In 2002, Sophia Amoruso was hitchhiking up and down the West Coast, dumpster diving for meals and dabbling in petty thievery.
Fast forward to 2014: Sophia Amoruso is the Founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, the fastest growing online fashion retailer in the country. Amoruso’s debut book, #GIRLBOSS, chronicles her adventurous rise to becoming one of today’s most celebrated young entrepreneurs.
Part memoir and part business book with an edge, #GIRLBOSS is a sassy and irreverent look at Amoruso’s extraordinary personal journey filled with insights on entrepreneurship and career advice for young women.
As Amoruso writes, “A #GIRLBOSS is someone who’s in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it. As a #GIRLBOSS, you take control and accept responsibility . . .You know where you’re going, but can’t do it without having some fun along the way…You’re going to take over the world, and change it in the process. You’re a badass . . .”
#GIRLBOSS is not a how-to manual to getting rich quick, breaking into the fashion industry, or starting a business. Instead, Amoruso teaches you how to learn from your own mistakes, play to your strengths, and know when to follow the rules and when to rewrite them. #GIRLBOSS is the millennial manifesto for harnessing creativity and leaving your mark on the world.
