“#GIRLBOSS is a movement– A philosophy for making your work life as fun, fresh and raunchy as your personal adventures. Sophia encourages us to own the qualities we’ve previously been ashamed of… in order to become the masters of our own destiny, financially independent and radically ourselves. I’m so in.” – Lena Dunham
Sophia Amoruso, owner of Nasty Gal Boutique, wrote an absolute must-read. #GIRLBOSS is inspiring women all over the world to achieve their dreams with hustle and persistence. This is a movement the fearlessly feminine girls can’t wait to rally with. There’s no sugarcoating it with this girl, but that’s just how I prefer it. Her sharp wit and bold vernacular hit you with a thunderstorm of inspiration and motivation. Add her colorful personality and clever comedy and you feel as if you’re talking to the Nasty Gal founder herself.
I love that she owns the fact that every aspect of her life led her to where she is today. She was refreshingly honest about her inability to be on time, petty crime stages and her less than perfect report cards; even the jobs she wished she didn’t need to have pointed her to some greater truth about herself. No matter what situation she found herself in, she always seemed to discover a learning experience in the midst of it.
#GIRLBOSS is out there for the women who work for it, the women who own their shit each day in every way. Girl Bosses never settle for less and continue to challenge themselves in everything they do, always seeking new information. They don’t apologize for their style, passion or the way they live their life. These are the women who are truly passionate about what they do and treat each day like a new adventure; they eat, sleep and breathe it. They determine their own success. They’re strong and confident, they use trial and error to give way to wisdom. They smile effortlessly because they’re actually happy with where they are in life and laugh without fear of what tomorrow brings. Because these girls have it covered – no matter what life throws their way.
#GIRLBOSS is for you. Just fucking read it.
