I am honored to be a guest blogger this week on

I know what you're thinking:
Wow, what better website for Cindi to blog on than one about being bossy!
But, seriously....

This website was founded in a response to the #banbossy campaign by Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg. The four bloggers who started This Is Bossy are writers and moms from across the US, from California to South Carolina, who agree that the wholesale banning of a word like "bossy" is a little extreme.

Rather than making bossy a bad word, let's focus on raising girls up and celebrating the innate character traits they possess that make them strong, powerful, opinionated and unique. 
We started this movement because . . .
We Are Bossy
