There are many ways to get the title “Boss B!tch.” One way is to really be a bitch. Then, put some stank on it, and be extremely rude and bossy, but I doubt that’s what the term is supposed to mean. According to the Urban Dictionary, the term boss bitch means ” A female that is extremely successful, stunting, and has plenty of power.” There are many ways to live up to the true meaning of the term and I have 5 ways that you can become a Boss B!TCH and take advantage of the top rated careers for black female professionals.

  1. Pharmacists- You could become a real pharmacists. Not a street pharmacists, but a legit doctor of pharmacology. From personal experience, I was on the road to becoming a pharmacists (notice I said was) this route takes dedication, LOTS!!! of studying and a whole lot of school involving math and science. I fought the good fight and tapped out with about three years of biology classes and a bachelors in business administration. If your a math or science freak or the type of person that can get through anything just by studying a little go for it.
  2. Chief Executive- Who doesn’t want to be dubbed a CEO. FYI, the word dubbed means to be given an unofficial name or nickname to (someone or something). To become a real CEO you would want to work for a real company, making real figures and have behind you a real degree. Most CEO’s have MBA’s (a masters of business administration) and/or years of proven monetary company growth. A CEO is a top-ranking corporate position, responsible for overseeing operations. Often the company’s president, the CEO reports to the chairman of the board and board members.
  3. Lawyer- Become an officer of the law, or court. I don’t know which phrase is correct , but you will definitely be consider a boss b!tch by becoming an attorney. This career path also requires schooling, but it is certainly attainable. 
  4. Nurse Practitioner- Shouts out to all my nurses. I know a lot of nurses and I can say they are phenomenal. They work hard, get paid well, and they are always in high demand. 
  5. Computer and Information Systems Manager- I truly don’t know a lot about this field however I do have an ex-boyfriend that is in the field of computer technology. I would say he’s a computer or IT nerd. If you didn’t know that’s a complement. They make a comfortable living, 9 out of 10 they have beautiful women as wives or girlfriends and they are the ones that have IT start ups and become billionaires. So, ladies if your pretty good with computers find your niche in that field and get it popping.    

If you haven’t noticed, the trend in each one of these career fields are time and education. Education comes with hard work. Whatever you do in order to be successful you have to work. To get respect in your field you have to be diligent and professional in order to be taken seriously. Every career path doesn’t always require traditional education, but I can assure you that you will need to have vast knowledge in your chosen field along with consistency, progression, and determination. Anything is achievable if you want it, so if you want to be a boss b!tch don’t talk about it be about it and get to work.

Wine can be that cocktail in disguise that makes you feel that its okay to drink 4 to 5 glasses, then when you least expect it it sneaks up on you and your loaded with liquid fun. Whenever that happens I’m at a friends or with family. I never seem to be the one to pick out the wine for special events or get togethers. When I drink wine I have three go to’s that I choose from, Riesling, White Zinfandel, and Champs (Champagne). As you can see I’m a white girl, well a white wine girl that is.

I personally do not know a lot about wine. All I know is what I like and what I like taste good. So, if your anything like me the knowledge that goes with choosing wine along with the how’s and why’s you know nothing about, and your lost like a missing needle in a hey stack. I have found a few tips on choosing a bottle of wine for the first time. I’m more than sure that these tips will help you on your wine purchasing journey because they have helped me.

Read the label

I know the bottle is pretty and the price may be a little fancy, but read the label.

While wines that say “table wine” or “California wine” might be perfectly delicious, they also raise red flags. “These wines are composed of grapes from a very large region (a state or even an entire country) and, although sometimes just fine in quality, tend to be noticeably bland or unbalanced,” says Turley.

Know your adjectives

Know what sweet, fruity, dry and other descriptions mean.

“There is a difference between a sweet wine and one that is fruit-forward,” notes Turley. “Sweet wines, like a port or some Rieslings, tend to be more syrupy, which is wine’s way of exhibiting sweetness. But a wine may have a nose of tropical fruit and honeysuckle but, upon tasting, are crisp, clean and wash out the mouth in a quick flush.”

When in doubt? Go for a rosé

Yes! Lets take the lead of Rickie Rose’ (Rick Ross the raper) and pop a bottle of rose’

“A crisp, dry rosé will have refreshing acidity and lively effervescence to help accent most dishes,” says Turley. “Rosés also work especially well with cheese plates.”

I hope these few tips help with your next wine purchase. Lets stay on this wine trip together and learn more about the world of wine. Check back with PrettynPoppington on our lifestyle page for more wine post.
