Currently Reading: #GIRLBOSS

I downloaded #GIRLBOSS to read on my daily commute. It was on the popular list on iTunes and looked like a fairly quick read. I'd like to think of myself as a #GIRLBOSS but after reading this book, I definitely have a long way to go before I reach Sophia's level of boss. In this book Sophia Amoruso - founder and CEO of Nasty Gal - talks all about her life before Nasty Gal and what life is like now that the company has become massive. 

I really admire Sophia's work ethic and how she built Nasty Gal. What started out as an EBay shop is now a multi million dollar empire and every ounce of the company's integrity is still intact. #GIRLBOSS really gave me some great tips that I can apply to this blog and my life in general!

My favourite excerpt from the book: 

“That’s the number one thing, perhaps even the only thing, you can absolutely count on. Regardless of what your dreams are, if you listen only to those around you, the chances of your dreams coming true are very small. The world loves to tell you how difficult things are, and the world’s not exaggerating. And that’s a real bummer. But, here’s the real sh*t: You can’t have it all, and nothing comes easy. You will make sacrifices and compromises, get let down and let other people down, fail and start over, break some hearts, take some names, and learn to pick up and continue when your own heart gets broken. But difficult doesn’t mean impossible, and out of the bajillions of things in this universe that you can’t control, what you can control is how hard you try, and if or when to pack it in.” 

If you agreed with that paragraph - then you will definitely love the entire book. I give #GIRLBOSS five stars - a must read for every girl!
