Lady Boss: How To Become Great

Some days, it may feel like everything is out of your control, but the truth is that meeting your goals and being in charge of your life is closer than it might seem. You deserve flexibility, stability, and opportunities. Becoming a lady boss can help you create a life for yourself and your family that makes you proud and happy every day.

Here at PixieLane, we believe in dreaming. That’s how we got our start, and that’s why we’re sharing exciting opportunities and resources for dreamers, go-getters, goal-chasers, and lady bosses.

Check out this guide to get started!

What Is a Lady Boss?

There are many ways to become a lady boss in your own life, but lady bosses are often self-motivated, intentional, creative, and organized. They’re not afraid of taking on big challenges or trying something new, and they like being in control of their organization or program.

A lady boss is a take-charge, capable, and powerful person who strives to better herself and her opportunities every day.

How Can I Become a Lady Boss? 

There are many different ways to embrace the ethos and strengths of the lady boss life, and PixieLane is here to help you get started, so you can enjoy the benefits of life on your own terms.

Start a Side Hustle

While any woman can be a lady boss, mothers are great candidates for many reasons. They’re organized, capable, and able to juggle many different projects and responsibilities all at one time. That’s why a side hustle is a great idea. You don’t need to worry about being away from your family or taking on the responsibilities of a full-time job with specific hours.

Instead, you live by your own rules, selling products you love and creating a brand that really represents you. And the best part is, you can do it all after the kids have gone to sleep.

Embrace Work-Life Balance

One of the most important things about being a lady boss is that you take time for the things that you love. There’s no point in working hard if you never get to enjoy the benefits of all your labor. It’s important to find a way to balance the work you do with time spent with loved ones or pursuing your own hobbies and interests. Taking time away from work will help you to perform more efficiently when you return.

Ask for What You Want

Knowing your self-worth and value is essential to getting ahead, especially as a woman. It’s a good idea to stay informed about industry trends, so you can always advocate for yourself and your skills, but it’s also about going after what you want and not being afraid to try something new.

Find Your Self-Love

It’s important to take care of yourself along the way, however. When you’re raising a family and trying to start a business, it can be hard to find those moments for yourself. But remember, working out, eating healthy, and snuggling up with a book for a few minutes are all essential steps for recharging your mind, body, and soul and your way of showing yourself that you care.

And self-love goes even further. Pay attention to what you think about yourself and how you respond to setbacks and challenges.

Do you belittle yourself or allow others to do so? Consider why that might be and how you can replace negative thoughts and feelings about your own value with encouraging, positive ones.

Don’t Be Afraid To Fail

It’s easier than it might seem to get stuck at the starting line — and we get it. Failure can be challenging and even a little embarrassing, but the moment that you accept failure as part of the process, you’ll feel stronger and more excited about all the possibilities ahead.

Failure can also be a way to find new opportunities and to be creative. Rather than thinking of each setback as a reason you shouldn’t continue, try to use them to find new perspectives and ways to move forward.  

Create a Community of Lady Bosses

One of the best ways to stay encouraged, even when you’re feeling let down, is to find or build a community that can cheer you on and grow with you. Not only will you each have people to rely on to help you stay motivated and excited about future opportunities, but you can learn a lot by sharing resources, discussing experiences, and engaging with industry trends. It makes running your business feel a lot less lonely, and you can find life-long friends in the process.
