Gals, I needed to share this book with you and couldn’t wait another second. #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso is one of the most inspiring books I’ve ever read. Before her 30th birthday, Sophia Amoruso built Nasty Gal, a multi-million dollar clothing company, from the ground up.

This book is for intelligent, curious girls who maybe feel like their dreams and a practical career don’t mesh. Becoming a #GIRLBOSS isn’t easy, though, and she makes that quite clear in the story of her journey. But Sophia wasn’t afraid of a little hard work (and neither am I!). Our twenties are an incredibly tumultuous time and it can be difficult to see an end result through all the life changes. Sophia built a multi-million dollar company from an eBay store and a pile vintage clothing. And that #GIRLBOSS worked.¬†After reading her book, Sophia makes me feel like I can be a #GIRLBOSS, too.

Through every boring, mind-numbing job, through every failure, there is always a reason to get back up. So go get ’em, #GIRLBOSSES. Grab life, work HARD, and don’t let go.

Thank you, Sophia, for sharing your story and brutally honest career advice. You’ve inspired me and many other brand-new #GIRLBOSSES to stop working at menial jobs, explore our entrepreneurial dreams and live our most genuine lives.

XO, J
