This is basically the book I will write once I have made my millions. Style and tone-wise that is.
Filled with nuggets of wisdom, practical advice, and a bit of memoir this book packs a powerful and empowering punch.
Starting a business from eBay and growing to a multi million dollar corporation took her years of dedicated hard work and for me that is the biggest take away here. Work your ass off and do so steadily and you will see progress.
A quick and worthwhile read.
I would recommend this not only for women, but also for men. Any person who is interested in getting some inspiration for their entrepreneurial endeavors.
Amoruso spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels. By age twenty-two she had dropped out of school, and was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school—a job she’d taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay.
Flash forward to today, and she’s the founder of Nasty Gal and the founder and CEO of Girlboss. Sophia was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she’s written #GIRLBOSS for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.
#GIRLBOSS proves that being successful isn’t about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school. It’s about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.
