Create boundaries and structure! You have to be your own parent!”

Here’s a tip: Treat your savings account like just another bill. It has to be paid every month, or there are consequences. If you have direct deposit, have a portion of your paycheck automatically diverted into a savings account. Once it’s in there, forget about it. You never saw it anyway. It’s an emergency fund only (and vacations are not emergencies).”

16 | “Compete with yourself, not with others.”

17 | “If you’re frustrated because you’re not getting what you want, stop for a second: Have you actually flat-out asked for it? If you haven’t, stop complaining. You can’t expect the world to read your mind. You have to put it out there, and sometimes putting it out there is as simple as just saying, “Hey, can I have that?”

18 | “Confidence is more attractive than anything you could put on your body.”

It’s cool to be honest and to be secure with yourself. Cool is the girl at a party who strikes up a conversation with you when she notices you don’t seem to know many people there.”

27 | “Naturally, every boyfriend comes with an ex-girlfriend, every business comes with competitors, but it is entirely up to you to decide how much time you spend thinking about them.”

29 | “Owning your style takes some effort, and it’s okay to expend effort on how you look. Putting in effort is exactly what you should be doing. You should get dressed for your life. I don’t care if the only place you have to go is the post office. Get dressed, #girlboss, and let your freak flag fly.”
