Calling all Boss Babes, Girl Bosses, Career Women, or whatever you want to call yourselves! Welcome to the first post in the Boss Babes series! Today I’m going to be talking about 7 boss babe essentials to be successful with the help of Vistaprint.
7 Boss Babe Essentials:
Everyone needs a good planner that they truly love. No matter if you are a boss babe or not, having a planner is key in setting you to be successful in life. Having a central location where you keep track of work schedules, meetings, appointments, social life, deadlines, homework (if you’re in school), bills and your thoughts is crucial in making sure that you don’t overlap anything or you don’t stretch yourself too thin. There are a wide variety of planners out there and it’s all about trial and error in finding which one works best for you and your lifestyle.
In today’s digital age, having pens might not seem like the biggest essential but if you are someone who likes to write down their to-do lists, writing in a physical planner, or just jotting down ideas, finding good pens is a must. Just like with the planner, finding the right pens take trial and error but there’s a pen out there that works for you. Does anyone else think certain pens make their handwriting prettier?
Anybody else a notebook, notepad, or cute cards junkie? I sure am. There’s nothing like finding pretty notepads to write down thoughts or your to-do list. I fully believe that pretty stationery is more motivating than ugly paper. Cards are also great to have on hand for when you need to send a thank you note or a ‘just because’ card. Make sure you stock up on return addresses to go along with your cards. Having return addresses on hand to simply stick on the envelope will save you time. In the world of a boss babe who is trying to juggle it all, anything that saves a few minutes is crucial. AmIright?
Business Cards //
Now everyone boss babe, girl boss, or career woman needs a good set of business cards. Having business cards is an easy way to promote your business and network with other. When creating your business cards, make sure you include your business, your name, your business’ website, as well as, phone number, address, and email. Many small businesses like restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops will have a spot for you to leave your cards. This is a great way to gain local exposure. Plus, some of those small businesses will draw random business cards out and the winner will get a free coffee or lunch. #winwin

Boss Babe Tribe //
Every woman needs a tribe and every boss babe needs a tribe of other boss babes. Your boss babe tribe should be made up of likeminded women who are in the same niche as you, or as close to the same niche as you. A tribe will understand what you’re going through. They will be able to be a sounding board when you need help with ideas, a group to vent frustrations to because they get it, and a group that helps motivate you. Plus, this boss babe tribe can become your best friends.
Inspiring Podcasts, Books, Playlists, Etc. //
On days where you just can’t seem to find inspiration and feel like giving up, make your own inspiration. Inspiration can come in many forms such as books, podcasts, playlists, or other sources of media. Take some time away and listen to an inspiring podcast or take 15 minutes and read through a book you find inspiring. Sometimes just shifting your focus can be inspiring.
A Morning Routine //
Lastly, a morning routine is a boss babe essential. Sleep is definitely critical in surviving life but choosing to get up and get moving is a great motivator. I’ve shared my morning routine and I’m all about the early bird gets the worm. I do my best work in the morning and I always take a few minutes for some self-care before I start my busy days.
