One of the first books that really got me going on this entrepreneurial journey was #Girlboss. I devoured that book. I was never a customer of Nasty Gal – the style was a little too out there for my closet, but I love Sophia Amoruso’s story of how she launched her empire. And honestly, now that she’s free of Nasty Gal and on a new media mogul adventure, I’m an even bigger fan.
Since I’m a book hoarder, I bought her new The Girlboss Workbook, and I wasn’t expecting it to be so illustration heavy. It’s a bit like an interactive comic book. Gotta love people who appreciate illustration. It’s not purely business related though. It’s almost like a guide to living your best life, and I need all the help I can get.
There’s a section that asks “If you were a combination of four badass women, who would they be?” I think in my professional life, my goal is to be a combination of Sophia Amoruso’s business savvy, Grace Bonney’s eye for style, Anna Bond’s talent, and basically everything about Joanna Gaines. Yes, I’m that basic.
