There is nothing in this world a girl cannot do and that includes being a successful entrepreneur. It takes courage and a whole lot of effort for a woman to create her won empire in this world wherever everyone thinks she is weak. Then, there are examples of successful female tycoons like Coco Chanel who took the world in their stride and shut everyone up with their hard work.
To become a girl boss, you need an inspiration, a role model. While that person could be anyone, you could take a lot of inspiration from Coco Chanel, the lady who built her fashion empire from nothing.
In case you didn’t know, Coco Chanel had a tough life. Nobody would understand better when you are up against the world other than her. Her mother died when she was little and her father left her in an orphanage. Little did she know that destiny was putting her on track because that orphanage was where she learned to sew and grew up to become one of the biggest tycoons of the fashion industry.
She opened her first shop in 1910 but it got shut down due to economic depression and world war. Years later, she was back with a bang and relaunched her new label. She had a challenging life but she knocked one challenge after another out of the park. She was even suspected of being soy because she had a relationship with a Nazi.
Here are a few badass quotes from her to fuel you with encouragement and confidence. Her quotes are gospel to becoming a #girlboss.
