G&G Reads: #GIRLBOSS


As much as I love my fictions, I do enjoy a little self-help once in a while. Sophia Amoruso, the founder and CEO of NastyGal.com has been on the list of people I look up to in life ever since she was introduced to me by my college lecturer back in 2013. I'm sure you don't need to own Nasty Gal products to call yourself a Nasty Gal right? As long as you have the spirit in you, and that's the case for me, but I do visit the website once in a while to feed my inspiration.



Sophia is definitely a badass bitch and I admire that attitude she has. Don't get me wrong, she doesn't go middle-fingering at any jerk that comes by, she's firm enough to stand her ground for what she believes in and earn for what she wants, but humble enough to listen and learn, and that is definitely what I'm still trying to master. If that doesn't make you love her yet, lets just say that she bought her own brand new Porsche with cash and she's only 28 years old.

Now that I've expressed my admiration towards my woman crush Sophia, a little insight of the book perhaps? It's a part memoir, part self-help book that is incredibly easy to read. It isn't filled with confusing business terms like "Asset Turnover" or "Gross Margin", but more of a look into her life before and after Nasty Gal, and trust me when I say she is just human like any of us.


I also really enjoyed the fashionable illustrations in the beginning of every chapter.

This book was definitely difficult for me to put down once I began reading it, I knew it after I've flipped through 3 chapters in 15 minutes when I only wanted to read just 1. If you're in that phase where you're getting bored and disappointed with your job, this book will get you back on your feet and motivate you to do better.

#GIRLBOSS for life!
