[Epub] ➞ #GIRLBOSS ➣ Sophia Amoruso – Submitalink.info Funny, entertaining, sassy, sarcastic, and incredibly smart Amoruso manages to bring her funny sarcastic personality onto these pages while seriously teaching about what it means takes to be a girlboss I took so much from this book and I have a strong feeling I ll be rereading it once I m done with university The balance between the casual narration style and spot on intelligent business life advice is fantastic It makes reading it so easy and 100% struck a nerve with me Pick this up I so wanted this to be good, but after reading the introduction, I knew that I was probably not going to enjoy it After she addressed the issue of whether or not her book was a feminist manifesto by saying that she believes in showing up and owning it not whining for equality, I was pretty much soured on everything else she had to say But I persevered And while there were some good parts of the book she does have some interesting things to say about venture capitalism and hiring and firing there were so many other things that made me want to throw the book against the wall in abject frustration For a book that purports to be about women who don t take themselves too seriously, I don t think I have ever read a book by a person who took themselves MORE seriously The most frustrating part for me was when she said that she didn t believe in luck Like this multimillion dollar company that she built up from nothing, which experienced unprecedented levels of growth such that industry professionals were all agog, exists simply because Sophia Amoruso was the first person in the world to discover working hard, and there were no outside forces outside of her control that influenced the situation and helped her to get there And then, after those few paragraphs, she goes on to talk about chaos magic and positive thinking not like The Secret but basically if you think positively, things will happen for you and says, If you let yourself meander a bit, the right things an Da Ragazzina, Sophia Amoruso Girava In Autostop, Rubacchiava Nei Grandi Magazzini E Rovistava Nei Cassonetti Della Spazzatura A Ventidue Anni, Per Campare, Sembrava Ormai Rassegnata A Un Mediocre Lavoro Impiegatizio Con Tutta La Frustrazione E La Mancanza Di Stimoli Che Questo Comportava Fu A Quel Punto Che Un Giorno Decise Di Vendere Vestiti Vintage Su EBay Otto Anni Dopo, Sophia Crea La Nasty Gal, Un Impresa On Line Da 100 Milioni Di Dollari, Con 350 Dipendenti, Un Autentico Impero Della Moda Una Storia Vera Come Quella Di Steve Jobs E Di Mark Zuckerberg Alla Quale Sophia Ha Dato Una Definitiva, Forte E Frizzante Impronta Femminile Sophia Non Mai Stata Un Tipico Imprenditore N Un Tipico Alcunch Viene Dalla Strada Ha Scritto GirlBoss Per Raccontare La Propria Ricetta Per Il Successo Una Storia Molto Personale Che Pu Valere Per Tutti. I had never even heard of Nasty Gal when I picked this e book from the library But the title seemed fun and I always enjoy reading business books especially ones that tackle the unique issues that face women.But this This is not that book.I ll say this Sophia has done a great job of getting where she is now She s obviously creative and obviously hard working But I don t know who this book is written for It is mainly biographical which is fine but then has these girlboss lessons that made me cringe One page will assume you ve never put together a decent resume and then a few pages later it s giving you advice about how you can t be friends with your direct reports It seems to assume that I have no business experience and am in charge of people mainly because that s what Sophia dealt with absolutely no business experience or formalized business education and was in charge of her own business Which is awesome for her but rare that others will go on that sort of girlboss trajectory Also, it s extremely difficult to read the book and she s mentioning that in meetings she gets annoyed when people don t talk to her directly because they assume she doesn t know what she s talking about but then says she often makes people repeat themselves a number of times until she unde It s overwhelmingly clear from the book that Sophia Amoruso is a hard worker She s dedicated to her business, she s extremely talented at what she does, and I suspect she d be pretty fun to attend a party with even thought she would probably make you wear silver leather pants That being said, this book just didn t do it for me Amoruso neglects the fascinating elements of her story, like the fact that she went from being the youngest person at a San Francisco Marxist book club and eating dumpster bagels to being a CEO with a brand new Porsche I don t mean to slam her for changing her mind on capitalism, but it would have been very interesting and pretty informative to see exactly how that transition happened and whether she thinks that is appropriate for everyone Instead we get vague pieces of advice like, don t bad talk your boss on social media after you re fired There s a chapter that out In GIRLBOSS, Sophia Amoruso recounts her life from stumbling upon her passion of selling vintage clothes online and becoming an unlikely businesswoman to building her retail fashion empire Along the way, she realizes the value and the difficulty of being the GIRLBOSS of her own lifeThe energy you ll expend focusing on someone else s life is better spent working on your own Just be your own idol This book started out interesting enough, but it gradually lost its steam in the second half when Amoruso began sounding like a broken record Also, the author s bragging and over the top tone was a little off putting at times, so I ended up skimming the last 50 100 pages.I did, however, really look forward to the illustrations featured throughout And I would like to pay homage to that first half by quoting some of my favorite phrasesI, along with countless other GIRLBOSSes who are profiled in this book, girls who are reading this book, and the girls who are yet to become a GIRLBOSS will do it not by whining but by fighting You don t get taken seriously by asking someone to take you seriously You ve got to show up and own it If this is a man s world, who cares I m still real From the first page I knew I wasn t going to like this book don t let the man get you girlboss gag Beyond it being poorly written sounds like a teenager s rambling life story , it doesn t have any true focus or offer any innovative or interesting advice Most of the advice work hard, don t have typos in your resume, attention to detail are well known, common, and repeated in countless books, television shows, etc and honestly something you d learn in high school or college, had she completed those efforts She also comes off as an un relateable and unbelievable character She worked hard in all her jobs And yet most lasted no longer than 2 weeks She does an incredible amount of bragging about her successes and everyone loving her, and rambles her way through her story at a very high level I found GIRLBOSS is Sophia Amoruso s story about her wild childhood, unlikely and extraordinarily successful business venture and her treatise on how to be yourself and bring what is unique to you to your professional life.I googled Sophia after I finished this book and was dismayed to discover she has declared bankruptcy.It seems she still has a successful motivational speaker program going on, but, for whatever reason, her business hasn t worked out.I suspect, she will land on her feet and start again That is a large part of the philosophy contained inGIRLBOSSIn about eight years, I went from a broke, anarchist freegan dead set on smashing the system to a millionaire businesswoman who today is as at home in the boardroom as she is in the dressing room I never intended to be a role model, but there are parts of my story, and the lessons I ve learned from it, that I want to sharepg 23, ebook Sophia believes in being yourself Let your freak flag fly Embrace your weirdness because that is what ultimately makes you greatGIRLBOSS is a feminist book, and Nasty Gal is a feminist brand in the sense that I encourage you, as a girl, to be who you are and do what you want Being a Girlboss is as much about being the boss I put off reading this book for a long time becauseGIRLBOSS is the most vomit inducing book title I can think of and now I have read it I wish I hadn t botheredGIRLBOSS is peculiar mix it s a book that doesn t know whether it wants to be a memoir or if it wants to give business advice Most of Sophia Amoruso s memories are irrelevant and self absorbed, with humble brags littering the pages Sophia constantly reminds readers of the meteoric rise of Nasty Girl and how her own profile has risen with it not to mention all that money she is making and how she gets congratulated on a daily basis, and then she reels off a list of achievements Having been Nasty Gal s first intern during the early days in Berkeley when it was just Sophia and Christina the first full time employee who is now Buying Director , my rating may be a little biased so feel free to take everything from this point forward with a grain of salt.I won t bother with a short summary as this book has gotten enough press and reviews from readers alike that that just seems redundant What I will say is that having worked with Sophia firsthand and having accompanied her on what was Nasty Gal s second buying trip ever, her work ethic is a cut above the rest she eats, sleeps and breathes Nasty Gal always has and probably always will There are parts in the book where she may come across a bit lofty, but she s just telling it like it is and not making any excuses She briefly touches on the subject of extroverts and introverts, mentioning psychologists now believe that social media is a really valuable tool for introverts, because it allows them to communicate and even network on their own terms Being an introvert herself, Girlboss is the creative outlet through which Sophia speaks, on her own terms.What makes Sophia such an icon to girls around the world partly is her relatability Her story is one with a Cinderella esque theme in a male run tech start up world, and it s easy to think feel like something similar could happen to any of us so long as you just
