the brand girls: three reasons college women need to start putting themselves first

As millennial women, we are known for wanting it all –  our dream jobs (and salaries, hello!), strong relationships, travel, you name it. 

Despite our big plans, we’re still notorious for putting the needs of others first and taking care of ourselves last. And It can be easy for us to get so caught up in helping others that we lose sight of our own goals and passions.

The Brand Girls is here to help you finally make your dreams a reality with three reasons college women need to starting putting themselves first.

Your future is just that – your own: No matter who else is along for the ride, your future truly belongs to YOU. Putting yourself first empowers you to take the reigns in your own life!

Now is the time to decide what you want and then make. It. happen. 

At The Brand Girls, our Founder and CEO, Rachael Bozsik, strives to make all millennial women realize “you are a chooser of opportunities.”

Prioritizing builds strength: The Herald Sun shares, “You slowly leak confidence as you start to question your abilities.” And The Brand Girls couldn’t agree more.

By prioritizing yourself and your own needs FIRST – you’re breaking the mold and setting your own tone as a bold, fearless, young professional who can do it all. No room for doubt here, ladies!

You can’t fill from an empty cup: Focusing on yourself and your own goals first will only give you more energy + inspiration to help others later.

“…by tending to our own needs and practicing good self-care, we alter the very quality of how we relate to others,” Psychology Today shares. “Our families, friends, and coworkers get to experience us as the best and fullest versions of ourselves—happy and present.”

Remember, working on yourself and your own dreams is healthy. Focusing on your goals first will only strengthen your relationships and leave a better version of you to others!
