3. “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg

4. “Thrive” by Arianna Huffington
Huffington has built a well-respected media empire as the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post. She has written many great books, but “Thrive” really answers the questions many women ask themselves “can we have it all?” and “what does having it all look like?” Every page is inspirational and will encourage you to create a purposeful life as the best version of yourself.
5. “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler
Poehler is a queen of comedy and a kick-butt role model for young girls and women. She’s not only a comedian, but she’s also a writer, actress, producer and director. Her book if filled with wit, humor, personal stories, and advice. She is an example of how things won’t always come easy, so being persistent, determined, positive, and even funny can help you accomplish your goals. These are also very important traits of a girl boss.
