It invites you–hell, implores you–to get in there and mess it up a little. Write in the blank spaces and in between them.

#GIRLBOSS started as Sophia’s story, but The Girlboss Workbook is your story. It includes the best advice from #GIRLBOSS, of course, and will remind readers of the story of the girl who got her start fumbling and failing hard, but now it is time to take her story and use it to help you write your own.

Use The Girlboss Workbook to design your own freak flag to your heart’s content. Ask yourself (or your mom) what makes you special and then draw in your own special snowflake. Revisit #GIRLBOSS‘s sage career wisdom and then use it to draft your own dream cover letter and answer your own practice interview questions. Fill in the blanks with your turn-ons and turn-offs, your most badass accomplishments, your mistakes. Write your own lemonade recipe with your own personal lemons. Use this workbook as a diary, a mood board, a stress ball.

No need to handle this book with care and no need to live a typical, cookie-cutter life. Sophia’s has been anything but.

This lovely book caught my eye when it came through the letterbox because not only does it have a very eye-catching design (I love the illustrations and doodles on the pages within) but it’s all about building your own confidence and providing inspiration so you can be your own #girlboss!

I love the interview advice and the lists/ sections which encourage the reader to get to know themselves better with prompts such as what turns you on and off,  your most memorable mistakes, etc; it’s got a great purpose.

As the synopsis says, “Use this workbook as a diary, a mood board, a stress ball” – it works for all three and would make a great gift for any great females in your life 🙂

I haven’t read #GirlBoss but I definitely want to give it a go now as this has sparked my interest in Sophia.

Available now on Amazon.
