We asked 5 female entrepreneurs to share their experience and advice on what helps them become a boss.

Michelle Lee from Allure- “You need to have your own vision and take your own risks.”

Rebecca Minkoff– “What makes me a boss is as a mother, I have become great at multi-tasking, relying on my staff, viewing them as entrepreneurs and making sure I have a to-do list”

Jen Atkins, founder of Ouai- “What made me a Boss was being a good assistant and I was the first one at the salon and the last one to leave.”

Jaclyn Johnson of Create & Cultivate- “What made me a Boss was owning my power and calling yourself a Boss or an Entrepreneur.”

Anastasia Soare– “What makes me a boss is hardwork, knowing what you want and also knowing how to get what you want. To become a boss, you need to work hard, believe in your dreams and you need to be passionate about what you do.”

‘What makes me a Boss‘ is an online platform to inspire women and young girls to write their goals, be their own boss and also a social enterprise to help women become financially independent in Nepal through training and employment.
