#GIRLBOSS | Sophia Amoruso
THE RUNAWAY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasntfashionit was a stolen book. She spent her teenshitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpsterdiving. By twenty-two, she had resigned herself toemployment, but was still broke, directionless, andworking a mediocre day job shed taken for thehealth insurance.It was there that Sophia decided to start sellingvintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is thefounder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal,a $100 million plus online fashion retailer withmore than 350 employees. Sophias never been atypical CEO, or a typical anything, and shes written#GIRLBOSS for outsiders (and insiders) seekinga unique path to success, even when that path iswinding as all hell and lined with naysayers.#GIRLBOSS includes Sophias story, yet isinfinitely bigger than Sophia. Its deeply personalyet universal. Filled with brazen wake-up calls(You are not a special snowflake), cunning andfrank observations (Failure is your invention),and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Galsmeteoric rise, #GIRLBOSS covers a lot of ground.It proves that being successful isnt about how popularyou were in high school or where you went tocollege (if you went to college). Rather, success isabout trusting your instincts and following your gut,knowing which rules to follow and which to break.A #GIRLBOSS takes her life seriously without taking herself too seriously. She takes chances and takes responsibility on her own terms. . She knows when to throw punches and when to roll with them. When to button up and when to let her freak flag fly.As Sophia writes, I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Dont ever grow up. Dont become a bore. Dont let The Man get to you. OK? Cool. Then lets do this.

I‘m always a little skeptical about these “you can do anything if you just try” books, but Amoruso seems a lot more genuine than many super-successful young people. She doesn‘t shy away from talking about her mistakes and she makes it clear that her rise to the top wouldn‘t have happened without several missteps along the way.

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I forget which streaming service it was on but there was briefly a show about her story as well. Just one season I think. 2mo

I liked the memoir parts of the book but not her business advice so much.

“The concept of success is really weird. Is success building a beloved brand & business? Or is it how you handle yourself when it gets hard? Is success being in the right place at the right time—with the right voice, skill set, team, and drive to cobble it all together? Or is success figuring out how to tame the behemoth once it sprouts legs & sharp teeth?”

IMO we all have our own definition of success.

I'm thinking about writing a piece on Medium about girl bosses. It has occurred to me that I should read the book first. I am not looking forward to it, but I am sure it will be a learning experience.

A quick and easy read. While I can‘t say I got anything new or exciting out of the listen it still is great to hear about women building a great successful business.

I went into this book not knowing a thing about the author or her company. For #readharder2019 #businessbook. I actually liked it more than I expected. I don‘t think any of her advice is life changing, nor do I agree with all of it but she does have an interesting and unique story. I liked that she featured other #girlboss women as well

This was a quick and easy read, but I didn‘t find any of the information valuable. I pressed to finish it because I was too far in to not see it through, but I found the author to be redundant and self obsessed.

I finished this audiobook in one afternoon of #audiomealprepping.
Before this book, I had never heard of Nasty Gal Vintage, or Sophia Amoruso, and I am not really interested in the fashion world. But I thought Sophia gave good advice, in general. She talked about being a woman in a "man's world", how to be a good employee/boss, how to manage your money. I especially enjoyed her chapters on intentional thinking.

Each time you make a good decision or do something nice or take care of yourself; each time you show up to work and work hard and do your best at everything you can do, you‘re planting seeds for a life that you can only hope will grow beyond your wildest dreams. Take care of the little things—even the little things that you hate—and treat them as promises to your own future. Soon you‘ll see that fortune favors the bold who get shit done.

I actually read this book because I had heard Netflix was coming out with a series loosely based on it. I appreciated Sophia's anecdotes, many of which were funny and light-hearted, but more often than not the book came across to me as the cool girl who wants to pretend she's not. I'm in awe of what Sophia has done with Nasty Gal and all that she has accomplished in such a short period of time but #GIRLBOSS reads as inauthentic.

#Sassy 💃🏻 #AndItsAugust | #Girlboss by #SophiaAmoruso #TBR but I have watched the #Netflix show! - By age 22 Sophia 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 she decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Flash forward to today, and she‘s the founder of #NastyGal and the #founder and #CEO of #Girlboss. #TBR

This book was a fun summer read. I loved the attitude throughout the book and at some points I was laughing out loud! This was a quick read and a very enjoyable one. I thought it became a little dull at moments, but those few moments quickly passed. I loved how this book was more than a self-help book, but it actually told a story.

It really inspired me to be the change I want to be not for anyone but for myself and if I ever want something done i need to try my hardest to persevere and have the will power.
