Sophia Amoruso is an interesting and inspiring millennial. She is the founder of one of the fastest-growing retailers on the planet, Nasty Gal and the author of #Girlboss, a book about her and the company’s story. The business began with selling off vintage clothing and accessories on eBay, currently she is the leader of internationally recognised brand and business.
#Girlboss isn’t a typical self-help personal development handbook; it’s more like a good peptalk given by a person who transformed her hobby into an outstanding company and shares her real life experiences through the pages.
“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.” – says Amoruso at the beginning of the publication.
This book is far better as a story than as a business guide – which is probably why Netflix is turning it into a TV show.
#Girlboss is a combination of a memoir, a manifesto and a business book. It won’t explain to the reader how to reach success but it can give a few ideas and it’s definitely a great reading experience. Amoruso’s book could inspire young people who are thinking about setting up a business.
The book is available on amazon.co.uk and amazon.com.
