In #GirlBoss, Sophia Amoruso, a well-known American fashionista, shares her wisdom and inspiration with women who are also seeking success.
While less conventional than other female business moguls, Amoruso stands on her own after rising from her days of dumpster-diving to eBay saleswoman to CEO of her own worldwide company.
Her business, Nasty Girl, started as a self-funded enterprise in her aunt's basement. In a few years, she was reporting revenues more than $10 million - all without so much as a college degree!
In her book, Amoruso, explains to girls and women, in her unique way, that they must shed gender stereotypes and embrace others to forge ahead. Her most important piece of advice? Amoruso says girls must be bossy if they are going to make their own way.
She says women must be in charge of their lives, to receive everything wanted out of life - not because it's been handed to her, but because she's earned it. A girl boss must be a fighter, must hold themselves accountable and take responsibility for their success, and know when to follow the rules and when to break them. A girl boss knows when to have fun and when to get serious. Most importantly, a girl boss knows herself and has a clear idea of where she is going and how she's going to get there.
The New York Times calls Amoruso "The Cinderella of Tech". It's not a far-off description of a woman who rose from rags to riches via the Internet and is now inviting her favorite girlfriends to the Palace Ball.
Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso tells her Ebay to empire story. Sophia's story is inspiring me to turn my passion into a career. This is not really a how to conquer the business world guide, but rather helpful tips on what to do and avoid. The narration is well done and the message is clear.... Anything is possible if you have the determination and drive. I was given this review copy and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Summary: GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso was a good quick read. This talked about American fashionista, Sophia Amoruso. Also how she became successful after dumpster diving.
I don't normally choose to listen to a summary of a book, but I am glad I did.
Alice Bailey has captured the essence of GirlBoss very well in this condensed version. Grabbing the highlights and lessons of Sophia Amoruso's book, you gain realistic insight on how to improve areas of your work life.
If you are short on time and want to gather some great information from GirlBoss, this book is for you.
Danley Stone does an excellent job narrating this book. She has a clear, easy listening voice.
