Instagram is no longer just for uploading pictures of champagne brunches and stalking hot models.
There are some companies using it to raise the profile of their businesses and inspire the next generation of #girlbosses.
Here are my top 9:
What: super chic slogan bags that make bold statements and are sold through their online store.
What: motivational quotes that tide you over from Monday to Sunday to promote a growing network of millennial business women on the Internet.
This is another level of success. When you realize that if you pay attention to building your own education and self-esteem you stop chasing the attention and validation from others and you just start attracting a new clique of amazing people. You stop wanting a dream life, you just begin to embody your dream life. ✨Join the #Bossbabe Netwerk™ (Click The Link In Our Profile Now! ) ✨Follow @bossbabealex & @millennialrichgirl now for more inspo! 💗

“A lot of times young girls are impatient and they want it to happen so quickly. They try it and if it’s not happening fast enough they move on to something else. But that something else that they move on to isn’t necessarily their passion.
