March is the celebration of Women's History Month. It's an opportunity to celebrate and reflect on women's achievements, as well as the problems they have have faced in the struggle to be free and the important role that they continue to play. With that being said, I have come up with a list of books with "girl bosses" from my most recent reads. These female fictional characters bossed up in a major way and I was thoroughly pleased reading about them. Check them out and let us know what you think.
1. Yara Moreland
Yara didn't start out as a strong woman that would make a good role model, but she finished as one in the end. Yara ended up doing a 10 year prison sentence being a ride or die chick and was betrayed in the end by her husband. But once she was released from prison she bossed up in a major way. In the end she was Co-Owner and Vice President of YP recordings, one of the largest independent labels in this fictitious world.
2. Angela Strickland (4C Angie)
This particular character was a dual boss. Angela Strickland was a property owner that owned a duplex, she lived on one side and rented the other side. 4C Angie was a YouTube vlogger showing the world how she styled her hair, with a large following and hella views. No matter which persona she used, she was killing it. Homegirl never had to leave her house!
3. Kennedi Armstrong
Kennedi Armstrong comes from an affluent family. Her dad is a dentist and her mom is a homemaker, but she doesn't let that stop her hustle. Kennedi starts her own business and is a website content manager. A web content manager is a dedicated person for overseeing the planning, organization, creation, and publishing of all content. In this installment she was just starting out but was still working with some high profile clients. Sounds like my dream job!
4. Giselle Braxton
I can truly admire a woman that works when she doesn't have to. Giselle was the boss of all bosses, CEO of Gen, a wine company her mother started before she died. Sis had all kinds of financial wealth where she never had to step foot in an office building, but she wanted to grow her mother's company to it's maximum potential. And that she did, she was retired before the age of thirty and still filthy rich.
5. Charlie White
Charlie is the epitome of "work on their dreams in the day and yours at night". She started out working at a maternity store, Bundled, and used that stepping stone to create her business. Charlie created a bedside service for pregnant women offering them all the help and assistance that anyone could think of. I personally had never heard of a business like this, but it was definitely a cool one. And in this fictitious world, a profitable one.
