#GirlBoss- a book review

IMG_20151117_135445

Why be a #GirlBoss?

I believe this book came across my Facebook newsfeed because Erica Patterson at Yellow Jacket Social  had just read it.  Since she enjoyed it, I figured it was a must read.  So off I went to grab the book by Sophia Amoruso (the book can be purchased here.)  It is, indeed, a great book for any business woman out there who wants some motivation!

Who is Sophia Amoruso?

I admit, I walked into this book blind.  Perhaps I live under a rock, but I had never heard of Sophia Amoruso OR NastyGal.  If there are any of you out there who are as clueless as me, Sophia Amoruso is the founder and CEO of NastyGal, a BOOMING online fashion retail store.  Her success has been fast and it has been huge.  This book tells the story of her accelerated climb to fame and her tips to other #GirlBosses.

The Best Business Advice

It is not new advice, but it is great advice.  If you want financial success, the best advice out there is: Spend less than you make!   So simple, and yet so difficult for so many of us.  Sophia reminds  us that this is crucial.  And, honestly, if you are being a true #GirlBoss and getting shit done, there shouldn’t be much time left for shopping sprees and useless spending.  KEEP BUSY!

 

I Recommend #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

Although this book has nothing to do with being a Doula, it still has valuable information for ANY woman in business.  I enjoyed the light, funny, and easy-to-read voice this book was written in.  The book got me all fired  up to kick some ass and be a #GirlBoss that Sophia would be proud of!
