The Daily Find: #GIRLBOSS by Nasty Gal CEO Sophia Amoruso

I stocked up on summer reading as I knew I was going to have to spend quite some time on planes, in the car, and in hotel rooms this summer. I prefer a mix of light fiction, a good long novel like A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, and at least one nonfiction book. This summer I just knew I had to check out #GIRLBOSS by Nasty Gal CEO Sophia Amoruso. To be honest, when it comes to business reading, I usually prefer books by men. I admit I skipped Lean In entirely. I love Good to Great by Jim Collins and the case studies in the Harvard Business Review. But the you-go-girl chick inside me couldn't resist that bad ass cover on #GIRLBOSS. The proof is in the pudding as well; Sophia Amoruso (a broke community-college dropout like myself) started Nasty Gal from her bedroom in 2006. In 2012 she reached nearly $100 million in sales. Like all nonfiction advice books, it states some pretty basic tidbits, but it's these basic tips that I find I need to be reminded of; like her best piece of advice being if something produces great results, repeat it. If something you're doing doesn't produce results, scrap it! I think business owners and creative people have trouble with this. It's hard to let go of our ideas. And sometimes it's hard to know when something will work if we just keep at it, or if it's time to let it go and move onto something else. Amoruso also weaves in case studies of her best colleagues as well as her personal story, which is quite an interesting read itself. And while I do love business books that go into detail on spreadsheets, overhead costs, PR, branding, etc., this book is all about the challenges and rise of Nasty Gal, the folks who helped her along the way, and specific things Sophia did to become so successful. #GIRLBOSS is business advice for the underdog, for the go-getter, for the girl (or guy) who will do whatever it takes to live the dream. It's available in hardcover, paperback, audio, and for Kindle. Click here to buy #GIRLBOSS!
