Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

In the New York Times bestseller that the Washington Post called Lean In for misfits, Sophia Amoruso shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world.

Amoruso spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels. By age twenty-two she had dropped out of school, and was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school--a job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay.

Flash forward to today, and she's the founder of Nasty Gal and the founder and CEO of Girlboss. Sophia was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #GIRLBOS for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.

#GIRLBOS proves that being successful isn't about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school. It's about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.

A witty and cleverly told account . . . It's this kind of honest advice, plus Read More chevron_right

   Helpful but not very relatable
I knew nothing about Sophia or Nasty Gal before picking up this book. I read it because it was on so many lists for "career books", "inspirational books", etc. The book kept me engrossed even though it's not in the field I have any desire to go into and even though I would say I'm quite different from Sophia. There were funny, interesting stories. It has given me a push to make a career change, to not be afraid, to steer away from the 'traditional' way of life, to take chances. I was reminded that the worst that could happen in a career/job change is that you don't like it and have to find another - so what? Other jobs are out there. It gave me the reassurance I needed. I didn't give it 5 stars because I felt that some of it was slow/rambling and I felt that some stuff just didn't apply to me, making it hard to relate.
