Have you ever looked around and wondered how so many women are out there killing it in the business world? The truth is, you don’t have to do too much wondering—it’s pretty simple. They have dreams, they set goals, they broke them down into achievable chunks, and they went after it. I bet, if you stopped and did a quick self-assessment, you’re on the same track as they are. It’s all a matter of perception when it comes to having the self-confidence to recognize just how much you’re putting into your career.

Still not sold that you’re part of that awesome group of boss babes? Here’s a look at four reasons why you’re a true boss babe.

You’re knockin’ on the door of a promotion. It may feel like it can’t come soon enough, but here’s the thing: you know how hard you work, and you know your worth. If you think it’s time that you get some recognition for all that you’ve put in, speak up. Own it. Be proud of your accomplishments and make sure your boss is too. Don’t be shy when it comes to advocating for yourself. It’s a tough world out there, and sometimes you have to be your own biggest fan, and that’s OK.

People come to you for advice and with questions. There’s nothing more flattering or reassuring than when colleagues and friends come to you for your expertise. That means they know that you know your stuff – and, that’s a great thing. When you find yourself managing questions or having the team look to you for final approval, pat yourself on the back – you’re officially a Boss Babe.

You feel good about your contributions. We all have those off days at work when we feel like we haven’t accomplished or contributed much, but when the majority of your days land on the opposite side of that, you should feel really good about what you’re doing. There isn’t always going to be a huge project to work on, some days land more on the side of maintenance, and that’s OK too. As long as you feel good about the work you do each day and the contributions you make, you’re also a Boss Babe.

When you feel your creative passions are fueled and energized by your work. That’s the best feeling in the world, isn’t it? It’s so great to feel your passion for work come out at just the right time and in the best way. No matter what you do for a living, feeling like you’ve solved a problem, developed a creative solution or let your passion drive your work, is the best way to achieve success – and it feels amazing.

Give yourself a pat on the back or high five your work bestie – if you fit into any of these categories, you are certainly a Boss Babe, and you should wear that title with pride. Go get ‘em.
