"I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember:


Don't ever grow up.


Don't become a bore.


Don't let the Man get to you."


These are some of the first few words that stuck out to me upon opening my beloved copy of #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso, the CEO of famed Nasty Gal. I've been waiting patently all week to get my hands on a copy of this book and I went as far as to reserve a copy at Barnes and Noble to ensure that I'd be able to bring it home this week lol. Luckily I was able to pick it up, after paying of course, on my way home from work today. 




Why did I feel like this book is a must have for my book collection? Well, simply put, Sophia Amoruso is a shining example of someone who had the odds of life against her and dared to defy those odds. She created a lane for herself and set an incredible standard that she honestly doesn't feel that other people have to swear by.


I am about four chapters into #GIRLBOSS and I have already gained some valuable tips from Amoruso about life in general. Not only that but her material is completely relatable. She doesn't try to glamorize her past and the fact that she's worked countless jobs doesn't make my employment history seem so crazy anymore. I've learned through trial and error that there isn't exactly one path to success. You actually get to determine success on your terms, not because someone said that you have to follow a specific blueprint in order to be successful. This is exactly what Amoruso believes in and I think that I've found my spirit animal...can I say that lol?




I'm probably going to devour this book within a matter of days and I'll be sure to come back to share my final review with you all. Stay tuned! If you're interested in buying this book based off of my review so far then please do not hesitate to stop by your local Barnes & Nobles to pick a copy (or 5) up. You can also buy the #GIRLBOSS book directly from the Nasty Gal website!
