The book that sparked a movement of female entrepreneurship on Instagram and beyond, GIRLBOSS is a New York Times bestseller and was dubbed by the Washington Post as “Lean In for misfits.”
Sophia Amoruso, founder of once multimillion-dollar online brand and marketplace Nasty Gal, writes about her life that went from dumpster diving to starting one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world. The brand started by Sophia simple selling vintage clothes on eBay, leading to mastering the platform and gaining a huge following, resulting in scaling up the business in a big way. Sophia says she wrote #GIRLBOSS for other girls like her: “outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.”
“A witty and cleverly told account . . . It’s this kind of honest advice, plus the humorous ups and downs of her rise in online retail, that make the book so appealing.” —Los Angeles Times
The book was made into a Netflix series in 2017, produced by Charlize Theron.
