“There are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure.” – Sophia Amoruso
I was so excited to start reading this book and I can promise you if you grab a copy and dive in, you will be happy you did!
Sophia Amoruso is the Founder and CEO of NastyGal, a women’s clothing store that sells unique apparel, accessories and shoes. She didn’t start at the top however, actually she started with nothing, and her story of success is truly inspiring. In her book, #GirlBoss, she shares what she has learned along the way in her career and building her empire.
“It just means that your talents lie elsewhere, so take the opportunity to seek out what you are good at, and find a place where you can flourish. Once you do, you’re going to kill it.” – Sophia Amoruso
While some books may say they are open and honest, I have never read a book more raw and unapologetic as #GirlBoss. One of my favorite parts of her book is when Amoruso talks about the not so ideal, to put it mildly, jobs that she had that she says saved her life. I believe that every bad experience, or in her case job, that you have will teach you so much in the long run.
Since embarking on this blogging journey, I have done so much research and read tons of advice from different entrepreneurs and influential people. So far, #GirlBoss has been my favorite book I have read! The tips and advice that are you will find are practical, down to earth and relatable. Reading this book is like having coffee with an old friend, a friend who is wise and tells it like it is. Sophia Amoruso hits the nail on the head when it comes to being patient, working hard and going after what you want!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to become their own #GirlBoss! “Compete with yourself, not with others.”
