    10 Lessons On Being A Boss At Work From Nicki Minaj

    You're smart, capable, pushy, and make mistakes. Because you're the boss.

    1. Recognize the double standards that assertive women face.

    2. Don't worry about being nice to everyone all the time.

    "Ain't got time to talk, just Hi and Bye bitch!" Minaj raps on Drake's "Make Me Proud." Society wants women to be nice and neatly manageable but Minaj does the opposite and it's made her career more dynamic than those of her peers. And if you scare a few people because they're not used to a prim and proper, clean-mouthed lady, then so be it!

    3. Be a trailblazer in your field.

    4. And remember and recognize all the women who paved the way for you.

    5. Always be getting money.

    6. Don't let men in power tell you what you're worth, you tell them what you're worth.

    7. Make loud and clear decisions.

    8. And flaunt your achievements proudly.

    9. Run with the boys in power, and don't shy away from the goal of taking their place.

    10. And remember, you’re going to make mistakes, but that's okay.

    Because you were born bossed-up.
