It is important to understand that the term “lazy girl jobs” does not mean one is unproductive or lazy. The term is about achieving a work and life balance. It is about having opportunities for enjoyment in both career and personal lives.

“It’s called the “lazy girl jobs” not because we’re being lazy, it’s an anti-hustle dig… Everything that I’m talking here is considered as lazy if you compare it to the toxic corporate workplace expectations,” added Gabrielle.

Gabrielle explains that a “lazy girl job” is one who is capable to pay the bills while enjoying life outside of work (regardless of gender). Far from stressful hours of traditional work, the concept promotes remote and light work.

“Lazy girl jobs” are about having a balance between professional and personal spaces.
