Hi, guys welcome back to Where Stephanie Reads. In this book review, I will be discussing a book I recently read called #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso. I was really excited to read this book because I recently watched the Netflix show Girlboss based on Sophia’s life and how she started her business. For those who have heard of Sophia Amoruso, she is well-known for her online business Nasty Gal which is online clothing store where she sells vintage.
In #Girlboss, Sophia talks about how she started her business and also shares her experiences. Sophia started out with not a lot of money or should I say broke and then started an eBay store back in the day when Myspace was popular. She named the store Nasty Gal and became a success. But after she got kicked off Ebay and then moved to her own site where she turned her store into a successful clothing store. Sophia becomes the CEO in under 8 years since starting her journey.
The book was so good that I read it in two days. The is a combination of a business book, and a memoir with humor as well. I enjoyed reading about how Sophia started out at the bottom and then built herself up with just an idea. I also think she got to be one of the smartest people and I liked how regardless of what challenges came her way she kept on going. The book had a ton of advice and I recommend it for anyone who wants to take the plunge to start a business but need the inspiration. My favorite part of the book is that it’s kind of a business book but it more of what Sophia learned on the journey.
