I don’t know why it took me so long to finally crack this book open.
If you are in any way shape or form looking to elevate your mindset, start your own business or just kind of feeling stuck in your current situation- READ THIS BOOK! I would consider this book to be the “Lean In” equivalent for millennials.
#Girlboss, written by Sophia Amoruso is both a memoir & life advice book. Sophia was always an outsider, dropped out of college & kind of just stumbled through life. Until she started an EBay business selling vintage clothing. She finally found something she was good at & something that held her interest. And she was killing it. Cut to years later, Sophia is the CEO of Nasty Gal and Girlboss. This college dropout is now the head of multi-million dollar companies.
I love how Sophia offers her unique point of view of how she became successful. It’s not by going to the right college or landing the perfect job. Success is all about hustle and heart. It’s about putting in the work, having a plan & readjusting the plan when Plan A doesn’t work out. She talks about knowing when to listen & knowing when to speak up.
Sophia also talked about being a woman in power amongst a bunch of men. In this day & age, it’s becoming more common for women to run the show. Sophia is proof that you can be a woman in charge, a boss babe. And make just as much money, if not more than any man. Traditional gender roles are changing & women are taking back their power.
Her invaluable advice is SO inspiring. I could not get enough of this book! My favorite piece of advice is probably to know when to play by the rules & when to break them. As an aspiring entrepreneur, I really took this advice to heart. Sometimes you just have to pave your own way to success. And most importantly have fun doing it!
If you are thinking about kick starting your career or have a business idea-bottom line just start now. And pick up this book to put you in the ultimate boss babe mindset!
