As a boss woman, it's important to be mindful of not only the people you surround yourself with, but also with the content you consume.
As the saying goes, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." With this in mind, you should think twice about the people you're around and the content you digest.
When you're on your road to bosshood, it's critical that you surround yourself with people and things that can help take you there. Whether you're getting ready to start a new business, going after a promotion, or thinking about going back to school, having the right vibes around is crucial.
One of the easiest (and freest) ways you can surround yourself with the right energy is through email newsletters. Many of our favorite brands, influencers, and companies have newsletters that are sent out every day, week, or month. Being subscribed to the right email lists can give you all the information, inspiration, and content that you need to become the boss woman you aspire to be.
In this post, we've rounded up some of the best newsletters by women-of-color owned businesses that you should subscribe to. If we've missed any that you love, be sure to let us know in the comments!
