If you read my 2016 Bucket List , then you probably saw that one of my goals for this year was to read more— so I went ahead and bought Sophia Amoruso’s #GIRLBOSS. Yes, I hopped on the bandwagon. Yes, I know I’m late; but that’s besides the point. The point is that I really enjoyed her many words of wisdom and I’ve taken a lot from this book.
I thought this book was mainly for aspiring businesswoman and that’s why I never bothered to buy it. But I wanted a book to read and it popped up on my Amazon account and I thought, why not?
The majority of the book is how she started and grew Nasty Gal and in the midst of all the business talk she dropped some real life knowledge and I’m all for learning. She also wrote about things that really stuck with me and I made a list of my favorite quotes.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
“… and it’s way cooler to be a writer than to be an actor saying the writer’s words.”
“Money looks better in the bank than on your feet.”
“If you’re dreaming big, #GIRLBOSS, don’t be discouraged if you have to start small.”
“There are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure.”
“…fortune favors the bold who get shit done.”
“But difficult doesn’t mean impossible, and out of the bajllions of things in the universe that you can’t control, what you can control is how hard you try, and if or when to pack it in.”
And my favorite:
“There’s no AutoCorrect in life— think before texting the universe.”
So if you’re looking for a good read, I definitely recommend this book. You won’t just get tips, you’ll also get a good laugh and there’s probably something in there you can relate to.
If you’ve read the book and want to share some of your favorite quotes/parts or have any books to recommend, you can leave a comment below 🙂
Until next time!
