and seeing myself in so many parts of her character, I could really could relate to her drive, passion and outlook on the world. The styling and the music of the show is also why I was so addicted. So many amazing vintage clothing pieces! So if you are looking for a some visual stimulation and a career in fashion, give this show a watch!
