Am I a #GIRLBOSS?


I just finished reading #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amuroso and I have to say it was one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. 
I'm at a place in my life where I have to start making decisions- I'm in my last year of university and I have to decide what I'm going to do after I finish. The biggest thing that my parents told me to decide was whether I was happy staying at my university in my comfort zone and go on to get a decent job, or whether I wanted to leave Brighton and experience new things that could lead to a career. 
I've been thinking a lot about this decision and #GIRLBOSS definitely assured me that I do want to have a career, even if it means going somewhere else and doing things that may seem uncomfortable to me. 
I think the great thing about this book is that it doesn't tell you to do things Sophia's way. I know that being an entrepreneur isn't a path I want to pursue (I don't have an amazing idea for it anyway!) and I'm happy completing my education and doing things the conventional way and there's nothing wrong with that because it's the path that's right for me. What #GIRLBOSS taught me is that you need to find what works for you regardless of society conventions, you need to find something you love doing and you need to work hard. Every day.
Apart from being extremely inspirational, the book also taught me some practical things about applying for jobs, staying in a job and even losing a job. And funnily enough, the CEO of this massive clothing company taught me that you need to save money- something I suck at but am now much more inclined to do because you never know when you might need those savings!

So if you haven't read #GIRLBOSS yet then get your ass down to your local book shop and buy it- you will not regret it! Now excuse me while I open a savings account and try to stop thinking about those expensive shoes I really want...
