If you are new to these shores, you might not know I am a bit on a book-reading kick. In my last Amazon haul I picked up #GIRLBOSS , and let me just tell you, this book, like its author just kicks ass! Sophia got me at
‘A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it’
For those of you who don’t know who Sophia Amoruso is – it’s ok, I didn’t know who she was before this book either! – she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal a multi million dollars worthy on line fashion retailer which just started with little Sophia selling vintage clothes on eBay, no longer than 6 years ago after a period of hitchhiking, stealing, dumpster diving and very boring jobs.
There’s no way to make this book any justice by just describing it to you, it is not a biography, is not a book of how to become a millioner or successful in 10 easy steps. I would say it is simply the life lesson’s Sophia learnt from her life journey which are very much inspiring. My personal favourites: Failure is your invention and Follow your gut and know which rules to follow and to break. The cherry on the top is Sophia’s plainspoken writing style matched with the beautiful illustrations which will probably be printed and hanged in my wall of inspiration pretty soon.
If you can’t tell I am hooked. I’ve seen part of myself here and there in the book, boring jobs – check – vegan to meat lover – check, preppy to grungy style – hell yeah, check and check! This book had me highlighting, laughing and gasping Thank God I am not alone! I’ve been recommending this book to every living soul with this book and now it’s your turn…
