Nicole Lapin used to be financially illiterate and now she’s — in her own words — a “boss bitch.” Nicole joined us on Bold TV to discuss women and money, her new book and how we can all become boss bitches.

Sarah Hill, the CEO of Bookstr, also joined Nicole to discuss her newest book, “Boss Bitch,” as well as her first book, “Rich Bitch,” which hit #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list.
Nicole hopes her books will increase and improve conversations about finances and business with women. She said, “We’ll talk about everything at the dinner table with ladies — like, everything — before we talk about money and business. So I was hoping to open up that dialogue.”
As a first-generation American, who started her career at 18 with zero financial literacy, Nicole has plenty of experience with success and failure.
She said she’s learned to stop people pleasing. She said, “You can’t be all things to all people. If you’re all things to all people, you’re nothing to no one.”
Her provocative book title was a risk that’s paid off. She said it’s taking the word “bitch” back.
While she was initially called a bitch in a derogatory way, Nicole eventually interpreted it as a compliment. She said,
“What they meant was I was strong, I was powerful, I was ambitious. That not only did I want a seat at the table, but I wanted a voice, and if that meant I was a bitch, then boom I’m a bitch! And I own that!”
