Today, I’d like to introduce a new category on Want Get Repeat – Motivation Monday.
As some of you might now, in addition to this blog, I’m also working full time in controlling – a job I’ve started right after my Master’s degree in International Business Studies.
I would have never been able to succeed in being a diligent student, working 20 hrs/week and having both this blog and a satisfying private life, without the one or other motivation technique. As I know exactly how hard it can be to focus on your goals and don’t get discouraged by failure, I decided to dedicate a weekly post to this topic – So to say a motivation boost for a new week! In addition, I’m going to keep those posts in English – not only is reading (and writing 😉 ) about things you’re interested in in a foreign language a fun way to improve your skills, I also just simply prefer how everything sounds in English!
Today’s post is all about inspiring women in business who I like to look up to – my five most inspiring girlbosses!
1. Delia Fischer
Without this woman, the world probably wouldn’t invest into cushions with ‘zigzag’ patterns and coffee table books! Understanding a woman’s needs in interior shopping (inspiration, an eye for the detail and shopping a whole “look”) and noticing that they are not fed, she created the unique interior shopping club “Westwing Home & Living” whose flashsales make us all go pretty cray cray. Read a super-inspiring interview with Delia here.
2. Amber Venz Box
Amber Who? True, the woman behind rewardStyle and LIKEtoKNOW.it does not instantly ring a bell, but her company which revolutionized the affiliate possibilities for bloggers does. To me, the innovative and technically sophisticated concept of LIKEtoKNOW.it still seems like magic sometimes – chapeau!
3. Lena Terlutter
She appeared literally out of nowhere and and was suddenly everywhere – and still I keep wondering, whether her day has 50 hours?! She’s the owner of four boutiques (which make fashionistas from all over Germany travel to Cologne), mother, Instagram star, model… I surely forgot about 7 other jobs she has! Read this power woman’s career path – which by the way started in university! – here.
4. Lisa, Tanja and Lena from Blogger Bazaar
Those three ladies truly revolutionized the German bloggosphere. Starting with their signature event “Blogger Bazaar” and using their own and the most influential bloggers’ social power, they create solutions for brands which I honestly find benchmarking. Moreover, they seem to be blessed with some kind of duracell bunny gene – keep on going, ladies!
5. Su & Chris
Those two girls (and btw twins!) from Cologne may not have appeared in any girlboss-lists before but it is high time for it now! Not only they own one of the most beautiful and inspiring Instagram accounts, they are also launching their online shop this week – how amazing is that?
Who are your favorite girlbosses or to whom do you look up to? And of course, how do you like this new category of posts? I can’t wait to read your feedback!
