Want to know how I became a Girl Boss reader? Keep reading this post.
By the time I was 8 years old, and in the second grade I was already reading novels. I was an early reader due to having older siblings that were in school before me. One of my greatest childhood memories I have is stealing my brothers binders and pretending I was in school. once I started school supply shopping with my dad that was the greatest part of back to school.
My dad use too call me bookie because I just had a different love for stationary, specific pens note books and all that jazz.
My older sister use to spend hours and hours reading so I also developed a love for reading through her, she would read the book first then pass it down to me because in all truth she was a faster reader, she could literally read a book in 2 days and I’m talking like a 500 page book.
Some of our first favourites were Of course Robert Munch books and the The babysitters club, the Judy Blume books, we did a bit of Danielle Steel and a whole of other Genres that won’t be mentioned (wink).
After becoming an entrepreneur I quickly discovered that no one was going to teach me anything I had to teach myself and what better way in doing so than reading. I did attend many workshops but reading was a key factor in my learning. One of the first books that inspired me so much as a woman in business, was the Sophie Amorusa #girlboss book. That book inspired me to follow my dreams and whatever path I am on don’t give up or settle for a job just because it pays the bills.
Next was Carrie Greens book “She means Business” this book ladies and gents is the real deal. Carrie pin points a lot that I didn’t know and that I’ve already implemented in my business practices. I definitely will be reading it again. Not only does Carrie break down how to build a business from the bottom up, she also explains what worked and what didn’t work for her. Also what I loved about this book was the inspiring quotes. Like the one in the picture above.
As you may know I am a wedding planner but also write blogs about lifestyle and entertainment for women, One of the books that I have not read cover to cover but, every now and then skim through to spark ideas is Kate Spades “All in good taste”
This book is filled with so many chic ideas on entertaining and hosting at home I couldn’t turn it down.
With all that being said I really just wanted to share my love for reading and some of my favs.
Until next time!
