Boss: know no bounds
The blog for the aspiring novice entrepreneur boss
Defining the #Girlboss
Find what works for you. Part of being a #Girlboss is capitalizing on your strengths & leaving out what doesn’t work for you.
When you’re a novice #girlboss, sometimes you don’t know what works….try it out. You fail, keep that mental note, & try a different strategy. Remember this,… failure is part of the process. But it does not define you. You can only know what you’re made of if you go for it. You will never have growth if you stand still.
At the heart of it all, as long as you are authentically YOU, people will fall in love with you and your product. Don’t try to be a mould of someone else, because people will see right through the phony. And when you’re trying to be someone you’re not, it always feels so effort-FULL.
KNOW WHO ARE. AND OWN WHO YOU ARE.
I’m loud. So I gravitate towards colour & patterns.
I’m a lone wolf. So I work alone. On my own terms. On my schedule. (Because goodness knows the other side of my life is full of regimented deadlines & working for someone else).
SoireeFrillsCo is my creative outlet, my thing, my “one different cloth”.
Do what works for you. Ask yourself “How do I envision my one different cloth?”
Answer that….& you’ll be golden.
Boss-in-training: No-no bounds
The blog for my growing girls, who I strive to raise strong fierce ladies & soon to be bosses. The ‘don’ts’, followed by the ‘do’s’
The bravery in the guts & glory
Dear Elle & Enne,
Don’t be afraid to step on toes. You want it, go get it. Someone else wants the same thing, wish them well & mentally prep yourself and say “I deserve this too”. You will learn, that as nice as it is to be nice and fair to everyone, life does not always work that way. Life and positions are filled with competition. There is always typically a winner, runner ups, & honourable mentions. You may as well this early on in life. It’ll save you heartache in the long run, trust me.
Never feel the peer pressure to step down from something you want to pursue just because somebody said you weren’t good enough, tall enough, strong enough, or tough enough. Be bold and fierce in what you want. Use both your voice and actions to go for what you want.
It isn’t about just saying something- because all talk and no game is cheap. Doing what you set out to do is admirable; but saying what you want out loud AND going for it is guts & bravery. I want you to be brave. I want you be all about guts and glory. Because, that, my girls, is how girlbosses grow.
P.S. Congrats Elle on graduating kindergarten.
CURRENT SITUATION –
Defining your intentions for the day during THE GOOD, THE BAD, & THE UGLY.
“Today is the day I…….”
Today is the day I……
Show a random & spontaneous act of kindness towards BOTH an important person/ peeps in my life & a stranger without expecting anything in return.
❤️ Buy someone coffee the way they like it
❤️Bring someone their favourite dessert after a rough day or week
❤️ Tell them that you thought about them after walking by a building that reminded them of you or a coffee shop you used to frequent
❤️ Tell them that you still have a sticky note they wrote you years ago
❤️ Bring them their favourite food when you buy food for yourself….even when they say they don’t want anything. They can always eat it later.
❤️ Give up your donut & trade for another when the person behinds you want the donut you have in your box but the store ran out of it.
❤️ Help the mom who is having a hard time pushing her new born in a stroller while her older kid runs ahead
❤️ Compliment how awesome someone’s work is on their Instagram account
* side note- these are all things I’ve done in the past few weeks. I promise, it Feels fantabulous doing any of these actions. Gratitude & thoughtfulness is contagious.
Today is the day I…….
Divulge in all the chips and desserts because tomorrow is another day to reset & start fresh.
👉🏼 know that today’s pitfalls do not define who you are; & there is always another chance to try. ( or not try) again.
I indulged in lots of ketchup chips & onion ring chips as I felt sorry for myself that one day…I may have also bought more jewelry that I did not need 😜
👉🏼Side note- thank goodness for snapchat filters that make light of things & make things look better than they really are.
Today is the day I …..
👉🏼 absolutely stop Comparing myself to someone else’s progress. Jealousy is a bitch with a nasty stench.
CURRENT CRAFT PROJECTS
Cards with a twist of sarcasm & humour to lighten up life’s shitty occurrences. And of course, They are a work in process. I’ve also decided that I need more thank you cards; Cutesy card that say “thank you” in multiple ways. You can never say thank you enough times.
🌈Yes- there is one on break ups;
🌈Yes there’s one on falling flat on your face; &
🌈Yes there are ones on friendship.
