Solid Investment: #GIRLBOSS by Nasty Gal Founder and CEO Sophia Amoruso


“Sophia’s a badass bitch and she’ll always be a badass bitch!” That I’ve managed to build a company where an assistant feels comfortable calling the CEO a badass bitch in a room full of senior executives is pretty amazing. – Sophia Amoruso in “#GIRLBOSS

I needed this book, and I don’t know your life, but so do you. As soon as I opened the cover, BAM, it jumped at me, kicked my mental walls down and convinced me that I too could be a successful badass bitch. I mean, #GIRLBOSS.

In her refreshing, “tell it like it is” memoir, Sophia Amoruso delivers a story about her trek from dumpster diver to CEO of a $100 million company. It’s a book told in a manner suitable for any sort of character at any point in their life. From her “crust punk” days to developing a store via eBay to becoming the incarnation of what Nasty Gal has become and will be, her journey is worth knowing about.

#GIRLBOSSes understand the importance of saving their money, how to wear multiple vocational hats, and the proper way to hire, fire and get employed.

#GIRLBOSSes are able to charge through adversity, earn respect and play clean, not dirty. They wear what they want and wear it well. They are genuine and own their individuality.

The nuggets of advice are plentiful in #GIRLBOSS, but here are a few teasers from the book:

– There are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure.

– 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.

– You have to kick people out of your head as forcefully as you’d kick someone out of your house if you don’t want them there.

– You create the world, blink by blink. It is entirely yours to discover and yours to create.

– When life hits you with something unexpected, you have to be prepared to hit right back.

– Compete with yourself, not with others.

These quotes merely scratch the surface of the #RealTalk Amoruso dishes out. #GIRLBOSS is a solid investment for those who want to take responsibility of their lives and strive to slam down mediocrity.

  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first
    comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any tips and hints for novice
    blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.


    1. I’m definitely not a pro, but here are my tips!

      The best starting point is to write about what you know and love, create an overall theme, try to stick to that theme (but it’s totally cool to expand), create a schedule so there aren’t wide gaps of no content, try to keep to that schedule and have fun with it! Some of the best blogs teaches people something or introduces them to something. They want to be able to relate to you. Hope that helps!
