WHAT is it about: #Girlboss is a dreamy book written by Sophia Amoruso, the CEO and creative director of Nasty Gal. Sophia tells her story from her very rebellious beginnings when her life consisted of dumpster diving, mediocre day jobs (ranging from sandwich making at subway to a shoe salesperson) and even petty theft! She has since changed her life and now runs a huge retailing company thats worth over $100 million dollars with about 400 employees!
For WHO: This book is great for any of our dreamers! It’s motivational, witty and creative. Being in college, I felt empowered and motivated to accomplish extraordinary feats after reading the book; my sister, still in high school, was just as mesmerized and influenced by it.

WHY to read: Its perfect for vacation, the beach or even the train! #Girlboss teaches us life lessons: do what you love, think outside the box be creative, failure is important for growth, if you want something ask for it, nothing is below you, and save 10% of your earnings. She also gives advice on business and relationships (both personal and professional). At the beginning of the summer, it was even on the New York Times best selling non-fiction novel list for six weeks! So go ahead and let your inner #girlboss enjoy this book! While the book was overall exceptional, it is these two pieces of advice that have since remained engraved in my memory, A #GIRLBOSS takes her life seriously without taking herself too seriously. She takes chances and takes responsibility on her own terms. She knows when to throw punches and when to roll with them. When to button up and when to let her freak flag fly. I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Dont ever grow up. Dont become a bore. Dont let The Man get to you. OK? Cool. Then lets do this.
