#GirlBoss: redefining what a boss looks like

Too many of us grew up only seeing one kind of boss or leader in the media. The lack of representation for other groups reinforced harmful stereotypes and acted as a self-fulfilling prophesy, but would our opinion of what a leader looks like be different if the media did a better job at representing the true diversity of leadership in America?

Women and other under-represented groups are already leading many great companies, organizations, & academic institutions; others are authoring best-sellers, building engaged audiences, leading movements and more.

We encourage you to check out the female leaders we’ve highlighted below, follow them on social media if you find their work or story interesting and most importantly do your part to #fightstereotypes

Vision changes the game… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done.” ~ Ralph Lauren ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that Oprah Winfrey was fired from a TV reporter job cuz they said she was ‘unfit for TV.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Michael Jordan was cut from his High School Basketball team and Academy award winning Steven Speilberg was rejected from film school THREE times! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thomas Edison was called remedial by his teachers and it took thousands of times before he figured out the light bulb. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And yet they are legendary! What’s one thing they have in common? One thing that kept them going despite the rejection, the failure, the setbacks? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Vision ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s the mental image you keep ever before you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why is it important? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Its important because it gives you direction and keeps you focused on where it is your trying to go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You use it for motivation and inspiration, especially when you hit road blocks. Those road blocks are normal! Just keep going! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I always tell my clients that their vision was given to them for a reason. Whatever you do, whatever happens, whatever ups and downs you have to encounter, stay the course. God doesnt abandon the vision, and neither should you. So…what’s your vision? . . . . #entrepreneur #vision #mission #influencer #bossmoves #CEO #leadershipcoach #businessstrategist #businesscoach #lifecoach #leadership #digitalleadership #strategy #miamibusinesscoach #miamiinfluencer #miamientrepreneur #miami #success #successmindset #smile #bosslady #girlboss #womeninleadership #goals #create #love #miamibusiness #blogger

Don’t try to be accepted, BE YOURSELF and you will like the people you should like. You are a unique masterpiece!!!!. You can do whatever is in your mind. Just focus your f* goal and make it yours. 😌 —— No trates de ser aceptado, sé tú mismo y le gustarás las personas que debes gustale. Eres una obra maestra única!!. Puedes hacer lo que sea que este en tu mente. Sólo enfoca tu objetivo y hazlo tuyo. – Por favor, hazlo. _______________________________________________ 📍La foto fue tomada al salir de la estación de radio; tengo libros que leo, mi laptop y mi planificador, voy camino a mostrar una casa que quieren comprar unas personas muy top.
