Last week I bought the book “#Girlboss” written by the creator, CEO, and general all around bad ass boss lady of Nasty Gal Sophia Amoruso. Now let me preface this by saying that my attention span is very short sometimes, especially when reading books. I really…I mean REALLY, have to be interested in the subject matter to finish reading one and if I am, I breeze through it in a few days. Which is what I did with this book. I felt like she was talking straight to ME. Like a homegirl that wrote a special manual to help me succeed. The experiences that Amoruso describes on her journey resonated with mine so much. From the terrible jobs, to the changing your style several times in a journey to finds oneself. However not only is she telling her story she is also giving advice that she has actually used herself. From how to write a proper resume, to saving money and self help tips. This book is the necessary tool for anyone who needs a boost and confirmation that they are on the right path.
For me the book was confirmation and guidance. I don’t want to give any parts away for any of you that are considering reading it but it full of quotes and stories from other #girlbosses too! Even if you are not into fashion you should still pick up. It’s an easy read and at the end of they day Girls can be bosses in any industry or profession they choose. #hello!
“Each time you make a good decision or do something nice or take care of yourself; each time you show up to work and work hard and do your best at everything you can do, you’re planting seeds for a life that you can only hope will grow beyond your wildest dreams. Take care of the little things—even the little things that you hate—and treat them as promises to your own future. Soon you’ll see that fortune favors the bold who get shit done.”
