#GIRLBOSS is more than a book and Sophia Amoruso is more than a purveyor of (fine and fly) garments. #GIRLBOSS is a movement - a philosophy for making your work life as fun, fresh and raunchy as your personal adventures. Sophia encourages us to own the qualities we've previously been ashamed of (bossiness, crudeness, petty thievery) in order to become the masters of our own destiny, financially independent and radically ourselves. I'm so in (Lena Dunham)

In the space of ten years, Sophia Amoruso has gone from high-school dropout to founder and Executive Chairman of Nasty Gal, one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world.
Sophia's never been a typical executive, or a typical anything, and she's written #Girlboss for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success.
Filled with brazen wake-up calls, cunning and frank observations, and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal's meteoric rise, #Girlboss covers a lot of ground. It proves that success doesn't come from where you went to college or how popular you were in school. Success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which to break.
Inspiring, motivating and empowering, #Girlboss will give you the kick up the ass you need to reach your potential.

Interesting fact: while I never bought anything from Nasty Gal, I of course knew it existed, but never followed it closely. Little did I know, that the Nasty Gal empire fell following financial struggles as well as legal issues and layoffs. In 2015 the company filed for bankruptcy in late 2016 and was acquired for [merely] $20m, a mere fraction of Nasty Gal's valuation just two years prior... So.
I am off to watch the Neflix original series of "Girlboss" now (which was cancelled after one season and which Fanity Fair claims to be the Netflix's "first truly terrible show"...).
Sooo... don't focus on the negative - go get sh** done! (And yes, remember, it is great to be an introvert!)
I would highly recommend this to anyone who is in need of a confidence boost at work or someone who plans on working their way up the ladder!
