“#GirlBoss – is not just a book, it’s a movement” – when you read that kind of review from Forbes, it catches your attention.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The girl from L.A. started her own business selling vintage clothing on eBay and build an empire before turning 30. Her rules of success became a guide to every young and aspiring woman.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Before reading the book I thought that it will be just another book full of clichés. After all, how many books about business are written? And how many of them really impressed you? Exactly. Not many.
But since the first page, I understood that this book was different. It was kind of sarcastic, funny and very, very realistic. Usually, people do not talk about that kind of stuff loudly. But the author Sophia Amoruso was different. Different in a weird but very familiar way. She is you. The same girl struggling with difficulties, sometimes low self-esteem and at the same time trying to figure herself out.
If you are starting your own business this is the must-read book. Not because it’s going to inspire you or advise you on how to become a billionaire, but mostly because it teaches you how to be the best version of yourself. The main key to success.
