How To Boss Up & Start Achieving as a Young Girl in 2017 + $150 Giveaway (closed )

 Hi guys! I initially wanted to title this post "how a young girl can achieve her dreams" not because I'm older, know it all and have done it all but because, I'm  young girl myself, I have dreams I'm working towards and I'm daily learning new things both from my own journey and from other women I follow and look up to, from books and articles, videos everything.

So these are tips I'm also implementing and just thought I'd share with you guys cause I know many girls out there including myself have dreams and goals and we all just want to make it in life, we want to slay hard, make money, check off our bucket lists, have the life of our dreams and the only way to do that, to live that dream life to, become a girl boss is to start today. But how?

1. Have a dream - first of all, don't be afraid to dream. It doesn't matter what country you're from, what kind of family you grew up in, your background, if everyone else around you has been successful or not, if you're currently broke and barely surviving each passing day, if you've faced so many disappointments in life, no matter the circumstances, don't be afraid to dream and dream big. Because if you don't know where you're going and if you don't have a picture in your mind of where you want to be, how will you know how to even get there.

2. Stop saying and just do - a lot of us keep saying what we want to do, what we hope to start but we never ever start. You want to start a business, you want to take a step, apply to a school, start a YouTube channel, blog, website, write a book, take whatever you're doing to the next level but we never do, we just keep pushing and pushing for so many in-genuine reasons like you don't have everything you need yet or what are people going to say. If you keep waiting for everything to be perfect, you'll never get anything done, just start with what you have and upgrade as time goes on. And don't let people's opinions be the reason why you don't achieve your dreams.

3. Get educated, get skills - In this day and age, you can't just afford to not know how to do anything. What skills do you have? If you don't have any, go and learn something. Let it be part of the things you do this year. They're so many ways to learn new stuff now and even free. Online courses, website and blog articles, YouTube videos and so many. If it's photography, catering, designing, whatever just go get a skill and as many as you can.

4. Promote Yourself - If you don't promote yourself, your work and what you are good at, who will? Sell yourself  to people, pitch to them. It was very difficult for me to let people know I had a blog in the beginning and till now, I prefer to keep it to myself sometimes. But I realized that if I don't tell people about it, how would they know and if no one knows, how will the blog ever grow. Even though it's scary to just put yourself out there especially in this harsh world where everyone must have something to say about everything but at least start promoting yourself little by little especially online, use social media - Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat , Instagram to your advantage.

5. Connect with people - No man is an island even though I had the ideology of I don't need anyone to succeed for a very long time but we all need a network, we all need connections, we all need someone. So network with people who are doing similar things you're doing, reach out to them even if it's online, collaborate with them especially if they're more advanced than you, you can learn a lot from them.

6. Keep learning and growing - if you want to be a boss and stay a boss, you must never get too comfortable, never get complacent and feel you have arrived or you're on top of your game. You must be open to change, to doing things in new ways, keep advancing, keep going higher and higher.

7. Have role models - As an upcoming blogger, I have so many top bloggers and influencers I follow day and night on every where possible because they're living my dream life, they've been where I am, done it all and even have a t-shirt to show for it, that's why I'm following their every move, seeing what they're doing, how they do things, reading  and watching their posts and videos, learning their tips and tricks to success. So find a role model that you can interact with even if it's not face to face, everything can be found online these days.

8. Do the work - Every day, I keep telling myself, I have to work harder and push more. There is no such thing as an overnight success, all these successful women you see living the life, travelling all around the world, rocking the latest designer trends have done some serious behind the scenes work. They've worked their asses off and now it's paying off so don't entertain laziness, work hard and let the goal keep driving you.
