For all my readers out there aspiring to be a boss babe like yours truly, I’ll let you in on a little secret – it looks cuter than it really is. Working independently isn’t all rose gold glitter and Instagram filters. It takes a lot of hard work, determination, courage and one hell of a backbone. You have to be able to say no to awesome hangout opportunities with your friends, skip out on family functions when your schedule is overflowing, and even put the majority of things you love to the side.
Being a boss babe doesn’t come easy. However, with the right boss babe accessories, it can become easier. So, whether you’re an aspiring freelance writer, Instagram influencer, Youtube sensation or entrepreneur, make sure your boss babe attitude fills your office space.
