How I'm Currently Organizing My Daily Schedule

I’ve always gravitated toward a steady routine in order to feel productive throughout the day. This mentality stems from university where I really didn’t have a lot of time between classes to get my essays done.

To stay on top of everything I would schedule my months in advance and set aside specific times devoted to assignments. Doing this made it so much easier keep track of everything that was due without scrambling last minute to get it done. Needless to say, I never missed a deadline.

Why I Don't Subscribe To the Girlboss Mentality

It’s taken me a very long time in my freelance writing journey to consider myself “the boss”. However, at the end of the day, that’s exactly what I am and what I need to be in order to get things done. I have to be both the CEO and the employee—one guiding the other the do the work necessary to reach the end goal. The notion of being the boss in your small business was always somewhat of an afterthought for me, but with the rise of the Girlboss movement, it really made me think about how I want to approach my professional life.

I find that we are inundated with ideas of how you should be acting or thinking when it comes to being an entrepreneur, but none of them feel right for me. So I thought I would write a post about why I don’t subscribe to the Girlboss mentality in case anyone is feeling just as much uncertainty about it.
