Coming back from a weekend is super hard, especially after a holiday weekend. Let’s catch up on what happened over the weekend with April the Giraffe, Kathrine Switzer the first woman who competed the Boston Marathon, and let’s look forward to the Netflix show GirlBoss.
Shout Out to Lance Cartwright who wrote and played my new intro music, he’s only 12 years old. Crazy talented young man.
Sit Back, Sit Tight, And Enjoy…
Topic 1: April The Giraffe
Quote of the Day: “This will not last forever” – unknown
Topic 2: In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to complete the Boston Marathon.
Mission Statement from 261Feerless.org
“261 FEARLESS, INC. IS A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF WOMEN, BE SHE A WALKER, JOGGER AND RUNNER, WHO HAVE FOUND STRENGTH, POWER AND FEARLESSNESS FROM PUTTING ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER.”
Topic 3: Girl Boss – New Netflix, Loosely based off of the Founder and CEO of NastyGal.com (online retailer).
Mashable Article: “So Girlboss, loosely based on the best-selling book by Nasty Gal herself Sophia Amoruso, seemed up my alley. A Millennial who made a fortune despite not wanting to really do any work? Sign me up!”
Check it out April 21st on Netflix.
“Nasty Gal was founded by Sophia Amoruso 10 years ago in a tiny San Francisco apartment stacked with killer vintage, a single laptop and an eBay account. Today, we carry new clothing, shoes and accessories under our own label (and a few others), all for gals who’ve got the confidence to just be themselves.
We may be rooted in Los Angeles, but we live everywhere online.”
There are different kinds of entrepreneurs. There are the ones who start a business because they’re educated and choose to, and the ones who do it because it is really the only option. I definitely fall into the latter category. I considered myself completely unemployable, and wanted to give one last shot at my ideal of being “jobless.” And boy, did being jobless work for me.
Fun Fact of the day: “Sophia Amoruso is the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, which has grown to a $100 million-plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees in just eight years.”
Girl Bosses you might want to follow on Instagram – Not sure though, you tell me?
