The Book: #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso – CEO and Founder of Nasty Gal
I’ll admit that I was caught off guard by how refreshingly down-to-earth this book is. Sophia Amoruso founded and heads one of the most successful and well-known fashion retail sites, and yet somehow by the last page you feel as if you’re reading the words of the best friend you grew up with, or perhaps mores the strange older girl who took you on like a little sister. More importantly, #GIRLBOSS (and yes that hashtag is thrown in throughout the book – we’re not really sure how we feel about it…) is chalk full of real-life wisdom that anyone can put into action. Amorous also provides a glimpse into the lives of other successful women via sections entitled Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS. What I think is most powerful though, is how I felt after finishing the book. Capable. Determined. Motivated. And FREE.
I would definitely recommend.
