You've probably heard a lot of career advice from your mom, your opinionologist best friend, and college professors, but how do you know what advice to follow? Listen to a girl who made it!! Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of the cult online retailer Nasty Gal (I imagine you've heard of this store…) Also writer of the book #GIRLBOSS where she charmingly shows us how to be successful in your professional life. Take note:
1. FIND A JOB YOU REALLY LIKE
The famous phrase already said: Choose a job you like and you will not have to work a day in your life. It is impossible to be successful if you do something you genuinely hate!
2. DON'T FEAR IF YOUR CAREER PATH IS NOT PERFECT
“Bad jobs make good jobs more meaningful. Most people don't immediately land their dream job , which means we all have to start somewhere. You will appreciate your amazing career so much more when you look back at your not-so-amazing jobs of the past, and hopefully realize that you learned something from all of them.”
3. CHASE WHAT WORKS, FIRE WHAT DOESN'T
Use your brain like money: don't waste it! . Occupy your mind and time on things that are really important and don't wear yourself out with what is stealing your energy. Do not deviate from the objective!
3. YOU DON'T NEED ANOTHER PAIR!
“If you learn to control your finances , you won't find yourself stuck in jobs, places, or relationships you hate simply because you can't afford to go anywhere else… money looks better in the bank than in your feet.”
4. GET A WATCH
“Sometimes being late is unavoidable (sometimes we have bad days), but repeatedly being late and being predictable in that regard is a wonderful way to show your boss that you don't care about your work. No one wants to hire or continue to hire someone who doesn't give a damn."
5. ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT
“If you're frustrated because you're not getting what you want, stop for a second: Did you really ask about it? If you haven't, stop complaining. You can't expect the world to read your mind. You have to get it out there, and sometimes that's as simple as, 'Can I have that?'”
8. NOTHING IS OUTSIDE YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION
“Do you want to know what are the 4 words that I probably hate the most? 'It's not my job.' Nasty Gal is not a place where these 4 words are heard. At the end of the day, we are all here for one reason – to make the company successful .
9. BE KIND TO EVERYONE
“…the worst type of pest is the selective pest–people who are nice to their boss and superiors, but downright rude to their peers and subordinates. If you tend to be mean to the girl at the front desk, the security guard, or the staff at the Starbucks next door, the news will eventually go up through the networks, and the head of the network won't like it." Plus you never know when you're going to need those people.
10. DRESSING WELL IS IMPORTANT
“I do think you should worry about the clothes you wear. Your clothes are the last armor you fight with in the world. When you choose the right clothes, it feels good. And there's nothing superficial about feeling good." A very important accessory in the women's wardrobe is the wallet, these give us security and status.
