Tons of Tools & Inspiration for the Girl Boss

"I've got some dreeeams... she's got some dreams!" If you can tell me what movie this is from, we can totally be friends. For the past few months, I've been dreaming and scheming and wishing and hoping. Not only for our baby girl to enter into the world (any day now!) but also for what the future may hold. I've always had a thing for being creative. I've always had a dream of owning a quaint little coffee shop with a mini library tucked in the back. I've dreamt of hanging local art on the walls and showcasing lovely local scarves and jewelry and mugs. It's a big dream but a favorite of the few dreams I have for myself.
Another favorite is going to be kept secret for now but one day soon.. (after I get the handle on being a first time mom...) I will let you all in on the little secret I've been planning so stay tuned! I'm finally going for it. I've been too scared of failure, of the "what-ifs", of the comparison, but after an awesome talk with my husband over lunch one day a few weeks ago, when he told me that he completely supported anything and everything I wanted to do in this dream and will help me along the way,
 I'm going for it.
With that said, I love research. I have a growing list of my favorite places to go for inspiration on being a girl boss, a momtrepreneur, or whatever name you want to call someone who is in the business of going after her dreams of business and creativity. 
My Favorite Websites for Tools + Inspiration:
