Inspirational Out-takes from Women Entrepreneurs

Have you watched the TV series  #GirlBoss from Netflix?
The show is based on Sophia Amoruso\’s autobiography which tells the story of how she started the company \’Nasty Gal\’ while working as a campus safety host for San Francisco\’s Academy of Art University.
The story began when a 23-year old Sophia is fired from her job at a San Francisco shoe store and behind on her rent. When browsing a consignment store, she bought a 1970\’s vintage motorcycle jacket for 9$ and sells it on eBay for $600! That gave her the idea to start her own vintage clothing business on ebay.
I was amused on how the business idea unfolds. She is young, rebellious and broke but having the attitude and mindset of getting what she want plus being the natural fashion savvy, takes her all the way to the top!
Here\’s my fave from her infinite wisdom to take:
  1. “A #GIRLBOSS is someone who’s in charge of her own life.
  2.  She gets what she wants because she works for it.
  3. As a #GIRLBOSS, you take control and accept responsibility. You’re a fighter – you know when to throw punches and when to roll with them. Sometimes you break the rules, sometimes you follow them, but always on your own terms. You know where you’re going, but can’t do it without having some fun along the way. You value honesty over perfection. You ask questions.
  4. You take life seriously, but you don’t take yourself too seriously. You’re going to take over the world, and change it in the process. You’re a badass.”
  5. “You combine hard work, creativity, and self-determination, and things start to happen.”

Above all, number 5 is the major turning point. Hardwork, creativity and self-determination speaks your own unique path to succeed.

Another success story is that of  Chrissy Weems\’. It is all about having those small ideas and the potential to grow them big.

She is  the President and Co-founder of Origami Owl, she was able to grow her business from local to nationwide. Origami Owl is a leading custom jewelry company known for telling stories through signature Living Lockets, personalized Charms, Bracelets and Earrings.

The story of Origami Owl started when Chrissy Weems wanted to teach her 14-year-old daughter a life lesson. She wanted to buy a car and normal teenage jobs weren’t bringing her the money fast enough. Chrissy and her daughter came up with the idea of Origami Owl from YouTube and during their first try, they were able to sell more than $1000 worth of product. 

When asked what business book has inspired her the most, she answered: \”A book called \’In the Company of Women\’  by Grace Bonney. I read this book before I launched my business. I wanted to learn from other women who started their own business or those who run companies. The book gave a lot of golden nuggets of business lessons that I still carry to this day.\”

The book is a collection  of empowering advice and inspiration from over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs. It consists of Inspirational stories from women entrepreneurs that  inspire, uplift, and motivates every woman\’s Entrepreneurial spirit.

Here\’s some of  Motivational Quotes to ponder:

“You have to be resourceful, work hard, be kind and constantly innovate. You never know who a stranger actually is and what they may mean to your business later  on, so you have to treat everyone you come across with respect and never burn bridges. You also need to be true to yourself when designing and editing and explore your own story as a source of inspiration, as that is what will give your work more integrity and make you stand out from the crowd.” 
~Tanya Aguiñiga, Furniture Designer / Maker
“People Often go into business because they love something: baking pies, building furniture, designing clothes. The reality of being a business owner is that your occupation is not Pie Maker, Furniture Builder or Clothing Designer. Your occupation is Entrepreneur . If you don’t love business, you will not love your job. ”
~Mary Going, Fashion Designer
Also from Mary “Hire slow, fire fast.” (attributed to her mentor Michael Bush)
“The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to prepare for the long haul,  the rise and fall, and let neither define your sense of self.” ~Karen Young
“Grow Organically. Don’t get ahead of yourself.” ~Eileen Fisher
Tina Roth Eisenberg‘s favorite quote: “The best way to complain is to make things” ~James Murphy

Overall, this simply shows how important it is to have role models who reminded us of at least one part of ourselves and get truly inspired to get things happen. These Inspirational stories will surely fuel the drive to succeed and learn from every mistakes and challenges along the way.
