The Pros and Cons of The #Girlboss Movement

The #Girlboss Movement, defined by its empowerment of women in the workplace, is one of the most important developments in recent times. Women finally get the respect they deserve in the field of entrepreneurship. And while the benefits of the #Girlboss culture are rewarding and the positivity that surrounds it is truly infectious for women all across the globe, there are several ugly truths that come with the hustle of making a business not only work but also make a profit every single day. In fact, there are indeed several pros and cons to the #Girlboss Movement. 

First of all, starting a business — one of the many ways to become a girl boss — is not an easy feat. There are several factors to consider in creating your own empire from the ground up — especially when you’re walking on a tight rope when it comes to initial investments. Furthermore, the risks of incorporating a girl boss lifestyle are much higher when you’re living off on a per salary basis as a working employee. Honestly, there are a lot of questions that you need to ask yourself before jumping into the hustle and bustle of being a business owner such as if you have the money to lose in case things don’t go your way, will your current lifestyle keep up with the costs of maintaining your newly formed business, are you satisfied with your life at the moment, and the list goes on. 

However, if you are an aspiring girl boss, don’t let this put you down! While there are many things to think about deeply before you even consider shelling out a few cents, the rewards greatly outweigh the risks. The freedom that comes with the culture is refreshing. As mentioned earlier, starting your own business is just one of the many ways to become a girl boss. If you’re satisfied with where you are at the moment career-wise, you don’t have to jump blindly into the abyss and drop everything in an instant! Becoming a girl boss is a way of life — a culture that persuades you to be yourself. So start slow and success will surely be in your sights sooner or later.
