I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite inspirational reads relating to women in the workplace. Being a strong female certainly presents its own challenges. I have found these books to be particularly helpful, inspiring, and motivating!
So let's start with the official "#GirlBoss" book--one of my very favorites!
This book is based on Sophia Amoruso's road to success with her company Nasty Gal. It covers everything from trust and success to how important it is to just be yourself and follow your gut. This is a quick, fun read that I would suggest to any women striving to be a #GIRLBOSS.
"The Glitter Plan"
I find it easier to read about business when it's based on a topic I'm interested in-- FASHION!
Even if you aren't in the fashion industry, The Glitter Plan is very relatable on many levels. Based on the very well-known brand Juicy Couture, it tells the story of how two best friends believed in their dreams and turned $200 into
$200 million with a little faith and a lot of glitter!
"The Speed of Trust"
On a more serious note, The Speed of Trust is an excellent read focusing on how something as simple as trust can change an entire business and how important and influential outlook and perspective can be! While this is a tougher more technical read, it was well worth the time and effort it took me to get through the whole book.
"Nice Girls Still Don't Get the Corner Office"
This is an awesome read for all of my strong, career oriented, female friends!
This book outlines specific behaviors that us women typically demonstrate within the work place that hinder our opportunities for advancing our careers. The layout is excellent; each "mistake" is it's own chapter with a follow up section of "coaching tips". This book is an excellent learning tool and easy to go back to, to reference!
The "Go Giver"
I cannot recommend this book enough! Everyone should read it, business woman or not. It is told as a story of a young man named Joe and his journey of how to be a "go-getter" by being a "go-giver". It is a compelling story about how to open yourself up to the power of giving through the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success.
I first read this book in college. It was an assignment from my marketing professor, and I can say that it has truly become one of my favorites!
There are SO many more influential "girl-boss" & business books out there, and I hope to continue this series as I grow my library. Let me know which are your favorites and ones I should add to my list!!
Thanks for reading!
